It’s so nice having quick and simple dinner recipes that you can count on when you life is busy busy. I whipped up this ultra flavorful soup using some of my favorite simple pantry items in literally minutes. We love having Mexican style meals on a weekly basis if not more, so this was a real treat to bring to the dinner table. Hearty with lots of vegetables, it does not disappoint!

You’ll need some cooked chicken breast. You can use either a rotisserie chicken or check your grocery store for already cooked chicken that is packaged up. I get mine from Trader Joe’s and I just chop it into bite size pieces.
Add your chopped chicken and corn to the saucepan. I found this charred corn from Trader Joe’s. It’s awesome! Perfect for soups!
Your red enchilada sauce is up next.
I also added some dicd tomatoes then a can of Old El Paso Green Chilies.
Your mild green chile sauce is next.
Add some ground cumin and I’m not kidding that is it! Give a good stir and cook until hot. Enjoy!
Garnish your bowl with some fresh cilantro leaves and tortilla chips if you’d like.

Hoping to make this soup later in the week. What brand am I looking for with respect to the diced tomatoes with peppers? Rotel?
This recipe sounded so good and easy so I bought all the ingredients and as I am making it, I realize that the green sauce has wheat in it…BUMMER!! I have a gluten allergy. Anything to replace the green sauce? I am going to try a little.
Winters and soups go hand in hand for me. 😀 Surely give this a try, looking yummy.
Thanks Minnie, hope you enjoy!
