      Tortilla Soup

      6 cups chicken broth (Swanson is best)
      1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, with juice
      1 cup water
      1 cup canned dark red kidney beans, with liquid
      1 cup frozen yellow cut corn
      1 cup frozen cut green beans
      1 4-ounce can diced green chilies
      1/2 cup diced Spanish onion
      1/2 cup tomato sauce
      6 corn tortillas, minced
      1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
      dash garlic powder

      1 cup grated cheddar/jack cheese blend
      1 cup crumbled corn tortilla chips

      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.

      Bring soup to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 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 cheddar/jack cheese blend over the top of the soup, and then a heaping tablespoon of crumbled corn tortilla chips over the cheese.
