Mexican Velveeta and green chilies add a kick to this satisfying soup sent in by Sybil Brown of Highland, California. The recipe calls for a number of canned goods, so it's simple to stir up, simmer and serve.

"This was pretty tasty. I liked how quick it was to make. I used 1/4 cup cornstarch in place of the the flour to make it gluten-free. I used regular Velveeta and thought it was spicy enough."
