This south-of-the-border twist of chicken soup features the bright flavors of chiles, corn, cilantro, and lime juice. In place of noodles, hominy; in place of crackers, fried tortilla strips. 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.
If you made the chicken broth yourself, use the cooked meat from making the broth; otherwise use the meat from a store-bought rotisserie chicken.

This is amazing. I just use extra corn instead of hominy (because i didn't have any)
I've made this several times and Every ingredient is absolutely necessary... so maybe I'll try it with the hominy next time. :)
My husband says it's the best soup he's ever had in his life.
