Have you been to Chili’s? If not, you should go. Soon. It’s delicious. If you have been to Chili’s, have you tried their enchilada soup?? No?? Unthinkable. It’s like an ooey, gooey, cheesy enchilada gone soup-style. Hence the name enchilada soup. It’s SO good.
There are a bazillion copycat recipes out on the web for Chili’s enchilada soup, I’ve tried a few and they’re really really good. So if you don’t live near a Chili’s I’d recommend trying one of those. If you love a good cheese enchilada, you will not regret making that soup.
The Chili’s enchilada soup is red. Made with red enchilada sauce. But today I’m sharing with you a very special, extremely amazing twist on that enchilada soup. Green enchilada soup! I know it’s pretty obvious but, this enchilada soup is made with green enchilada sauce. I very much love green enchiladas, probably more so than red enchiladas. Which is why I love this soup even more than the oh so popular red enchilada soup. Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone who has been sharing that recipe, it really is delicious. But you should try this Green Enchilada Soup, you’re gonna love it.

wow this sounds so yummy, gotta make soon.thanks
Is there a substitute for masa harina? Is the corn tortilla mix just ground tortillas?
Hi Christina, you can finely chop up about 12 corn tortillas and add it to the soup instead of the masa haring. You will probably want to put the soup in a blender at the end to blend it really smooth. 🙂
Wow just loved this soup
I did add the chicken
A fine dish for a cold night
