Monterey Jack Cheese Soup

It is March 6th and it is snowing…it’s a soup day.  This is so easy, plus I usually have all the ingredients on hand.  Grab some bread and have a bowl of warm cheesy soup!

1 cup chicken broth
1 can petite diced tomatoes, drained
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 small can chopped green chilies
4 Tbl butter
4 Tbl flour
salt & pepper to taste
2½ cups milk
2-3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

In small saucepan, combine broth, tomato, onion, and chilies, bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

In soup pot, melt butter and stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth.  Gradually stir in milk.  Bring to boil, cook and stir for about 1 minute or until thickened.  Slowly pour in vegetable mixture.  Reduce heat to low, stir in cheese.  Cook and stir over low heat until cheese is melted.  Ready to serve.
