Tortilla Strips

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
3 (6-inch) corn tortillas


1 small (1/2 cup) onion, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained, rinsed
1 (10-ounce) can mild enchilada sauce
1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chiles
2 cups chicken broth
3 ounces (3/4 cup) shredded Monterey Jack cheese


Heat oven to 425°F.

Lightly butter both sides of each tortilla with about 1/2 teaspoon butter. Cut each tortilla into 3/8-inch strips. Place onto ungreased baking sheet.

Bake, turning once, 5-8 minutes or until browned and crisp. Remove from oven. Place onto paper towels; set aside.

Melt remaining butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat until sizzling; add onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2-4 minutes or until tender. Stir in all remaining ingredients except cheese and tortilla strips. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 5-6 minutes or until heated through.

Top individual servings with cheese and tortilla strips.

Recipe Tip

-To enhance the flavor of the soup, use a spicy bean dip or a flavored bean dip, such as smoky chipotle.

- Bake extra tortilla strips to use as topping for taco salad or even for snacking. Lightly salt, if desired. Store in resealable plastic food bag.
