Chicken-Tortilla Soup

This recipe matches the goodness of the tortilla soups found in Mexican restaurants. Very flavorful but not too spicy. If you don't want to use wine, you can replace it with an equal amount of low-sodium chicken broth.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 cup soup, 2 tablespoons chips, and 1 tablespoon sour cream)
