Chicken Lime Soup

I made this after I had left over chicken thighs I cooked in the crockpot the night before and wasn't sure what to do with the leftovers.

1 lb of Chicken Thighs *boiled and shredded*
1/2 onion
2 garlic cloves
1 lime
2 cups of frozen corn
1 15 oz can of Blackbeans (rinsed and drained)
1 15 oz Can of Fire Roasted Tomatoes
3 cups of Chicken stock
1 cup water
1 tsp of dried Rosemary
1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 tsp of Blackpepper
1/2 tsp of Salt

In large pot sautee chopped onion and garlic in a bit of olive oil. Add blackbeans, corn, diced tomatoes, chicken, spices, chicken stock, water, and zest of one lime. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 45-60 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and juice of a lime slice.
