Instead of pretzels, try topping this cheddar cheese soup with crushed corn tortilla chips.

This soup will help put a little meat on your bones. We wanted to know what would happen if we replicated the awesomeness that is cheese fondue, but as a soup. This is what we got.

We topped our soup with crumbled pretzels because we like the contrast between the rich and creamy soup and the salty, crunchy pretzels. But croutons especially homemade and just lightly crunchy also would be a delicious way to top this soup.
