While soup is simmering, cut tortillas into 1/2" strips. Lay on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Spray strips lightly with cooking spray. Bake for 5 minutes or until lightly browned. To serve, ladle soup into bowls and top each with grated cheese and tortilla strips.

Helpful Tips:

This recipe doubles easily. Always a hit at our office potlucks. Fresh roasted or frozen chopped green chilies are fabulous, if available. Sometimes I like to add 1 cup of diced zuchini and/or 1 cup of corn. Delicious! Serve with a salad and crusty bread for a simple and complete meal that can be on the table in no time. For a reduced fat version, use reduced fat/sodium condensed cream of chicken soup and reduced fat milk and cheddar. It is still creamy and delicious and enjoyed by all! This recipe is always a hit and so simple to make.
