Pre-heat a large skillet; carefully add the oil. Sauté the onions, bell peppers, jalapeño, poblano, and corn until soft; about 8 minutes. Add the minced garlic, tomatoes, and green chilis and cook for additional 5 minutes. Next add rinsed black beans, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Stir all the ingredients to combine. Pour in the chicken broth and water; add the diced chicken and tortilla strips now. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, finish with fresh lime juice. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Serve with fresh avocado, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips if desired.
