    1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot and saute the onion and garlic until tender. Season with oregano.
    2. Mix in the chicken stock and tomatoes. Bring to the boil. Mix in the courgettes, yellow squash, sweetcorn and chillies. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
    3. Mix the processed cheese into the soup. Continue to cook and stir until cheese is melted. Season with pepper. Mix in the coriander just before serving.


    Yellow squash looks like yellow courgettes. If these are unavailable, use ordinary courgettes instead.
    Tinned diced green chillies can be purchased online. Alternatively, you can use fresh chillies to taste.
