Ingredients

6
corn tortillas (6-inch)
2
tablespoons vegetable oil
1
small onion, chopped (1/3 cup)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
medium Anaheim, poblano or jalapeño chile, seeded, chopped
1
carton (32 oz) Progresso™ reduced-sodium chicken broth (4 cups)
1
can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2
teaspoon coarse (kosher or sea) salt
1 1/2
cups shredded cooked chicken breast
Avocado slices, if desired
Shredded Monterey Jack cheese, if desired
Chopped fresh cilantro, if desired
1
lime, cut into wedges

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. Brush both sides of tortillas with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Cut tortillas in half; cut halves into 1/4-inch strips. Place in single layer on cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until strips begin to brown, stirring once halfway through baking; cool. Strips will become crisp when cooled.
  • 2 Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook onion in oil 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic and chile; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in broth, tomatoes and salt. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 minutes. Add chicken; heat until hot.
  • 3 To serve, divide half of tortilla strips among 6 individual serving bowls; ladle in soup. Top with avocado and cheese; garnish with remaining tortilla strips and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
