Chicken Tortilla Soup

WELCOME to my first co-hosting party! I am co-hosting a party with Christina from Its A Keeper. I have been following her blog since I’ve started mine. She has some amazing recipes on her blog, she has been featured on Television, magazines and has published books.  I am very honored to be hosting a party with her!
This is the first time I’ve made this soup, I was very surprised how well it turned out. I used to eat it all the time when I worked at the restaurant and always wanted to try making it. I am glad I did and it wasn’t hard at all!

5-6 chicken tenders (or 2 chicken breasts)
9 cups of water (it will cook down to about 7 1/2 to 8 cups of stock)
2 bay leaves
1 tsp coriander 
3 tbs olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped tomatoes
3 garlic cloves
1 tbs lime juice
1 can of corn

7-8 cups of stock
4-5 oz of tomato sauce
1/2 to 1 tsp red pepper flakes (per taste)

Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream and tortilla strips for topping
