   While chicken simmers, prepare a roux: Melt butter in
   skillet over low-medium heat. Add flour and stir to
   blend. Cook, stirring continuously, 3 to 5 minutes or
   until flour is cooked and is a very light golden color.
   
   Add cream to soup and bring to a rolling boil. Reduce
   heat to low-medium and whisk in cheese. Slowly stir 1
   to 2 cups hot soup into roux. Immediately add back
   into soup, stirring to blend. Soup will thicken
   slightly. Remove from heat and serve with tortilla
   chips.
