4 each  6-inch corn tortillas
5 tsp  olive oil
1 each  large onion
3 each  medium garlic cloves
14 1/2 oz  low fat unsalted chicken broth
14 1/2 oz  canned unsalted diced tomatoes
1 1/2 cup  sweet potatoes
0 1/2 oz  chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 cup  small zucchini
1 lb  halibut fillets
0 1/4 g  salt
0 1/4 cup  fresh cilantro
  1. Cut tortillas, first in half, then crosswise into 1/4 inch strips.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large pot over medium heat, until very hot but not smoking. Add in the tortilla strips and sauté until golden brown and crisp, about 4-5 minutes, stir often. Remove from pot onto paper towels; set aside.
  3. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil to pot and cook the onions for 5 minutes, stir often.
  4. Add in the garlic and cook for only 30 seconds before adding in the broth, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and chipotle pepper; bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. While simmering, cut the zucchini into 1/2 inch pieces.
  6. Rinse the fish and dry with paper towels, then cut into 1 inch pieces.
  7. After broth mixture has simmered for 10 minutes add in the zucchini and salt, let simmer another 5 minutes.
  8. Stir in the halibut pieces being careful not to break it up. Simmer until fish flaked easily with a fork, about 5 minutes. Stir only once and very gently.
  9. Serve 2 cups soup topped with cilantro and tortilla strips.
