Amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup

Points +- 5

2 tsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium jalapeno pepper,chopped (I used green chiles instead)
1/2 medium green pepper
4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups frozen corn
1/2 c dry white wine or water
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
4 (14oz) cans chicken broth
2 (14oz) cans diced tomatoes (I used the kind with garlic and onion in them)
2 (8oz) cans tomato sauce

1 cup non fat tortilla chips (optional)
Light sour cream (optional)

1.  Saute onion, garlic, jalapeno and green pepper with olive oil in a large pot until soft.
2. Add all the rest of the ingredients to the large pot and bring to a boil.
3.  After about 15 minutes, remove chicken breast and shred.  (I just used shredded chicken that I already had.)
4. Return shredded chicken to the pot and simmer an additional 45 minutes
5.  Serve, topped with crushed tortilla strips and sour cream if desired.
