Season with the salt, pepper, dried oregano, cumin and chipotle pepper. Stir to combine and cook for 1-2 minutes until the spices toast. Add the fire roasted tomatoes and the turkey stock and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and simmer for 30 minutes.

    To make the tortilla strips: In a small skillet, heat about 1/4 cup of vegetable oil over medium high heat. Once hot, add the Old El Paso™ tortilla strips in a single layer, frying quickly for about 30-45 seconds, flipping them once to ensure both sides get crisp. Remove the tortillas once crisp with a pair of tongs and transfer them to a paper towel lined plate to dry.
