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)
- 1 1⁄2 lbs shredded cooked chicken (I had leftover rotisserie chicken and then tossed in 2 breasts from the freezer to get in the ball p)
- 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1 (14 ounce) canhatch green enchilada sauce
- 2 (4 ounce) canshatch diced green chilies (it was a little too spicy for us, I will cut it back to one next time for us)
- 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 2 cups water
- 1 (15 ounce) can chicken broth
- 2 teaspoons cumin
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons pepper
- 15 ounces corn, drained
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- avocado, cubed
- sour cream
- shredded cheese, of your choice
- tortillas or tortilla chips
- Combine all ingredients to the corn in the large crock pot.
- Cook for 6 to 8 hours on low.
- If using whole chicken breast remove before serving and shred with forks, then return to pot and stir.
- The others items on list are for garnish after this bad boy is cooked.
- Serve in your favorite soup bowls with chips and garnish of choice -- oh I added some more raw onions and would use green onions next time for some other green color.
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".
Used black beans instead of pinto, Rotel for the diced tomatoes and green chilies. Love this soup! Added toppings, Sour Cream, Cheddar Cheese, Avocado, tortilla chips. Was so good with both had seconds! Spice level was just right - Mild to Medium. Even better the next day. Will be making this one again.
This was fantastic! I used Mexican Rotel instead of the green chilis. It was a little too spicy for the kids, but mom and dad loved it!
