  • 1 (11 ounce) can whole kernel corn with sweet peppers, drained
  • 1 cup chunky garden-style salsa
  • 3 cups broken baked or fried corn tortilla chips
  • 2 ounces Monterey jack cheese with jalapeno peppers, shredded

  3. Stir in salsa; heat through.
  4. To serve, ladle soup into bowls. Top with chips and sprinkle with cheese.
