Spicy Broth

I threw this together last night based on what I had in the house after being gone for five days and not having been grocery shopping since Thanksgiving. I’ve just been eating it as a soup, but it’s a yummy, spicy base to which you could add rotisserie chicken pieces, little turkey meatballs, beans, rice, or big chunks of veggies to make it a heartier meal.

Spicy Broth

8 or so cups low sodium, fat free chicken broth
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 sweet onion, diced
3 stalks celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, diced
a couple handfuls frozen corn kernels
kosher salt and black pepper to taste
1/2 – 1 tsp cumin
1/2 – 1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp oregano
about 1 Tbs lemon juice (optional)

Cook the onion, celery, and carrot until soft. Add all remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and then cover and simmer for a bit.

Amyella (pronounced Amy-ella) is a pseudonym for Amy Levitt, a fitness and health food fanatic and a beach girl at heart. She has been sharing her sometimes nonsensical thoughts and self-amusing stories online since 2002 and currently spends a good deal of her time wrangling her 90 pound Rottweiler and 60 pound Boxer. Which is quite a show.
The origin of the name Amyella.

Here's my deal. It's wicked exciting!
