Heat oven to 375°F.

Melt butter in 12-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat until sizzling.

Stir in salsa, broth and green chiles; continue cooking 2-4 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil.

Reduce heat to low. Add tortilla chips, a handful at a time, gently stirring chips into salsa mixture. Continue cooking 4-6 minutes or until chips begin to soften and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat.
