Right now is your blessed working day, my friend! You are about to learn to make Chili’s well known Chicken Enchilada Soup in your have dwelling. I stumbled on this recipe two days back, made it final evening, and the response I got thoroughly motivated me to produce this report!
This is THE fantastic soup. It is properly balanced in each individual way a soup can be balanced. Not much too gentle, not much too spicy. Not much too creamy, not much too watery. Not much too chunky, not much too simple.
The finishing touches of shredded blended cheese (monterey jack and cheddar), pico de gallo, and crunchy tortilla strips make it not only balanced, but entertaining to try to eat.
I’ve been in like with this soup eternally. I was completely stoked to come throughout the recipe. I served mine to my spouse, our twin 12-yr-outdated daughters, a friend/coworker, and two neighbors (yes, the recipe tends to make A Great deal!) Everyone’s eyes rolled back again, shut, and have been accompanied by hearty utterances of “Mmmmm…”
Oh fantastic, now I am heading to have to make it yet again and yet again! )
These are the elements I employed:
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup rooster foundation
- 3 cups diced yellow onions
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 cups Masa Harina (Mexican flour)
- 4 quarts water (divided into 1 and 3)
- 2 cups crushed tomatoes
- 1/2 pound processed American cheese, cubed
- 3 lbs cooked rooster, pieced
- pico de gallo, blended cheese shreds, and crunchy tortilla strips, to taste
All of these elements are pretty frequent and obtainable in any grocery retailer. If your retailer has a “Hispanic Foods” aisle, you will come across Masa Harina there. Contemporary pico is advised around canned or jarred. Tortilla chips will work when dwelling-fried strips are not sensible.
To make your Chili’s Chicken Enchilada Soup:
- Mix oil, rooster foundation, onion, and spices in a substantial pot.
- Saute till onions are comfortable and distinct, about 5 minutes.
- In a substantial mixing bowl, mix Masa Harina with 1 quart water. Stir till all lumps dissolve.

- Once combination begins to bubble, continue cooking for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Include remaining 3 quarts of water and crushed tomatoes. Allow combination return to a boil, stirring once in a while.
- Include American cheese and rooster. Decrease heat and simmer to ideal regularity.
- Serve in substantial bowls. Top with blended cheese shreds, pico, and tortilla strips.
