Chicken Enchilada Soup

I was talking to an old friend the other and she said, do you still have that Chicken Enchilada Soup recipe that you used to make for our fellowship group? I told her I hadn't made it in a long time but after I found the recipe and remembered how good it was, guess what I made a big pot of the soup. This Chicken Enchilada Soup is full of flavor and very easy to put together. It is a great recipe for any event or a family dinner. I sent my friend the recipe and thought that my readers might enjoy the recipe as much as we have through the years.

Chicken Enchilada Soup

Chicken Enchilada Soup
Miz Helen's Kitchen
3 cups cooked chicken, chopped
2 cups whole kernel corn
2 cups cooked pinto beans
1 large yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups canned diced tomatoes
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups red enchilada sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
sour cream
baked tortilla strips
In a heavy stew pot, heat the olive oil and saute the onion until clear, add the corn and cook until the corn begins to brown.
Add 1/2 cup of the chicken broth and mix well.
Add the pinto beans and the tomatoes to the mix and add the chicken stirring the mix.
Add the seasons and garlic, mix well.
Add the remainder of the chicken broth and the enchilada sauce and mix well.
Heat the mixture to very hot, do not boil, reduce the heat to low and cook for 20 to 30 minutes.
Simmer until ready to serve. The longer it simmer's the better it gets.
Garnish with sour cream, chopped avocado's and serve with baked tortilla chips.
Recipe Tip
This soup will freeze for up to 3 months.
