Sauté onions and garlic in oil until soft (about 2 minutes)
 
Add cumin and habanero powder, and cook for another 30 seconds, just enough to release the oils from the spices.
 
Add tomatoes and chicken stock (or water), and bring to a simmer. 
 
Add tortillas, stirring to incorporate them, and cook for about 5 minutes.
 
Remove from heat, and using an immersion blender, purée soup.
 
Serve in bowls with choices of toppings.
