Ingredients Directions
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chili powder and saute for 1 minute more.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, except the tortillas and cheese, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the tortillas into 1/2 inch strips. Place the strips on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 5 to 6 minutes until the tortillas are light browned.
  4. To serve, place some of the tortilla strips in a cup or bowl. Ladle the soup over the tortillas and top with a sprinkling of cheese.
