Servings: 6 Yield: 10 cups Prep 15 mins Total Time 30 mins


  • 4 six-inch corn tortillas, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • Salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 orange and/or yellow sweet peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • Ground black pepper
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 14 1/2 ounce cans no salt added petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 4 ounce can diced green chiles
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 avocado, halved, pitted peeled, and chopped

Make It

1. Place the tortilla strips on a paper towel-lined plate, sprinkle with a little salt, and cover with another paper towel. Microwave in 30-second increments until light brown and crisp, about 3 minutes. Cool and reserve for serving.

2. In a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven warm the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped peppers, onion, and salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and tender, about 7 minutes. Stir in the broth, tomatoes, green chiles, and sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the chicken into 1/2-inch pieces.

3. Stir in the chicken and simmer until just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with pepper. Top with the avocado and tortilla strips.
