I love the original Chicken Tortilla Soup, but i was way to grease and heavy. So I decided to lighten I up by baking the tortilla,plus potatoes to I've a more hearty recipes. And add lime to give it a zesty freshness.
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the tortilla strips 1 teaspoon oil and salt. Seal bag and shake to coat. Arrange tortilla strips on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes or until crisp., sirring once. Cool on paper towels.
In a large saucepan saute chicken in remaining oil until no longer pink and lightly browned. Add onion, cook and stir until onion is tender. Add broth and potatoes.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. add the corn, chilies, cilantro and pepper. cook until heated through. Stir in line juice. Garnish tortilla strips.
