  1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, combine the ground beef and onions and saute for 5 minutes, or until beef is browned. Drain excess fat and set meat aside.
  2. In a large pot over high heat, combine the broth, tomatoes, cumin and garlic. Add the cayenne pepper, chili powder and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium low.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch with the water, stirring well until the cornstarch is dissolved. Add slowly to the soup, stirring constantly, to thicken.
  4. Add the reserved meat, corn and cheese to the soup and stir well. Finally, add the tortilla strips and allow to heat through.

This soup is fantastic!! The only changes I made was to use a whole pound of ground beef and I added a can of green chilis. If you wanted it hotter you could use Rotel tomatoes instead of the crushed. Will make over and over again! My whole family scarfed it up!



This one will get rave reviews from all ages. It's a hardy soup that my family found addicting! I used flour tortillas in place of chips. Very good!
