cheesy chicken tortilla soup

We love most any kind of hot soup or stew on a cold winter day. One day I forgot to pull out something for dinner and this happy accident was the result of a trip to Big Lots to find things I could use to turn 3 cans of chunk chicken and a bag of frozen vegetables into a meal. Apparently with $5, a jar of salsa con queso, and a bag of tortilla soup mix, you can turn all that into what my daughter calls "liquid taco."
