1 rotisserie chicken, diced up with skin removed

For Garnish:
Crumbled tortilla chips

Place a stockpot over medium heat and coat with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the onions, garlic, anaheims & jalapenos, and tomatoes; Season with salt/pepper & seasonings. Cook, stirring for 20 minutes until the vegetables are cooked down and pulpy. Pour in the stock, add chicken and simmer for 20 minutes.

Ladle the hot soup into 4 soup bowls. Top with cheese, dollop of sour cream, the diced avocado and tortilla chips. Serve with lime wedges.
