Rumbi Island Grill Tortilla Soup

-3 boneless skinless chicken breast halves 
-8 cups chicken broth 
-1 cup carrot, diced very thin 
-1/4 teaspoon ground allspice 
-1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped  
-1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
-1 tablespoon fresh ginger, chopped 
-1 tablespoon garlic clove, minced 
-1 cup chopped tomato 
-1 cup coconut milk 
-1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce 
-1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded 
-2 cups white corn tortilla chips, cut into strips 
-2 limes, cut into wedges 


In a large pot, combine the cooked chicken, water, bouillon and carrot. Season with allspice, thyme, cinnamon, ginger and garlic. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until carrots are tender. Pour in the tomato, coconut milk and hot pepper sauce. Heat through, but do not boil.

Ladle into bowls, and top with shredded mozzarella cheese and tortilla strips. Squeeze juice onto soup from lime wedges. 

You will feel kinda fancy! -- 
You just made a restaurant soup! :)

*i like to put avocado wedges in my tortilla soup too, but that's just me*
