1    can (28 oz/796 mL) diced tomatoes, with juice
2 cups    chopped cooked chicken    
1 cup    corn kernels (no need to thaw if frozen)
1 tbsp    ground cumin    
1 tbsp    dried oregano    
Salt and pepper
4 cups    chicken broth    
2 cups    crushed corn tortilla chips,     
1 tbsp    chopped fresh cilantro    
1 tsp    chipotle chile powder (see tip, opposite)

Sour Cream

DIRECTIONS
    In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine garlic, onion, tomatoes, chicken, corn, cumin, oregano, 1⁄2 tsp salt, 1⁄4 tsp pepper and broth. Cover and cook on Low for about 8 hours or on high for about 4 hours, until onions are tender and soup is bubbling. Stir in half the tortilla chips and the cilantro. In a small bowl, combine chipotle chile powder and lime juice until smooth. Stir into soup. Cook on high for 20 minutes, until tortilla chips are softened and soup is thickened. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, if desired. Ladle into bowls and garnish with remaining tortilla chips, cheese and sour cream.
