Enchilada Chicken Soup Recipe

Canned soups, enchilada sauce and a few other convenience items make this recipe one of my fast-to-fix favorites. Use mild green chilies if they suit your tastes, or try a spicier variety to give the soup more kick. -Cristin Fischer, Bellevue, Nebraska

"I was pressed for time and came across this recipe. What a great find! I didn't have condensed nacho soup, so I subbed Velveeta cheese and salsa I also added a can of mexicorn to give it more depth of flavor. This would be good next time I have leftover chicken instead of using the canned."

"I use boneless, skinless chicken breast (just cook it in the oven whole with salt and pepper and then cut it into chunks to use in the recipe) and it is SOOOO much better. We prefer our version to be meatier than the amount used in the recipe. Such a simple recipe, but really delicious. We always serve it with tortilla chips."

I used fat free milk instead of the whole milk and cubed chicken breasts that I had previously cooked (and stuck in the freezer for recipes like this) and it still tasted great.

"Made this recipe several times. I use plain Cheddar Cheese soup instead of the Fiesta Nacho soup. I also use 1/2 a chicken breast sauteed with onions and peppers and seasoned with a bit of cumin and chili powder instead of canned chicken. I serve tortilla chips on the side for dipping.
