  • Summary

    This weeknight-friendly soup is enriched by the flavor of smoky chipotles, brightened by fresh lime, and ready in just 22 minutes or less. Crisp bean and cheese nachos garnish each bowl instead of the traditional fried tortilla strips in a fun ode to cheese toast–topped French Onion Soup. If you prefer things on the milder side, feel free to reduce or omit the chiles.

    Ingredients

    • 4 (6") corn tortillas, divided
    • 2 tablespoons neutral vegetable oil, such as grapeseed, plus more for brushing
    • 1/4 cup canned refried beans
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin, plus more for dusting
    • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (about 2.5 ounces)
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 2 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    • 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes, preferably fire-roasted
    • 1 teaspoon finely chopped canned chipotle chiles, plus 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more
    • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut crosswise into 1/2"-thick strips, strips cut in half lengthwise if large
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from about 1 1/2–2 limes), plus 1 lime, cut into wedges
    • Sliced avocado, sliced radish, and cilantro leaves with tender stems (for serving; optional)
