6 TBSP flour
1/2 c salsa, your choice of mild or hot

4 cups heavy cream (or half-and-half or evaporated milk)
4 TBSP fresh cilantro, chopped (or 4 tsp dried cilantro)

In a large pot, saute onions, carrots, celery, and garlic in butter and olive oil for 4 min. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 min. Add salsa, green chiles, chicken broth, tomatoes, and corn. Cook while stirring, for about 5 min. Reduce heat to simmer and add chicken, cream, and cilantro. When mixture returns to a simmer, remove pan from heat and add cheese, stirring until cheese is melted.
