  • 6 corn tortillas (6-inch), cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Pinch of salt, plus 1/4 teaspoon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 ounces boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut in 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 14 ounce can petite-cut diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 14 ounce can low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 lime wedges
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place tortilla strips on a baking sheet, coat with cooking spray, and sprinkle with chili powder and pinch of salt. Bake until crisp, about 6 to 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Saute chicken thigh pieces until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, onion, and garlic, and cook until onions are tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cook 1 minute.
Add broth, water, cumin, oregano, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Divide soup among bowls and top with tortilla strips, cheese, and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing.
The chile-flavored baked corn tortilla strips make this soup especially good. But in a pinch, you could substitute store-bought tortilla chips.
