Now put the roasted red chilies and bay leaves into the sauce. Pour the navy beans, chickpeas into the sauce and season it with salt and pepper. Bring this to a boil, reduce the heat and let it simmer for about an hour.

4. to prepare the crispy corn tortillas, cut them into 2 inch slices and spread them on a baking sheet. Brush them lightly with little bit of olive oil and sprinkle salt to season. Put the baking sheet into the oven at 400F for 10 minutes.

5. Serve the green chili soup on a large soup plate and sprinkle the crispy tortillas on top of the soup. Squeeze fresh lime juice into the soup, if you like it to be little tangy.
