How to Make Cheesy Tortilla Soup with Fried Tortilla Strips

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine all ingredients except for the velveeta cheese, monterey jack cheese and the fried tortilla strips in a crock pot. I used a 4 quart crock pot for this recipe.
  2. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.
  3. Stir in cubed velveeta that last 20 minutes of cooking time.
  4. Cut tortilla's into strips; fry in vegetable oil over medium high heat until a light golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  5. Once velveeta has melted; spoon soup into bowls. Garnish with monterey jack cheese and fried tortilla strips.
  6. NOTES:

    You can season tortilla strips with favorite seasoning, salt or leave plain.

    If you like a spicer soup, add the "hot" rotel or add a diced jalapeno or do both.
