You guessed it: there are seven cans of chili, beans, tomatoes and peppers that go into making this wonderfully warm and richly textured soup.
Empty the corn, chili, kidney beans, pinto beans, black beans, tomatoes and tomatoes with green chiles, liquid included, into a large pot over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes to bring all the flavors together. Add salt and pepper as needed.
Dice the cheese and stir it into the soup until melted. Serve immediately.
