• 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
• 1 large onion, finely chopped
• 1 large clove garlic, minced
• 4 jalapenos, fresh or pickled, seeded and chopped
• 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
• 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
• 2 cans (15 ounces each) pinto beans, drained & rinsed
• 6 cups chicken broth

• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
• 6 corn tortillas, for topping
• 1/4 cup vegetable oil, for frying
• 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Directions

In a stockpot over moderately low heat, combine 2 tablespoons of oil and the onion, garlic, and jalapenos.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft
Add the chili powder, and cook and stir for 15 seconds.
Add the tomatoes, beans, broth, chicken, and cilantro, and simmer for 10 minutes.

While the soup simmers, cut the tortillas in half, stack them, and then cut them crosswise into 1/4-inch-wide strips.

In a skillet, heat the 1/4 cup of oil over moderate heat; fry the tortilla strips in batches, stirring constantly, for 15 seconds, or until crisp and pale golden.
Drain the strips on paper towels.
