Creamy Taco Soup

1 pound of ground beef or 3 cups of cooked diced chicken.  I used 2 chicken breasts.  You can boil your chicken or fry it in the pan.  If using beef drain.  I used chicken.
1/2 - cup of chopped onion
2 - cloves minced garlic  (I only used 1 whole garlic)
1 - tablespoon cumin
1 - teaspoon chili powder
1 - 8 oz cream cheese
2 - 10 oz of tomato's with chili pepper undrained (Could puree these for the non-tomato lovers)
2 - 8 to 10 oz cans of beef or chicken broth
1/2 - cup heavy cream
2 - teaspoons of salt
1 - 10 oz can of corn 

In large pot brown beef or chicken with onion and garlic.
Add all the spices and cook a couple of minutes.  Cut the cream cheese to small hunks and add to pot.  Stir and mash cream cheese until melted.  Add remaining ingredients and stir.
Simmer for 30 to 60 minutes.

Suggested toppings:  corn chips, salsa, sour cream, grated cheese and chopped onions.
