    Helping Hands's Note:

    This is a delicious variation of tortilla soup that I got from my wonderful sister, Liz (and then slighly modified)! The secret is the green enchilada sauce - it makes for a nice hot and spicy soup! Enjoy!

      I made as directed except I used frozen whole green chile from We used the Joe E Parker variety, which is 'medium' hot. We should have doubled the recipe :) Absolutely delicious and good for a chilly fall evening.

      I should also note that although we now live in northern Idaho, we relocated from southern New Mexico (Las Cruces). I had my green chile shipped this year and was looking for recipes. This one caught my attention and was well worth it!

      What a delightful soup! Made as directed, but I think next time I will make some changes. I will probably dice up some fresh jalapenos with the onions and garlic. I used a whole container of Bueno (New Mexico green chile) and it was not hot enough for us!! LOL You know how people from the SW are! It has a wonderful flavor and the chicken is so nice and tender. We put tortilla chips in the bottom of our bowl, added the soup and topped with cheese, sour cream and avacado. DELISH! This will be sooooo good come winter. Thanks for sharing with us!!
