Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 pounds boneless - skinless chicken breasts, sliced into bite-sized strips
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper - sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 green bell pepper - sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 medium yellow onion - sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic - minced
  • 1 quart low-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 corn tortillas - sliced into strips
  • Extra vegetable oil for frying
Optional Toppings
  • Cilantro
  • Scallions
  • Avocado
  • Lime Wedges

Instructions

  • Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over high heat in a Dutch oven or other heavy-bottomed pot. Once the oil is shimmering, add the chicken pieces in a single layer. Sprinkle the cumin, coriander, thyme, salt, and pepper over the top of the chicken. Allow the chicken to cook, undisturbed, until it is browned and releases naturally from the pot (4 to 5 minutes). Add the peppers and onions and toss well. Saute for 5 minutes, then add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds. Pour in the broth and allow the mixture to come to a boil. Cover the pot, turn the heat down to low, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat ¼ inch of vegetable oil in a skillet set over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the tortilla slices and fry until the pieces begin to feel stiff (about 60-90 seconds). Remove with a slotted spoon and set on a paper towel-line plate to drain.
  • Taste the soup and add salt as needed. Serve topped with tortilla strips and garnishes of your choice.
