Mexican Cheese Soup

Mexican Cheese Soup



When I first came across the recipe for this Mexican Cheese Soup, I knew it had potential, but I had to make changes to it several times before I felt like it was good enough to share with you.  It wasn’t until I switched out the cheddar cheese for Velveeta cheese, that I finally got the result that I wanted.  The regular cheddar cheese wouldn’t combine with the butter so that the consistency of the soup just wasn’t quite right.  I don’t use Velveeta cheese very often, but when you need cheese to be smooth and creamy after it’s melted, sometimes Velveeta is the way to go.

Since this is a Mexican soup, it’s made with tomatoes and onions and garlic and chilies.  And cilantro, too, but the cilantro didn’t make it into this picture because it didn’t want to cooperate during the photo shoot.  Cilantro is like that sometimes.

The tomatoes that go into this soup will need to be peeled before you chop them.  The best way to do that is to boil them for about one minute and then run them under cold water.  The peels should come off easily.

If you like Mexican food as much as I do, you’ll want to give this soup a try.  It’s delicious!

  1. This looks very tasty. I was wondering though if you tried using a broth or stock instead of the milk when experimenting? I might play with that soon and see if it is worthy! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Connie, I don’t remember using broth with this recipe, but I can’t say for sure. I know I made a lot of changes, but the cheese was the main problem that I was trying to fix. I would think that broth would work fine. It will just result in a slightly thinner soup.

  3. This looks really yummy. Do you think a couple of cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies would work in this, rather than using the tomatoes and the canned green chilies? Just trying to think of a possible time saver. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us all!

  4. Kathy, yes I do think that would work. I hope you enjoy it!

  5. Would this be considered low carb?

  6. Susan, I’ve never thought about this as being low carb, but I just looked at the ingredient list again, and it does seem to be low carb.

  7. A perfect blend of delicious ingredients creates a fantastic soup you’ll be sure to appreciate on the colder days.
