Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread tortilla strips in an even layer on two large baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool completely.

  • In a very large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken, onion, and oregano. Cook and stir about 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Add salsa and undrained tomatoes. Bring to boiling; cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Add broth. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.

  • Set aside a few of the baked tortilla strips. Gradually stir the remaining tortilla strips into the chicken mixture; heat through. Remove from heat; sprinkle with cheese. Divide among six plates and garnish with the reserved tortilla strips.

Smart Swap

You can skip baking tortillas and simply use store-bought tortilla chips.

DELICIOUS, and so very easy! We both loved it. BUT---I modified it. To save calories I left out the chicken broth so it wouldn't get soupy & didn't mix in any chips (I used store bought tortilla chips), just crunched up some to put on top.
