Jalapeno Cheese Soup

Don't let the "j" word scare you! The pepper can be adjusted to your taste. This is a rich and wonderful soup.

1/2 lb butter
3/4 c. flour
1 large onion, chopped
1 qt. chicken broth
1 qt half and half
*1 c. jalapenos, processed in food processor
2 1/2 lb. American or Velveeta cheese
1/2 T lemon pepper
1/2 T. Lawry's Seasoned Salt
2 c. chicken, cooked and chopped

Saute onions in butter with Lawry's and lemon pepper. Add flour and make a roux. Add cream and broth and stir until thickened. Add jalapenos and cheese. Stir until dissolved. Add chicken. Garnish with tortilla chip in center of cup. * I like to use jalapenos from a jar, but you could use fresh. I imagine they would be much more spicy so be careful! If you don't want it very spicy, then add less peppers. Ole!
