  • Place the olive oil in a large saucepan set over medium heat. When hot add the onion and sauté for about five minutes, until onion is tender.
  • Add the garlic, cumin and chili powder. Sauté for an additional minute or two, being careful not to burn the garlic or spices.
  • Add the chicken stock, tomatoes, corn, beans, and chicken. Bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile make the tortilla garnish by heating oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Drop in about 1/3 of the tortilla strips at a time and cook until crisp. Drain on paper towels.
  • Remove chicken breasts from pot and allow to cool slightly then shred with 2 forks. Return to pot and simmer an additional 5 minutes.
  • Add salt and pepper; stir in cilantro. Adjust seasonings.
  • Place an equal amount of soup in each serving bowl. Top with tortilla strips and a tablespoon or two of cheese.
