Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) black beans, drained
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernel, thawed
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • canola oil
  • 4 tortillas, cut into thin strips

Instructions

  • Season boneless chicken breast with salt and pepper to taste. Arrange in a single layer in 4-qt slow cooker.
  • Add onions, garlic, black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, diced green chilies, tomato paste, chili powder, and oregano. 
  • Add chicken stock and stir to combine.
  • Cover with lid and cook on HIGH for about 4 to 5 hours or on LOW for about 6 to 7 hours until chicken is cooked and easily shreds.
  • Remove chicken and coarsely shred with two forks. Return to pot and continue to cook for another 3 to 5 minutes or until meat is heated through. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.
  • Meanwhile, in a pan over medium heat, heat about 1-inch of oil. Add tortilla strips and stir to prevent from sticking. Fry for about 1 to 2 minutes or until crisp and golden. With a slotted spoon, remove from pan and drain on paper towels.
  • Ladle soup into serving bowls and top with fried tortilla strips. Serve hot.
