Taco Soup With Home Made Tortilla Strips

This is the dish I make when I don't have time to make dinner...or I don't know what else to make.  It is a delicious comfort food and I always have the ingredients on hand.  My kids love taco soup.  I do too because it has very little fat (sans tortilla strips).  This recipe makes a ton so I usually pack some up and give it to my neighbor, or I freeze it for another day.  Coincidentally, This recipe was given to  me by
 Amber Tamblyn's cousin when I was living in Dallas.  De-lish.  Try it sometime.  
I guarantee you'll like it.  

Combine corn, tomatoes, taco seasoning, black beans and kidney beans.  Let simmer on medium until flavors are infused. While cooking, make your tortilla strips.
Take 2 corn tortillas and cut into strips with pizza cutter.  We like semi-thick strips.
Place in heated vegetable oil for 1-2 minutes until stiff and crispy. 
Place on paper towel to drain.
Then, take a rotisserie chicken (any flavor) from your favorite grocery store and cut off 1-2 cups meat.  Cut into cubes and add to the soup.  
Mmmmm it smells so good.  Stir in the chicken and let simmer for a few minutes. 
Layer soup with cheese, tortilla strips, avocado and sour cream.  My husband likes his with fresh tomatoes too.  Buen Provecho!
