  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups soup, 1/4 cup chicken, about 3 tablespoons tortilla strips, and about 1 tablespoon cheese)

Ingredients

  • none Soup:
  • 2 none onions, peeled and quartered
  • 2 none tomatoes, cored and quartered
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 none garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 cups Chicken Stock or 3 (16-ounce) cans fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • none Toppings:
  • 3 none (6-inch) corn tortillas, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast (about 6 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded part-skim Oaxaca cheese or reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 none lime wedges

Preparation

To prepare soup, combine the onions and tomatoes in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat until hot. Add the dried oregano, ground cumin, and minced garlic, and sauté 10 seconds. Add pureed onion mixture to pan (mixture will boil vigorously), and cook 1 minute. Stir in Chicken Stock and salt; bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°.

To prepare toppings, place the tortilla strips in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until tortilla strips are toasted.

Ladle soup into each of 6 bowls, and top with the baked tortilla strips, shredded chicken, and cheese. Serve with lime wedges.
