    1. Spray or oil pan. Turn heat on medium-high. Add onions, peppers, corn, & beans. Cook till tender. Add garlic & stir for a few minutes longer. Turn off heat & let sit.
    2. In big pot, add chicken, cream of chicken soup & diced tomatoes (not drained). Squeeze that lime juice on in the pot, too.
    3. Add all veggies from pan to pot. Stir well.
    4. Slice tortillas into 1”x1” squares, then add to pot. If you like, you may also slice other tortillas into fine strips, sprinkle with paprika & toast on pan in oven….these look oh-so-nice when served on hot bowl of soup.
    5. Add cumin. Add more cumin. Little bit of salt & lots of pepper. Gotta love that lemon pepper, too. Add paprika for a little spice.
    6. Allow to boil, then turn down & let sit..
    7. Serve soup with dollop of sour cream, grated Jack cheese….and perhaps even toasted tortilla strips, if you like!
