1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. hot-pepper sauce
2 tsp. olive oil
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 " pieces
1 med. onion, chopped
1-2 jalapeņo chile peppers chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
2 cans (14 2/3 oz each) reduced sodium chicken broth
1/4 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. water
1/3 c. fat free sour cream
1/3 c. chopped cilantro
4 oz. reduced fat tortilla chips, crushed

1. In a food processor or blender, combine tomatoes (with juice), chili powder, cumin, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and hot-pepper sauce. Process to smooth, thick consistency and set aside.
2. Warm oil in large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, cook chicken, onion, jalapeņo pepper and garlic, stirring frequently, 5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and onion is softened. Reduce heat to low, add tomato mixture and broth, and simmer uncovered, 15 minutes.
