1 1/2 tsp oregano
1 TBSP salt or to taste
2 TBSP garlic powder
1 1/4 tsp sugar
12 corn tortillas

In a small bowl, mix together paprika, cayenne pepper, white pepper, oregano, salt, garlic powder, and sugar. Set aside.
In 4 qt Dutch oven, put a couple of inches of vegetable oil and heat to almost boiling. Cut tortillas into strips 1/2" wide. Fry in batches until golden brown and drain on paper towel.
When oil has cooled a little, remove all but 4 TBSP. Saute scallions, onion, cilantro, and jalapeno until onion is just transparent. Stir in tomatoes and spice mix and simmer 10 min.

Place a layer of tortilla strips in the bottom of the bowl and ladle in soup. Top with shredded cheese and avocado.
