> 1 lb skinless boneless chicken breasts
> 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
> 4 corn tortillas
> 2 tbsp olive oil
> 1 jalapeño
> 1 cup diced onion
> 1 (15 oz) can black beans
> 1 (10 oz) bag frozen corn, thawed
> 1 (15 oz) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
> 1 tbsp cumin


Cut the chicken into 2-inch chunks. In a medium pot, combine the broth and chicken. Heat to a boil on high. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cook 8–10 min., until chicken is cooked.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F. Slice the tortillas into ¼-inch strips. Lay tortillas on a parchment-lined baking sheet and toss with 1 tbsp olive oil. Cook 15 min., until golden brown and crispy, stirring halfway through.
Remove the core and the seeds from the jalapeño and finely chop. In a heavy-bottom pot, heat remaining olive oil on medium. Add the onion and jalapeño. Cook 2 min., until soft.
Transfer cooked chicken to a bowl and shred, reserving the broth. Drain and rinse the beans. To the pot with the onion, add the corn, beans, tomatoes, chicken broth, and cumin. Heat to a simmer and cook 15 min. Season with salt (in moderation) and pepper. Stir in chicken and cook 1 min., until chicken is warm.
Garnish with tortilla strips to serve.


Garnish soups with fresh, diced avocado and a squeeze of lime for an extra kick.
