(Before I started the soup, I cooked the chicken in the crockpot. I used Trader Joe's frozen chicken, placed it straight in the crockpot on high. Once it seems to be thawed, season with salt, pepper and 2 tsp of cumin) then cook for about 45 minutes, or until done. Remove from crockpot and shred. Wipe out crockpot.)
On high heat, pour in olive oil. Once heated, add garlic, potatoes, 2/3 scallions, 2/3 cilantro, bell pepper, season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook for about 30 minutes
Next, add corn, tomatoes, 1 tsp cumin, chicken broth and water. Stir to combine
Add in bay leaves. Cover and let cook for about 3 hours, stirring occasionally
After two hours, add in the shredded chicken and season with salt, pepper and cumin to taste, cover and continue cooking for the last hour. You may need to add 1/2-1 cup of brother/water depending on how "soupy" you want it
Once soup is ready, serve, and top with remaining cilantro and scallions. You can also add avocado, cheese and corn chips if desired
