In a frying pan, fry the basic veggies including the onions, jalapeno, and a bit of garlic. Keep frying at low heat.
Add other ingredients including tomatoes, chilies, and black beans. Stir it and then add water and chicken broth so the pan fills to the top.
Put in a cup of fresh corn which is an essential ingredient of all kinds of soups. Then for seasoning add chili powder and cumin, some fresh cilantro, and lemon juice for a kick.
Now it's the time to add uncooked chicken and there is no need to do so. Put it in and continue cooking for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, cut the tortilla strips into smaller strips and fry them in olive oil until they become crunchy.
After that remove the chicken with the kitchen tongs and tatter it. Then add these chicken fragments back into the pot and let it cook for 5 minutes.
So your tortilla soup is ready to serve. No for topping it you can use sour cream, avocado, lime, and also salsa if you want.
Take your serving bowl and put some tortilla chips at the bottom. Fill it with your soup and then it's time for giving it a better look.
Sprinkle some cheese and add more tortillas at the top. Drop some sour cream and some slices of avocado. Garnish some green chili and squeeze half lemon on it.
