Original recipe makes 8



*Original called for 1/2 cup oil. **Original called for 1 tsp chili powder In large pot, place oil, chicken base, onion, chiles, and spices. Saute until onions are soft and clear, about 5 minutes. In another container, combine masa harina with 2 cups water. Stir until all lumps dissolve. Add to sauteed onions, bring to boil. Once mixture starts to bubble, continue cooking 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. This will eliminate any raw taste from masa harina. Add remaining 6 cups water to pot. Add tomatoes; let mixture return to boil stirring occasionally. Add cheese to soup. Cook stirring occasionally, until cheese melts. Add chicken; heat through.
