Mexicalli Cheese Soup

Sometimes there’s just nothing better than a really good bowl of soup. But, let’s face it, soup takes a lot of preparation, which means time that most of us don’t have to spare. Fischer & Wieser has the solution with this quick and easy, but mighty tasty soup using Fischer & Wieser Chipotle & Corn Salsa.

Prep Time:  5 minutes
Cook Time:  20 minutes

  • 1 quart chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons chile powder
  • 1 pound pasteurized process cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar Fischer & Wieser Chipotle & Corn Salsa
  • salt to taste
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons cold water
  • Minced cilantro as garnish

Combine chicken broth, chile powder and pasteurized process cheese in a heavy 6-quart soup pot over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cheese has melted, about 15 minutes. Add the Fischer & Wieser Chipotle & Corn Salsa and bring to a boil. Add the cornstarch mixture and cook just until soup thickens slightly. Remove from heat and add salt to taste. Serve hot, garnished with minced cilantro. Serves 6 to 8 first courses.

Hint:  For a more hearty soup, add leftover cooked chicken or turkey cubes before adding cornstarch mixture and allow to heat through about 5 minutes.
