Ingredients

  • 1/2

    T. vegetable oil, plus more for frying

  • 1

    large onions, chopped

  • 4

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2

    T plus 3/4 tsp. coarse kosher salt

  • 1/2

    tsp cumin

  • 1/4

    tsp red chile flakes

  • 6

    cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1

    can (14 oz.) diced tomatoes

  • Juice of 1 limes

  • 1

    pkg (8 oz.) small corn tortillas, cut into 1/4-in.-thick strips

  • 2

    lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/4-in.-thick strips

  • 1

    zucchini, diced

  • 1

    can (14 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed

  • Sliced avocado, sour cream, grated Monterey jack cheese, and/or sliced green onions for topping

Directions

1. Heat 1/2 T vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in two-thirds of the garlic, 1/2 T. salt, cumin, and chile flakes and cook 2 minutes. 2. Add broth, tomatoes, and half the lime juice and increase heat to a gentle simmer; cook 20 minutes. 3. Meanwhile, pour about 1 in. of vegetable oil into a small frying pan set over medium-high heat. When oil is hot but not smoking, add one-third of the tortilla strips and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 2 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer strips to a paper towel-lined baking pan. Repeat with remaining tortilla strips in two batches. Sprinkle with 1 tsp. salt. Set aside. 4. Take soup off heat and purée soup with immersion blender. Return to heat and bring to a simmer. In a small bowl, toss chicken with remaining lime juice, garlic, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes. Add marinated chicken, black beans, and zucchini to soup and simmer 5 minutes, until chicken is just cooked through. Serve hot with tortilla strips and your choice of toppings.
