Garrison Red walls and Tortilla Soup

So I am sitting on my bed recovering from painting (i'm helping out a friend we're staying with, by giving him an awesome deal (aka free) on decorating work).
I found a color "Garrison Red". It's a nice mix between a dark rose and burgundy. maybe. It was quite close to another color I love just because of the name- "Cocoa Rose". It has a nice ring to it. I usually end up going with colors based on their name. Ok, they usually match the room really well too!!!
Anyway... this post is really to stick this yummy recipe on here!
It's delicious and warmness all mixed together. (and it's from Family Circle... ssh!)
Tortilla Soup
Juice from one lime
3/4 pound of chicken breast (whole)
2 tbsp of hot chili powder

2 tsp of oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can (14 1/2oz) of jalapeno flavored diced tomatoes
3 cups of low sodium chicken broth

1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 avocado, cut into chunks
Tortilla chips

First- Heat broiler. Drizzle lime juice on chicken. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of chili powder. Coat pan with nonstick spray. Broil chicken 5-6 minutes on both sides.
*(if you have leftover chicken from another meal you can use that instead)*
Second- Heat oil in large deep pot over medium heat; add garlic and chili powder. Cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes (plus juice) and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes, covered.
Third- Shred chicken and add to chicken broth mixture. Simmer for another 5 minutes.
Separate into 4 bowls. Top with cheese, avocado and crushed tortilla chips.
