Enchilada Soup

Enchilada Soup created by cookiedog

This is one of my most favorite soup recipes! my family requests it on cold rainy days or for a Mexican fiesta. It will definitely take the chill off your bones. Be sure to watch the amount of pepper, or you will get it too hot! The enchilada sauce is spicy in itself. I've added cooked Fajita chicken to this to make it even heartier.

    Excellent! Made tonight as directed (except for subbing chicken broth for beef) and added the chicken. While tasty on its own, what made the soup was the addition of the tortilla strips and cheese in the bottom of the bowl before adding the soup. Don't skip that part! It truly tasted like chicken enchiladas. Will make again. Thanks for posting!

    This is an awesome-tasting soup and so simple to make. I will definitely be making this again and again.

    Delicious flavor my family will continue to ask for! Super easy dinner too...I love this one - it goes into my keeper recipes! We made it on the spicy side (like we like it) and I served it with cheese, the corn strips and lime sour crema - YUM!!! Thanks for another great one, V!!

    If you only ever try one soup in your life - make it this one! This was outstanding. I added a squeeze of chili sauce, about 200g peeled and deveined green prawns (shrimp) and used diced tomatoes - we don't have cans of stewed tomatoes on the Gold Coast. Thank you so much for posting this recipe - just loved it!

    Delicious! I added a can of black beans and a can of corn. I will definately make it again and I may add rice next time too. Thank you for this recipe.
