This was good and easy especially since I usually have all these ingredients on hand. The big change for me was preparing the soup in a crock pot. I placed all the ingredients in the crock pot and set to LOW. Skipped the canned chilies but served fresh sliced jalapenos on the side. Now that Chilis has discontinued this soup and their vegetarian quesadilla (with the smoked cheese and artichoke hearts, etc.) there's really no reason to go back. Luckily, we have the recipe right here at our virtual back door. Thanks for posting. Reviewed for Best of 2010.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all the soup ingredients in a large saucepan or soup pot over high heat. Be sure to mince the corn tortillas into small pieces with a sharp knife before adding them to the soup.
  2. Bring soup to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour, or until the soup has thickened and tortilla pieces have mostly dissolved.
  3. To serve soup ladle 1 1/2 cups into a bowl. Sprinkle a heaping tablespoon of the grated cheese over the top of the soup and then a heaping tablespoon of crumbled tortilla chips over the cheese.
