Tortilla Soup

I just got a copy of this recipe from my friend Mckell, who knows that I LOVE a good tortilla soup...and well, food in general :-). After she told me about how it had a different flavor than the typical tortilla soup recipe thanks to the worchestershire sauce I was excited to give it a try myself. It is really, really good! Ella told me it is her favorite tortilla soup and Mike gave it his thumbs up too. I'm excited to have a new variation to work into my soup rotation :-)!

1 lg onion, chopped
1 jalapeno (roasted in 375 degree oven for 15 min and then chopped)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T oil
2 lbs diced cooked chicken (I used 2-12 oz cans chicken)
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
5 oz Rotel tomatoes and green chiles (this is 1/2 a can)
1 can beef broth
1 can chicken broth
1 can tomato soup
1 1/2 cans water (tomato soup can)
1 can tomato sauce (little can)
1 t ground cumin
1 t chili powder
1 t salt
1/2 t lemon pepper
2 t worchestershire sauce
1/2-1 t Tabasco
toppings: crushed tortilla chips/tortilla strips, grated cheese, sour cream, avocado, etc.

-Saute first 5 ingredients in large pan
-Add remaining ingredients. Simmer for 1 hour.
-Top as desired.

I love tortilla soup! Never tried Worcestershire in it, though. Sure does look good!
