Katie’s Mexican stew

My friend Kate made this for me a week after I had a baby. I devoured it. I am very impressed with the flavors and wholesome yumminess in every bite!
– 1 lb chicken – I boil it and pull it apart (shredded)
– Cooked rice (start with 3/4 c uncooked) and 1.25 c water – I use less than normal so it doesn’t get too mushy when you add it to the soup – I prefer brown rice, but I’m sure either would be good
– can of black beans – rinsed
– can of corn – rinsed
– can of diced tomatoes – rinsed
– a few cups of chicken broth – however much you like, I guess depending on your preferred consistency
– lime juice (usually do about 1 lime’s worth)
– about 1 T of chili powder (again can vary based on preference here)
– about 1/2 T of cumin
– salt and pepper
– a bay leaf or two – kinda weird, but I feel like it really does make a difference
– a little garlic or garlic powder
I just mix it all together and let it simmer for a bit.
– chopped cilantro
– chopped avocado
– slices of lime
– tortilla chips
– (shredded cheese)
– (sour cream)
