  1. Place tomatoes, jalapeno pepper and garlic in a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth.
  2. Heat oil in a large saute pan. Add 1/2 cup of the onions, saute until golden brown. Add tomato puree; cook until reduced to a thick paste (like tomato paste, about 8-10 minutes).
  3. Add beans and stock; bring to a simmer 1-2 minutes. Add chicken and spinach, stir to wilt. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Add tortilla chips and toss to coat. Once the tortillas have started to wilt, serve with the remaining chopped onions. Garnish with sliced avocado and sour cream, if desired.

I loved this recipe, the first time I made it I used fresh tomatoes and just cooked them down a little longer. I also used blue chips, my family loved this, I have made it once a week since.

I used this as a base to what I had on hand. I ended up boiling down some frozen salsa I made last year, then added the chicken, stock and beans. I didn't have any spinach but can't wait to tr...
