Chicken Tortilla Soup

This soup is quick and I believe pretty healthy. I know it's not soup season, but I guess I was craving it the other day!

1/2 c. chopped onion
3 chicken breasts halves
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. chili powder
2 cans chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can green chilies, with juice
1 can black beans, rinsed (you don't have to, you can throw the whole can in, but it kind of discolors the soup)

sour cream
tortilla chips (or corn tortillas cut into strips and baked 7-8 minutes at 400 degrees--a little better than the chips as they don't get as soggy)
lime juice

For the chicken, I like to cook it in the crockpot with some chicken broth, cumin, and garlic so it's nice and tender. Or you can just cook it however you want to! Chop chicken, cook onions in some oil or in the crockpot, mix everything together and heat through. Top with cheese, cilantro, sour cream, lime juice, and mix with tortilla chips or tortilla strips. Easy!
