It started with a Chilis commercial for their bottomless lunch special. They mentioned the chips and salsa and their enchilada soup. After that I was craving it bad. Now Ive never been very good at the “Look in the pantry to see what I can throw together to make something fantastic” way of cooking. I need a recipe, even if I dont stick to it 100%. Last night I decided I was going to make enchilada soup. And it was awesome. Fo Sho something that will be made again fairly often.
What you need:
Cooked cubed chicken. I used 4 of the frozen strips.
1 can chicken broth
1 can red enchilada sauce
1 can green enchilada sauce
1 can diced green chilis
About 4 corn tortillas cut into strips
1 jalapeno, diced
1 package of 90 second Spanish Rice
Splash of milk
Shredded cheese to put on top
Ok, now looking bad it doesnt seem like this was rocket science or anything. I pretty much chopped up everything I would have put in enchiladas but added some chicken broth and milk. Oh well. Its still freakin awesome.
I started with the chicken broth and torillas…then came the sauces, chicken, peppers and the splash of milk. It was still too thin/empty tasting so we searched around and found a package of the 90 second microwave Spanish Rice. Well, since the movers took our microwave I figured we didnt need to save it and dumped that whole sucker in. PERFECT. Just what it needed. After its all heated through spoon into a bowl and top with cheese. Oh my yum. And spicy too.
