  1. For Crispy Tortilla Strips: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut 3 (12-inch) flour tortillas into 3/8-inch strips; cut strips into 2 inch pieces and toss with 1 tablespoon oil. Spread out on rimmed baking sheet; bake until crisp, about 7 minutes, tossing occasionally. Yields 8 servings (about 3 cups).
  2. In large saucepan, heat oil. Add sweet potatoes, celery, onion, garlic and cumin; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Add broth, chicken and tomatillos; bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Just before ready to serve, stir in 1 cup of the tortilla strips along with the Avocado and cilantro. Season with pepper, if desired.
  4. Serve in bowls topped with remaining 2 cups tortilla strips and sour cream, if desired.

I had to re-review this. The more I eat it, the more I love it! I always add black beans to this, as per our taste. Great recipe, thanks!

We liked it; it was different. I tend to like a thicker stew, but it was a unique change of pace. Never had tomatillos before!

I followed this recipe exactly and it was WONDERFUL!! My husband loved even more than me... he asked me to keep it in the rotation :). It's uniquely flavorful and more than enough for a meal. ...

I was a bit skeptical at first, but I had all of the ingredients on hand (minus the tomatillos) so I went for it. It was delicious! The whole family loved it.

This soup was SO GOOD. We had it as our meal tonight and used leftovers from a whole chicken we cooked last week, instead of chicken breast. I have never cooked with some of these items before...
