Step 1

Place a large Dutch oven on a stove over medium-high heat, then heat the oil, and cook the tortilla strips in batches for about 1 minute or until nice and crispy. Remove the cooked tortilla strips with a slotted spoon, then place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain off the excess oil, and then season them with some salt.

Step 2

Lower the heat to medium, then in the same pot, add the onion, garlic, and jalapeno, and give them a good stir, cook them for about 4 minutes or until softened. Add the broth, tomatoes, beans, corn, chicken, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper, then bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and let it continue to simmer for about 25 minutes while stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Turn off the heat, then remove the pot, and on a separate plate, shred the chicken. Put the pot back on the stove over medium-low heat, then put the shredded chicken back into the pot, and stir them to combine. Add the lime juice and stir them well, then let it simmer for 5 more minutes, and serve. Enjoy!
