    • Ingredients for Soup:
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 2½ cups chopped onion
    • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
    • 2 (6-inch) corn tortillas, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • 4 teaspoons Spice of Life “Southwestern Mesquite” spices or make my blend of spices, see shopping tips below
    • 6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, I like Swanson’s
    • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
    • 1 (14 oz) can yellow hominy, drained and rinsed
    • 1 (14 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
    • 2 cups cooked chopped chicken
    • Juice of 1 lime
    • Ingredients for Topping:
    • 1¼ cups reduced-fat tortilla chips, crushed


    1. In a large nonstick pot, add olive oil, onions and garlic. Sauté for 1 minute.
    2. Add chopped tortillas, tomato paste, and Southwestern mesquite seasonings or my blend (see shopping tip) and sauté for 2 minutes.
    3. Stir in chicken broth and tomatoes. Bring up to a boil, turn down heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
    4. Add hominy, beans, chicken and fresh squeezed lime juice. Mix well. Cook 10 minutes more.
    5. Shopping Tips-At a wine event on the Central Coast of California, I discovered the most amazing spice company called Spice of Life. They sell many fabulous blends of the most delicious, all natural spices. In this recipe, I used their “Southwestern Mesquite.” It gives this soup a rich, wonderful flavor. Visit their website to order some or see where they sell their line of spices at You won’t be disappointed! And, they’re super nice people too!
    6. ***If you don’t want to use Spice of Life’s blend, you can make your own with this combination of spices-2 teaspoons paprika, 1 teaspoons chili powder and 1 teaspoon cumin. If you desire more heat, add ⅛ teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne).
