Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup

4 chicken breasts
5 c. chicken broth
1 c. chopped onion
1 c. chopped carrots
1 tsp. minced garlic
2 c. frozen corn
1 can diced green chiles
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro 
4-5 (6 inch) whole wheat flour tortillas (Don Julio's are my favorite), cut into small strips 

Bring broth and chicken to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove chicken and use two forks to shred. To broth add onion, garlic and carrots. Simmer 10 minutes. Return chicken to broth and add all other ingredients besides the cilantro and tortillas. Cook 15 minutes. Add tortillas and cilantro- cook 5 more minutes and serve. 

optional garnishes: avocado (a must for me), olive slices, extra cilantro

I had to throw in a plug for Don Julios (even if I didn't know and love your family so much they would still be my favorite)
