HEAT the olive oil in a large Dutch oven or stock pot, over medium heat.
ADD the onion and cook until softened, 8-10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Add the enchilada sauce, chicken broth, tomatoes, chili powder and cumin and season with salt and pepper.
BRING to a boil over high heat.
ADD the chicken, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and easy to shred.
REMOVE the chicken to a plate and shred with two forks, then return to the pot with the tortellini and black beans. Simmer for 7 minutes, until the tortellini is al dente.
STIR in the corn, cheese and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
SERVE with toppings, as desired.
Best version of chicken tortilla soup I’ve ever made. Will be making this again.
