sharla's tortilla soup

My sister-in-law, Sharla, makes this when Chef D's family gets together for the holidays.  So easy, yet so delicious!

2 Chicken breasts (frozen in bag works fine, too)
2 large boxes chicken broth
2 Carrots, chopped
1 Onion, chopped
1 Canned Mexican stewed tomatoes
2 cloves minced or pressed Garlic 
2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped
1-2 avocados, peeled and cubed
1 bunch cilantro, leaves chopped
Paprika, cumin, garlic salt to taste
Asadero or provolone cheese
Tortilla Chips

Cook chicken breasts in the chicken broth until done. Remove chicken. Cut up the chicken into pieces and return to broth. Add chopped carrot, onion, garlic, jalapenos, cilantro, tomatoes (cut up), paprika, cumin and garlic salt and cook until carrots are done. Add avocados at the end. Place a slice of the cheese on the bottom of the bowl. Ladle in soup and then top with crumbled tortilla chips.
