    Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir to coat; cook for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the milk, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Cook for a few minutes (to remove the floury taste), until slightly thickened. Stir in the broth and tomatoes and simmer for 15 minutes.

    Gradually stir in the Cheddar a handful at a time, making sure that each addition is melted before adding more. Whisk in the dip and chicken, and cook over low heat, stirring often (do not allow soup to boil or the dip may curdle). Finish with the ½ cup cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Serve with chips, scallions, and additional cilantro for sprinkling in the soup.
