Chicken Enchilada Soup


My sister Ashley sent me this recipe for Chicken Enchilada Soup. I am sharing it with you because it is delicious and stupid easy. In fact, I regret that Sam watched me open up the 6 cans and dump everything in because I got no props for making dinner. He loved the soup and that is saying something since (like most men) he doesn't like soup. I suggest making this before your husband walks in the door and then acting like you really put yourself out!

Here is the recipe:

1 can of green chili enchilada sauce
1 (15 oz. can, drained) yellow corn
1 large (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 package of taco seasoning
1 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
1 (15 ounce) can black beans
1 can of chunk chicken (I bought a rotisserie chicken and pulled the chicken off--much better than the canned stuff.)

Open the cans, pour everything into a large saucepan or stock pot. Simmer over medium heat until chicken is heated through.

Serve w/ shredded cheese, sour cream, avocado,fresh tomatoes, & tortilla chips, etc

This would be good with my cornbread recipe found here.

Enjoy!

This sounds good to me except for the chicken of course!

I don't think I've told you how much I enjoy your blog banner, it's hilarious.

I can't believe I'm admitting this in public- BUT, the canned chicken from Costco is actually not bad. However, I've only used it in enchilada soup recipes. Can't wait to try this one. Thanks for sharing Brookie!

I actually love the canned chicken from Costco in stuff like chicken salad. But in enchiladas and soup, I like to use a real bird (rotisserie chicken.)

This soup truly is delish and so easy, and don't forget it's also food storage friendly! (Don't tell Sam that either, it will be truly be ruined for him.) Credit for the recipe goes to Lu, and the recipe originally called for a chicken breast cooked and cut up but I dumbed it down to the can.

Hmm. This sounds iffy to me. I'm not sure it would pass my test. It would pass Lance's for sure, because he has a poor man's taste and will eat anything he doesn't have to cook.

Ok--I will try it and get back to you.

Your banner is truly cute, as Jill pointed out. I emailed Heather to do one for me--I would pay her, of course.

Thanks for sharing. Jason has been asking for this, but I didn't have a recipe (that I knew was good).

Thanks for the recipe! My DH went on and on about how good it was! It's definitely a keeper.
