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 Old El Paso products 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!

Enjoy 🙂

Chunky Chicken Enchilada Soup

I used these three delicious Old El Paso products for the base of my soup.

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!

    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.
