    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
