If we are ever in Utah, we make sure to stop at the Sundance Foundry Grill for dinner. Everything on the menu is tasty, but our favorite is the tortilla soup. Lucky us, we got the recipe last time we were there. It really is especially tasty.

1 jalapeno, fresh, minced
1 red onion, medium sized, chopped
3 Cups roma tomatoes, diced
3 Cups corn kernels, preferably fresh
1 TB cumin seed
2 Quarts chicken stock
2 TB fresh cilantro
3 Cups grilled chicken breast, diced
