Instructions

Two tablespoons of olive oil should be heated in a big pot over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, and cilantro, and sauté them until they achieve a fragrant effect. Continue stirring after adding the chicken broth, tomatoes, beans, corn, chiles and lime juice. The chicken breasts should be added after the remaining spices have been added. Bring the water to a boil.

When it reaches a boil, reduce the heat and let it simmer for ten minutes. Take the chicken breasts out of the broth and allow them to rest for ten minutes before shredding them with a fork. You should throw the shredded chicken back into the broth and continue to boil it for another ten minutes. Chips made from tortillas:

Corn tortillas should be sliced into thin pieces. For a crispier texture, we prefer them to be quite thin.
Coat with salt and olive oil, then toss to combine. Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately ten to twelve minutes, or until the browning is golden. For the slow cooker, put all of the ingredients in the slow cooker and cook them on low for five to six hours. Use a fork to shred the chicken, then return it to the slow cooker so that it may be served.
