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.
"This was very good! Easy, low fat and my kids loved it. I added black beans, corn and some extra tomatoes (by accident ) but it turned out delicious. A terrific do ahead option for busy working moms like me. I also toasted the tortillas instead of sauteeing them to reduce the fat content even more. Thanks beachbumette!"- AmandaWW

In a large saucepan, cook the onion and the garlic in the oil until the onion is softened. Add the chilies, tomatoes with their juice, broth, lemon pepper, Worcestershire, chili powder, cumin, pepper sauce, chicken, and cilantro. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. In a small bowl, combine the flour with the water and whisk it to mix well. Stir the flour mixture into the soup and bring it back to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the sour cream, salt, and pepper and garnish each portion with the tortilla strips.
Cut the tortillas into 1/4 inch strips and arrange them in one layer on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake them at 400 for 10 minutes or until they are lightly toasted and crispy. Sprinkle lightly with salt, if desired.

jimleonard 9 months agoGreat version of an old favorite. I used one fresh Anaheim chili and one jalapeño chili diced and sautéed with the onion and garlic in place of the 4 ounce can of chilies, and the flavor was wonderful.

Greencrazed 1 year agoREALLY GOOD!!!! I loved this soup. It was fresh, yet hearty and satisfying . My husband and three kids just gobbled it up too. I added a can of black beans, a can of hominy, and a can of corn to it. I also served it with lime wedges. I WILL be making this again.
