- Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, add the onions and sauté, stirring frequently, until they are translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Then add the garlic and jalapeno and sauté for another 2 minutes before adding the cumin and oregano and stirring to coat.
- Pour the broth into the pot along with the tomatoes and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook on low for 10 minutes, then add the juice of one lime and stir to incorporate.
- Just before serving, ladle soup into bowls and top each with avocado, some chopped cilantro, and tortilla strips. Serve hot with additional lime wedges.
