Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup:
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic
1/2 med green pepper
2 T oil
15 oz tomato puree (I use the chili ready tomatoes)
4 c chicken broth (or I substitute water and bouillon)
1 T Jalepenos (I usually omit this because I never have them on hand)
1 t worcherstershire sauce
1 t sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t chili pwdr
1/4 t pepper
1/4 c flour
1 lb chicken (cooked and cubed)
1 c milk
1/4 c sour cream
8 oz Velveeta
3-4 tortillas

1. Saute onion, garlic, gr pepper and oil.

2. Add tomato, chicken broth, jalepenos, worchestershire sauce, sugar, chicken, and other seasonings.  Bring to a boil. 

3. While soup is cooking, but tortillas into small bite size strips and lay on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes on 350, or until they start to brown and are crispy.  Once finished, put them in a bowl and set them aside. 

4. Mix flour and milk well and slowly add to soup. Stir frequently to avoid scorching.

5. Slowly add the Velveeta. Continue stirring. Once cheese is melted, add sour cream and serve immediately 
with tortilla pieces used as topping for individual servings.
