Our favorite soup

My sister-in-law made this for us years ago and ever since then its been a family favorite. Last time my brother-in-law came to FL to visit, one of my boys said "Mom, you have to make tortilla soup! We always it eat when our family is together." I guess it has become a tradition.
~But even if we don't have company, I always double this recipe because if I didn't my gang would be mighty sad. Enjoy! If you make it, call us and we'll come over and help you eat it! ; )

Tortilla Soup

1 med. onion chopped
1 jalapeno pepper seeded and diced
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 lbs. beef chuck cut into small cubes
3 T. oil
28 oz. can of Mexican Tomatoes with chilies (Rotel)
1 can beef broth
1 can condensed tomato soup
1 can chicken broth
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
1-3 t. Tabasco sauce
1 T. ground cumin
1 T. chili powder
1 T. salt
1/4 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
6 corn tortillas cut into 1 inch squares
grated cheese

Cook onion, jalapeno, garlic and beef cubes in oil. Add tomato soup, both broths, tomatoes and one and a half cans of water. Add all seasonings. Bring to a boil. Then simmer uncovered for 50 minutes. Then add the tortillas and cook for 10 more minutes. Serve with grated cheese. (we also like it with sour cream).
