Chicken Enchilada Soup

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

This soup is so easy to throw together and is really tasty. It gets quite a bit of heat from the enchilada sauce so be careful about adding extra spice. I serve with cheese quesadillas for a filling meal. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup cooked chicken, diced
  • 3 cups chicken broth (bouillon works just fine)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
  • 1 (19 ounce) can enchilada sauce (I prefer Old El Paso)
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
  • 12 cup onion, diced
  • 12 cup green pepper, diced
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen corn
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In large soup pot, sauté onion and green pepper in oil over medium-high. Heat until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add all other ingredients and mix until well blended.
  3. Let simmer over medium heat for 10-15 minutes so flavors can blend.
  4. Ladle into bowls and enjoy!

Delicious!! This quick and easy soup was a huge hit with my family. I used about 2 c. of rotisserie chicken which made this soup even quicker to make. Also, I didn't drain the black beans, I added a couple of generous handfuls of finely crushed tortilla chips, and about 1 tsp. cumin and some garlic powder, to taste. I served this topped with sliced green onions and 4-cheese Mexican cheese. Thank you for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper!!

Love this recipe- very good flavor and very economical. I added an extra can of black beans- I had them and there was not any too many beans with just the one can. I used left over turkey and stock from boiling the turkey bones.

Great soup. We added a little more chicken than called for and added about a teaspoon of cumin. Will have this one again! Thanks for the recipe.
