  • In an extra-large skillet bring salsa to simmering over medium heat; stir in broth. Return to simmering. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Stir in ham.

  • Set aside a few of the tortilla strips for garnishing. Stir the remaining tortilla strips into salsa mixture. Simmer, uncovered, about 3 minutes or until tortilla strips soften and mixture thickens slightly.

  • Garnish with the reserved tortilla strips and, if desired, jalapeño peppers. Serve with cheese, sour cream, and, if desired, Fried Eggs.

*Tip:

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
