Tortilla soup

This is a recipe from my neighbor who made it for us last Sunday and it was WONDERFUL!!!

1 Onion
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp powdered cumin
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp garlic powder
1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes
2 cans condensed chicken broth
1 1/4 cups water
1 cup whole corn kernels, cooked
1 cup white hominy
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chile peppers
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 boneless chicken breast halves, cooked and cut into bite-sized pieces
sliced avacado
shredded cheese (I used cheddar, they recommend monterey jack cheese)
chopped green onions (optional)
sour cream

In medium stock pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sautee onion and garlic in oil until soft. Stir in chili powder, cumin, tomatoes, lime juice, broth and water. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Stir in corn, hominy, chiles, beans,cilantro, and chicken. Simmer for 1 hour.
Ladle soup into individual serving bowls, and top with crushed tortilla chips, avacado slices, cheese, chopped green onion and sour cream.
