Heat 1 Tbs. oil in medium saucepot over medium-high heat. Saute tortilla strips until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels.
Heat remaining 1 Tbs. oil in same saucepot. Cook onion, red bell pepper, chili powder, cumin and kosher salt until just tender, 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add broth, salsa, black beans, diced tomatoes with their juices, corn and green chilies. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10-12 minutes, stirring in chicken during last 2 minutes of cooking time.
Top with tortilla strips, sour cream and cilantro.
* I usually buy the cartons of chicken broth and just pour out the amount I need but if you prefer using canned chicken broth you can easily substitute 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) chicken broth which will give you about 31/2 cups of broth.
