It’s Taco Tuesday? How about Spicy Chicken Tortilla soup? Close enough! joanlunden came out with her cookbook in 1996, filled with delicious low-fat recipes, and this has been in our rotation ever since. The combination of all the flavors is perfect and I have no idea what fat is missing because this feels indulgent! Ole! 💃🏻. copycatchef_ct 👩🏻‍🍳. INGREDIENTS

4 cups Chicken Broth or canned reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 cup water
1 pound skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into small cubes
1/3 cup nonfat or low fat sour cream Salt and pepper to taste

In a large saucepan, cook the onion and the garlic in the oil over moderately low heat for 5 minutes or until the onion is softened. Add the chilies, tomatoes with their juice, broth, lemon pepper, Worcestershire, spices, and hot sauce and simmer the mixture for 20 minutes.
