  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • One 32oz box chicken broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels

    • My substitute: One 15oz can of diced tomatoes with green chillies
  • 1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts whole
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • crushed tortilla chips
    • my substitute: warm tortillas
  1. In a large sauce pan or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat. Add in the onions and sauté till soft.
  2. Add the salt, bell pepper, garlic, and cumin and sauté for 2 mins.
  3. Add the broth bay leaf corn, tomatoes, and chicken. Bring to a boil then simmer on low for 10-15 mins till chicken is cooked through.

  • Crushed up candy canes. put the candy canes in a plastic baggy and crush them with a meat cleaver.
  • Vanilla ice cream as much as your heart desires

Make your self a bowl of ice cream and sprinkle the candy cane on top.
