      Default Applebee's Cheese Chicken Tortilla Soup

      1 medium yellow onion, chopped (1 cup)
      2 teaspoons fresh garlic, minced
      2 tablespoons vegetable oil
      4 cups chicken stock
      1/4 cup chopped green pepper (optional)
      1 (15 ounce) can tomato puree
      1 tablespoon finely minced jalapeño pepper (optional)
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1/4 teaspoon pepper (optional)
      1 teaspoon granulated sugar
      1 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
      1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
      1/2 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)
      4 tablespoons flour
      1/2 cup water
      1 pound cooked chicken, cubed or pulled
      1 cup cream
      1/4 cup non-fat sour cream
      8 ounces processed cheese, 1-inch cubes
      10 (6-inch) colored or yellow corn tortillas, 1/4-inch strips, fried
      Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped (optional)

      Sauté oil, garlic and onions in large pan or Dutch oven until soft.

      Add numbers 4 through 13. Bring to low boil, then reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.

      Cut tortillas into 1/4-inch strips and fry in oil or spray with oil and bake at 400 degrees F (while soup is cooking). Sprinkle with salt if desired.

      Thoroughly mix flour and water, then whisk into soup. Bring to a low boil, then simmer 5 minutes.

      Add chicken and simmer 5 minutes.

      Stir in sour cream and cheese (more or less of each, depending on taste). Ensure 165 degrees F serving temperature.

      After serving soup, pile tortilla strips into a "haystack" shape on top of the soup.

      Optional: garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.

      Yield: Six to eight portions
