Chicken Tortilla Soup


1/2 fresh lime, juice
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp ground cumin
4 flour tortillas
1 tbsp olive oil
4 boneless chicken breast halves, cooked and shredded
2 cans chicken broth
1 can diced green chillies
1 can diced tomatoes with green chillie peppers
1 small finely chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic clove

Chicken Tortilla Soup


After combining the chicken broth, green chillies, tomatoes with green chillies, onion, and garlic in a soup pot, add the shredded chicken to it. Bring this to a boil, and stir frequently.

Now reduce heat and simmer for about 30-35 minutes. As you add the lime juice, cilantro, cayenne, and cumin to this, simmer for 10-15 minutes. Cut the tortillas into 1/2 x 2-inch strips. Fry this in hot olive oil in a skillet until it turns golden brown. Than drain on paper towels.

Garnish with shredded cheese and the tortilla strips. Enjoy!!!
