Directions:
 
In a large soup pot place onions and a small amount of broth, sprinkle with salt.  Cook until onions are translucent for approximately 5 minutes.  Next add garlic and jalapeño if using and cook an additional 2 minutes making sure to keep slightly moist so that they don’t burn.  Next add beans, broth, cumin and oregano.  Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes.  Then on low heat add chopped greens, cilantro, lemon juice, milk, salt and pepper to taste.  Leave on low heat un-covered for an additional 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and serve with homemade crispy tortilla strips, chopped cilantro and avocado pieces.
 
Homemade tortilla strips:  Use corn tortillas, heat oven to 350 degrees.  Cut the tortialla strips into 1inch by 2 inch strips. Place on parchment paper on baking sheet.  Sprinkle generously with salt.  Place in oven mixing and turning to evenly cook every 10 minutes until crisp and delicious.
