Warm From the Inside Out

Every fall when it comes time to set the clocks back an hour for Daylight Saving Time, I begin craving soup.  Maybe it’s the bear in me anticipating hibernation or the reminder that colder temperatures are looming or that germs will soon be abounding in more threatening quantities.  Soup is a wonderful comfort food---warming you from the inside out.  This soup recipe offers a warm blend of Mexican spices and flavors.

Chicken Tortilla Soup
3 (12 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
3 cans (14 oz. each) reduced sodium chicken broth
2 1/2 to 3 cups broken tortilla chips
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
1/2 cup good-quality salsa
1/2 cup sour cream, light or regular (optional)
Optional Garnish:  Sour cream (light or regular)
                            Tomato slices
                            Chopped fresh cilantro

Brush both sides of the chicken breasts with lime juice. Sprinkle evenly  with chili powder and cumin.  Let stand for 10 minutes. 

Preheat grill or broiler to medium high. Grill or broil chicken 5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Cool.  Cut or tear into 1/2-inch pieces.

Heat broth to a boil in large saucepan. Add tortilla chips; cover and let stand 10 minutes. Puree mixture in batches in food processor or blender; return to saucepan. Stir 1-1/2 cups cheese into broth mixture; cook over low heat until melted, stirring frequently. Stir in salsa and chicken; heat through. Ladle into bowls.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese and garish with sour cream, tomato slices and/or chopped cilantro, if desired.

Makes 6 servings.

Did You Know:  Daylight Saving Time (DST) has been used in the U.S. since World War I.  Through 2006, DST in the U.S. ended a few days before Halloween.  In 2007, a new law extended DST to the first Sunday in November, with the purpose of providing trick-or-treaters more light and therefore increased safety.  The time change impacts numerous businesses.  For example, when the clocks fall back one hour in October, all Amtrak trains in the U.S. that are running on time stop at 2:00 a.m. and wait one hour before resuming. Overnight passengers are often surprised to find their train at a dead stop and their travel time an hour longer than expected.  But to keep to their published schedules, trains cannot leave a station before the scheduled time.
