    SallyG's Note:

    Easy and light Chicken Tortilla Soup. Got it out of the Sunday paper submitted by Pam Anderson from her cookbook, Perfect One Dish Dinners. It has become a favorite!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a Dutch oven or soup kettle over medium-high heat. Toss chicken with salt, chili powder and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the oil to coat. Add chicken to hot pot; cook, turning only once, until impressively brown on both sides, 5-6 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cut (or shred when cool enough) into bite-size pieces.
    2. 2
      Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in the hot empty pot; add onions and saute until softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and peppers; continue to saute until fragrant about a minute longer. Add chicken broth, tomatoes and black beans. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low. Simmer partially covered and skim foam as it surfaces, to blend flavors, about 5 minutes. Stir in chicken and turn off heat.
    3. 3
      Place a portion of tortilla strips in each bowl, ladle over hot soup and top as desired, letting each person squirt in a little lime.
    4. 4
      Toppings:.

      diced avocados.
    7. 7

    8. 8
      chopped fresh cilantro.
    9. 9
      hot red pepper sauce.
    10. 10
      Make it quick: To speed cooking, heat the broth in the microwave while the onions and garlic are cooking.
