Spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup

We prefer to fry our corn tortillas in butter as opposed to the tortilla strips mentioned in this recipe. In my opinion, nothing brings out the flavor of tortillas more than warming them in a skillet in some butter.

  • 1 medium Onion
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tablespoon Vegetable oil
  • 1 4-oz Chopped green chilis
  • 1 15-oz can Mexican style stewed tomatoes
  • 4 cups Chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon pepper
  • 2 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hot pepper sauce
  • 4 tablespoon Flour
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 pound Boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/3 cup Low fat sour cream

  1. In a large saucepan, cook the onion and the garlic in the oil until the onion is softened.
  2. Add the chilies, tomatoes with their juice, broth, lemon pepper, Worcestershire, chili powder, cumin, pepper sauce, chicken, and cilantro.
  3. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the flour with the water and whisk it to mix well.
  5. Stir the flour mixture into the soup and bring it back to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
