1 large onion
1 large can stewed tomatoes drained

1. Peel and cut potatoes, put in pan and cover with water
2. Add salt, pepper, garlic salt, 1/8 tsp oregano and 3 tbsp chopped cilantro leaves
3. Cook potatoes until tender, don't drain water
4. In frying pan melt 1/2 cup butter, add diced onions, drained tomatoes and green chili's - Saute until soft
5. Add to soup onion, tomatoes, green chili mixture
6. simmer 20 minutes
7. Turn off heat and add 1/2 lb cheese cut in chunks until melted
