Good soup for a chilly day. It's a little thin - I think some corn or black beans next time.

This soup is delicious! And a bonus to make it in the pressure cooker (so fast). I went to my local Mexican restaurant and bought some enchilada sauce (better than canned and I haven't found a recipe to make it myself that I like). Thanks for the recipe! Fast, easy and delicious :)

LOVE this recipe!! I did add the optional toppings in. SUPER YUMMY. The only thing I did differently was use my Smoky Mexican Chipotle Seasoning from Whole Foods. this is a keeper!

I have not tried this recipe but I plan to. I just wish, I_Fortuna would not be so mean spirited. This recipe never claimed to be Mexican and the whole idea of this site is for people to share their recipes and give other people ideas. Old or new. If you can't say something nice or give some tips on something you altered, don't say anything at all. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
