Meal share recipe: Chicken Tortilla Soup

I can't tell you how much I am enjoying my meal exchange lately.  It is really such a treat to have a meal brought to you once a week and so easy just to double your recipe on another night.  Here is my recipe for the week: Chicken Tortilla Soup.
2 t olive oil, 1 medium chopped onion, 4 minced garlic cloves, 1 jalapeno pepper chopped and seeds removed if you don't want too much spice, 1/2 medium green pepper chopped, 3-4 small chicken breasts, 1 can of corn, 1/2 cup white wine, 2 teaspoons cumin, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 4 14 oz cans of chicken broth, 2 14 oz cans of diced tomatoes, 2 8 oz. cans of tomato sauce, 1 can of black beans rinsed and drained.
Saute onion, garlic, jalapeno, and green pepper in large pot until soft.  Add rest of ingredients and bring to a boil.  After 15 minutes, remove chicken breasts and shred.  Return shredded chicken to pot and simmer and additional 45 minutes.  Serve topped w/ cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream, and juice of lime.
