It’s well worth the effort to find a dried chipotle, which gives the broth a wonderful smoky spice. To make fried tortilla strips, cut corn or flour tortillas into long strips and fry in 350°F oil until they start to brown, about 2 minutes.

Very good and I would make it again as a nice substitute to chili. Like others, I used a can of chipotles in adobo in place of the dried chilies and I used 1 whole boneless skinless breast instead of thighs. After browning the breast, I shredded it in the food processor. I'm trying the Mediterranean diet so I removed the bacon. We never missed it and given the recipe's richness, I think I would have preferred it without. I tried substituting low fat Greek yogurt for the sour cream, and thought it was actually better than the sour cream my husband used. The sour cream was richer, but the yogurt added a slight tartness that complimented the smoky, spicy dish. I live in a warm climate and eat a lot of spicy foods. The spice level was good for me, but the chipotles in adobo might be very spicy for some folks. If you are unsure, use half the can. I also used just 1cup of broth because I liked the thicker consistency. And I served it with the yougurt or sour cream and a scoop of pico de gallo. I made cole slaw with salsa-yogurt sauce as a side dish, and the crisp, cold, creamy slaw was a great pairing.
I saw this recipe in our local newspaper and printed out a couple of weeks ago. Finally made it last night using boneless skinless chicken thighs and canned chipotle in adobo sauce in place of the bone-in skinless thighs and a dried chipotle and it was delicious. I shared it with my neighbors and they raved about it and can't wait for me to make it again. Great cold weather food.
This was delicious! I followed the other reviewers' suggestions: added a can of beans and minced a few chipotle chiles from a can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce in place of the dried chile. I also used boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into strips in place of the whole thighs, and it worked well. I think that I'll try using chicken breasts next time to make the recipe even healthier, although the thighs were tasty.
Great smoky flavor. If I'd been alone, I might have licked my bowl! In our small town, dried chipotle are a far-a-way dream...so I added a finely minced chipotle in adobo sauce. As suggested by other reviewers, I did add the second can of black beans. The only thing I might change next time, adding a couple more chicken thighs; the amount of "sauce" could support them.
