  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1  teaspoon  dried Mexican oregano or dried regular oregano, crushed
  • 2 14 1/2 ounce can  diced tomatoes, undrained

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread tortilla strips in an even layer on two large baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

2. In an extra-large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and oregano; cook about 3 minutes or until onion is softened, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes and chile pepper plus the reserved 1 teaspoon adobo sauce. Bring to boiling; cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Add broth; return to boiling. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add chicken and black pepper; heat through.

3. Set aside a few baked tortilla strips. Gradually stir the remaining tortilla strips into chicken mixture; heat through. Remove from heat; sprinkle with cheese. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and the reserved tortilla strips. In a small bowl, combine sour cream and milk; serve with the chilaquiles.
