When I first had this, I made my own crispy tortilla strips. No need. Not really sure why the original recipe called for them. Not a bad idea to have bread on the side though. I have changed-up this recipe a zillion times. I often use hot sauce instead of chili powder as I like the taste better and you can control the "heat".
Easy to double.
