Rebecka's Tortilla Soup

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 small onion chopped
1 Serrano chili pepper chopped
2 cups chicken breast diced
2 heaping tablespoons fresh roasted green chilies

In a large stock pot use 2 tablespoons vegetable oil to saute onion and bell pepper, cook on medium  high heat until skin on peppers is seared, about 5-8 minutes;  reduce to medium heat and remove onions and peppers, set aside, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to the same stock pot, salt and pepper chicken breast and cook for 5 minutes making sure to sear all sides of meat, add garlic, Serrano pepper and greens chilies to chicken and cook for additional 5 minutes.  Add next 10 ingredients and simmer for 1-2 hours, stirring frequently.  Just before serving add 1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips and cook for 5 minutes to thicken soup.  Serve with cheddar cheese and a large bowl of tortilla chips.  Sprinkle the  top with Queso Fresco, add a few cilantro leaves and a squeeze of lime juice.  For a heartier meal, serve soup with soft tortillas and a big pitcher of margaritas.
