Chicken Tortilla Soup

Maren gave me this recipe a couple years ago and it is definitely one of our favorites. Plus it is seriously quick and easy, the hardest part is waiting 20 minutes for it to simmer.
Ingredients:
-1/2 onion chopped
-1 green bell pepper chopped
-4 cups chicken broth
-2 cans cream of chicken soup
-3 cooked chicken breasts shredded
-1/2 cup medium picante sauce
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1/2 tsp. pepper
-1/2 tsp. chili powder or chili pepper
Directions:
Put a little butter in the bottom of your sauce pan and sauté the onion and pepper until soft. Then add everything else and simmer 20 minutes.
Crush tortilla chips in the bottom of a bowl. Pour soup over the chips and grated cheese (sour cream is optional). Makes 4-6 bowls of soup
