4.  Just before serving, add a handful or so of crushed tortilla chips, broken into bite sized pieces.

5.  Top each individual serving off with a few more tortilla chips and a handful of shredded cheddar cheese.

  1. I just made this last week but I forgot to add the chicken broth. It was more like chili but my husband loved it. Trader Joe’s has the best recipes.
