How To Make Chicken Enchilada Soup

One of the things that you will absolutely love about this soup recipe is that it ridiculously easy. You basically throw everything in a pot, let it come up to a boil. And then simmer for a few minutes!

It is pretty much fool proof!

My biggest tips for the recipe are to make sure that the cream of chicken soup really breaks down all the way. You want that yumminess to get to its melty creamy sweet spot.

I also add in the chicken at about the 10 minute spot. You are really just looking to warm it up, and not actually cook it.

And, one note about the cheese. I have actually added the cheese to the chicken enchilada soup two different ways. You can  add it to the entire soup pot, and stir it until it melts. Or, you can add it to each individual bowl of soup depending on individual preference. Each way is delicious, and you can’t go wrong! So, do whatever you think will work best for your family.
