- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Mix cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and salt. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over chicken breasts, then sprinkle a small amount of spice mix on both sides. Set the remaining spice mix aside.

- Heat remaining olive oil in a pot over medium high heat. Add onions, bell peppers, and garlic. Begin cooking then stir in the rest of the spice mix and the shredded chicken.

- Mix cornmeal with a small amount of water. Pour into the soup, then simmer for an additional 30 minutes. Check seasonings, adding more as needed/desired.
- Cut tortillas into thin strips, 2-3 inches long. Gently stir them into the soup about 5 minutes before serving.
- Ladle soup into bowls, then top with sour cream, diced red onion, diced avocado, salsa, and shredded cheese as desired. (The garnishes really help make this soup delicious!)
