Why I Love This Recipe

ThIs was passed onto me from a friend, but I changed it up a bit by adding, corn, avacado and cilantro. To thicken this recipe up, you can blend broth with the corn in a blender.

Ingredients You'll Need

Vegetable oil for frying
Tortilla's cut into strips
1 med. chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp ground oregano
6 cups chicken broth (you can use the broth in a can)
1-1/2 tsp salt
1-tsp sugar
1-1/4 tsp pepper
1 bay leaf
1 tsp ground cumin
1-8 oz. can tomato sauce
1-1/2 cup corn (whatever you prefer, frozen or canned) you can use fresh corn also
2 large cooked and shredded chicken breasts
Small container of sour cream
1 bunch of cilantro, washed and chopped
2 Avacado's (sliced or cubed)
