Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

1 1/2 c boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 c chopped onion
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 T butter
2 chicken boullion cubes
1 c hot water
1 t taco seasoning
2 c half and half
1 1/2 c cheddar cheese
1 (16oz) can corn
1 (4oz) can diced green chilis
1 medium tomato, chopped
tortilla chips

Cut up chicken into bite-size pieces. In a large skillet, brown chicken, onion, and garlic in butter. Dissolve boullion cubes in hot water. Add to pan, along with taco seasoning; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add cream, cheese, corn and chilis. Cook and stir over low heat until cheese is melted and heated through. Remove from stove. Garnish with tomatoes and cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!

*I've made the chicken several different ways: the way it says, leftover chicken, rotisserie chicken from Costco, and canned chicken and it's ALL delicious. Make sure you don't cook the soup on too high of heat otherwise the cream will curdle a little bit. Keep the heat low and remove it immediately after cheese has been melted and incorporated.
