I love soup. I think I told you the story about how I basically became “Soup Girl” at one of my old jobs because I brought soup in for lunch almost every day. Soup is my ultimate comfort food which is why I love to make lots of it during the winter season. There is nothing like eating a big bowl of soup while I binge on my favorite TV shows (we just had a Big Bang Theory marathon last night!) with my family and friends. I wouldn’t want to spend my nights any other way.
Remember on Wednesday I told you about our impromptu Walking Dead parties" Well this was on the menu last week along with the brown butter pecan madeleines. I love chicken enchiladas and yesterday I shared my recipe for homemade chicken enchilada sauce and why chicken enchiladas are so special for me. I don’t make actual enchiladas very often, but I love to make it in different forms like breakfast burritos and this chicken enchilada soup.
I love how incredible hearty this chicken enchilada soup is and the flavor is incredible! In the recipe I use masa harina. It’s a finely ground corn flour that is typically used in making corn tortillas. You can find this at pretty much every grocery store in either the flour section or international aisle. It’s what gives the soup its authentic enchilada flavor. I also used RO*TEL diced tomatoes with lime and cilantro for added flavor. (And in case you were wonering, I used Hunt’s tomato paste in my enchilada sauce, it’s the best tomato paste!)
You can top your soup with anything! I prefer crushed tortillas, lots of chees...
