Chicken Tortilla Soup

2 chicken breasts cooked and diced (or shredded)
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
1 cup frozen corn kernels
1 cup chopped onion
1 can black beans drained and rinsed
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup chunky salsa
8 ounces corn tortilla chips
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (optional)

In a large pot, saute the onion in the oil over medium heat until tender. Add the garlic and cumin and mix well. Then add the broth, corn, black beans, chili powder, lemon juice and salsa. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes.

Break up some tortilla chips into individual bowls and pour soup over chips. Top with the Monterey Jack cheese and a little sour cream.
