Instructions

1. Place the cubed chicken in a bowl and sprinkle with the fajitas seasoning, chili powder, and salt. Mix well.

2. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned cubed chicken and cook until browned on all sides. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes, until fragrant and slightly softened. Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, and green chilies. Bring to a simmer, cover, and allow the soup to simmer for 20-25 minutes.

3. Add the red and green peppers along with the lime juice. Simmer just long enough for the peppers to soften, 6-8 minutes. Season with salt to taste, and serve with cilantro, avocado, and crushed Siete No Salt Tortilla Chips.
