Essay:

Reflecting my own zest for life, I chose the “Chicken, Corn, and Tortilla Soup” for my recipe selection. I savor life to the fullest, and discover that my food selections echo this approach. I also vigorously pursue a healthy lifestyle, and look for foods that are not only tasty, but also low in fat and calories.

Another reason this recipe appealed to me is due to the multi-cultural society that abounds in my home state of Georgia. Our state reflects the global world around us, and the restaurants and foods available in my community underscore this fact. One of my favorite ethnic foods is Mexican, and this recipe delves directly from this country to our south.
The source of the ingredients is from my local grocery store, although my family grows these ingredients in their vegetable garden during the produce season here in Georgia. The recipe contains healthy ingredients: tomatoes, fresh corn, and other low fat items. It also appeals to my age group with the addition of tortilla chips. The underlying flavors of cumin, onion, garlic, and fresh cilantro add depth to the recipe. Finally, the garnishes of lime wedges, cilantro and tortilla chips finish off the dish with a colorful palette.

There is no doubt that this recipe is a hit with my friends and me. Stop by my house any Friday evening, and you might find a circle of us cooking up a dinner. What is first on the menu? You guessed it: “Chicken, Corn, and Tortilla Soup.”
