Chicken Tortilla Soup

I haven't posted a recipe in months!  I feel like such a slacker.  But I've made a goal to do better so here's hoping I stick to it!  We were in Arizona for a few weeks and loved every second of it!  It was warm and sunny everyday!  Now we are back in Albany and it feels like winter.  Not really, but close.  Also, I came home to a kitchen with new counter tops, sink and painted walls.  Yep, my husband surprised me and I couldn't be happier about it!  I walk into my kitchen and just smile because I love it so much.
Anyways, about the recipe.  I make tortilla soup a lot and planned to make it yesterday.  I didn't have all the ingredients for the recipe I usually use so I did some googling and came up with this one.  It was easy and tasted so good!  

Chicken Tortilla Soup

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 32oz box low sodium chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can corn
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can green chiles (optional)
1/2 onion, chopped
3 Tbs. tomato paste
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 to 4 corn tortillas, cut into small strips

Put all ingredients, except tortilla strips, in crockpot.  Cook on low all day or high for 4 to 6 hours.  When chicken is done, take out of crockpot and shred.  Add back into soup.  Add tortilla strips 30 minutes before serving.  Serve with grated cheese, sour cream and chips.
