This Easy Creamy Chicken and Enchilada Soup is full of the most delicious flavors. Oh my, it’s delicious. Shredded chicken, corn, black beans, and cheese make this soup irresistible. It’s the perfect soup for a cold winter night. This soup takes no time to make but tastes like it has been simmering all day. I used chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken to save time. You can certainly make your own chicken breast though.
If you follow me on my Instagram Stories, you have seen me making this soup many times. I was making it once a week. It’s just oh so good.
For the toppings, I like to use greek yogurt in place of sour cream. I also like to add a few tortilla strips. You could also add jalapenos and or cilantro. I love cilantro.
Trust me when I say this soup will not disappoint. If you love soups like me you might like my Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe in the pressure cooker. If you make any of my recipes I would love to see them on social media. Tag@acupfullofsass
