Step 1:

In a large pot, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat. Saute the diced onion and bell pepper just until it starts to get soft. Next, add minced garlic, chili powder, paprika, and ground cumin. Cook for about 60 seconds. After that, pour in the chicken broth and put the chicken breasts. Bring it to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer until the chicken is cooked through for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 2:

Once the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the pot and shred it using two forks. Return them into the pot. Add the fire-roasted diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, black beans, undrained diced green chiles, and frozen corn. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring the soup to a simmer. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes.
