I found this recipe on the label of the Green Enchilada sauce can...it is so tasty! I will make it again, but with a bit less heat. If Hatch brand isn't sold in your area, I am sure you can substitute others, I am just sad for you having to use inferior quality products! ;0)

This was a very good tortilla soup, but too spicy for me. I didn't use Hatch brand products, and used "salsa verde" instead of enchilada sauce. It was supposed to be mild, but I guess it was spicier than I thought. Otherwise very nice, and very easy to make. I made it in a regular soup pot on the stove because I couldn't wait for a slow cooker. I didn't even cook the chicken first, I just cubed it raw and threw it in. The soup was yummy, in small amounts. I can't wait to make it again so I can fix the "heat".
