chicken tortilla soup

How have I not posted this before? This is perfect winter, chilly weather food. It's currently Mr. Sachinky's favorite dish, one I have made three times already in quick succession.

can of pinto beans
can of black beans
spicy hot V8
bay leaves
salt/ pepper
shredded rotisserie chicken
sweet yellow corn
can of diced fire-roasted tomatoes
chicken broth

served with a chicken-avocado burrito

I just eyeball the measurements. I don't own a large stockpot otherwise I'd make this in giant batches. Let it simmer for a half an hour or so before stirring in a large dollop of sour cream just to thicken it up a bit. Served topped with fresh avocados, lime juice, chopped cilantro, bite sized tortilla chips, guacamole and even more sour cream!
