Ingredients

  • 1

    tablespoon vegetable oil, plus more for frying

  • 2

    large onions, chopped

  • 8

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 1

    tablespoon plus 1 1/2 tsp. coarse kosher salt

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/2

    teaspoon red chile flakes

  • 12

    cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1

    can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes

  • Juice of 2 limes

  • 1

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

  • 2

    lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, in 1/4-in. thick strips

  • 1

    cup chopped fresh cilantro

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

Directions

1. Heat 1 tbsp. vegetable oil in a large pot (at least 5 qts.) over medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in two-thirds of the garlic, 1 tbsp. 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. Purée soup in batches in a blender. Return soup to pot and resume simmering. In a small bowl, toss chicken with remaining lime juice, garlic, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes, then add to soup and simmer 5 minutes, until chicken is just cooked through. Stir in cilantro. Serve hot with tortilla strips and your choice of toppings.
