Tortilla Soup with Grilled Chicken

Every spoonful of this zesty and satisfying soup is full of hearty chunks of vegetables and chicken.

Ingredients
Cooking spray
2 6-inch corn tortillas, cut in half, then into 1/4-inch strips
2 cups fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
2 cups water
1 8-ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
6 ounces cubed grilled skinless chicken breasts, cooked without salt, all visible fat discarded
1 small yellow summer squash (about 4 ounces), diced
1 small zucchini (about 4 ounces), diced
1/2 cup frozen whole-kernel corn
1 teaspoon salt-free all-purpose seasoning blend
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shredded low-fat Cheddar cheese

Cooking Instructions
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the tortilla strips in a single layer on the baking sheet. Lightly spray with cooking spray.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until crisp.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring the remaining ingredients except the Cheddar to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes. Serve sprinkled with the tortilla strips and Cheddar.
