Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients except chips into a large crock pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours. (For a quick meal, cook on stove over med-high heat until cheese is melted).
  2. Add crushed chips about 10 minutes before serving. (They help thicken the soup and add a great flavor!) Garnish with grated cheddar cheese and additional fresh cilantro. A dollop of sour cream is yummy too!).
  3. Cooks notes: I use a 2 1/2 lb. bag of frozen chicken tenders, browned and cut into bite sized pieces. Also, do NOT add salt to the soup. There is plenty of salt in the chips and cheese. You can also use 1 bag of cooked dry beans instead of the canned beans.
  4. * The "Monterey jack pepper cheese" is usually called "Pepper Jack Cheese" in most markets.
