Nancy's Chicken Tortilla Soup

soups

1 medium onion chopped
2 stalks celery chopped
1 carrot; chopped
2-3 garlic cloves minced (more works too)
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 4 oz can green chiles
1 15oz can italian herbed tomatoes chopped; with juice
4 cups chicken stock; 4 -6 cups
1 tsp lemon pepper (use a strong brand that has no salt added)
2 tsp worchester sauce
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin powder
1/2 tsp hot sauce (to taste)
1/2 cup water
4 tbsp flour* (you could change this... I don't even use it)
1 lb chicken parts skinned and de-boned; I use thighs or Italian sausage)
1/3 cup sour cream; see note

In a heavy large dutch oven over medium heat soften the onion carrot and
celery in the oil. Add the minced garlic and cook about one more minute.
Add the green chiles and the chopped tomatoes, then add the chicken stock
and the seasoning. Simmer for about 10 minutes.

*In a small bowl stir together the flour and water then add to soup. Simmer
5 minutes more. Used as a thickener; possible subs guar gum etc... Not
truly necessary.

Add the chopped chicken meat. Simmer till meat is just cooked. Approx 15
minutes

stir in the sour cream and serve.


Note if you are going to freeze parts of this don't add the sour cream till
ready to serve. Sour cream doesn't freeze well.

alone with a side salad it is good.
