   In a large saucepan, heat oil and butter.  Add garlic
   and onions; saute until softened.  Add squash, chiles
   and tomatillos, stirring until coated and heated
   through.  Add chicken broth; bring to a boil, then
   cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until squash
   is tender. Tear or shred tortillas into pieces and add
   to soup mixture.  Stir in lime juice and cilantro
   leaves.
   
   In a blender or food processor, blend soup in batches
   until pureed and smooth.  Return to saucepan and heat
   through.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
   
   Serve hot accompanied with a dollop of sour cream and
   a few crumbled tortilla chips and cilantro leaves.
   This is a thick soup; if you prefer it thinner, add
   more chicken broth.
