So delicious! Just what I was looking for. I had to use cooked chicken instead of turkey, and I'm sure that the turkey will taste better. I'm looking forward to the flavors blending over the next couple of days. I will definitely make this soup again.

This soup was definitely not a flavor I cared for initially. Though I love Verde enchilada sauce, and pumpkin in all its forms; when combined it produced a bitter flavor, I added some sugar to sweeten, as well as garlic, cumin, and white pinto beans. I simmered for several hours. Served with crushed tortilla chip and lots of shredded cheese. The alterations were the ticket for us!!....delicious, warm, and filling!!

This is delicious & has lots of flavor. I was really unsure about the pumpkin, but it balances well with the enchilada sauce. I adjusted a few things to use what I had on hand - used 3 cups of broth, 2 - 10 oz. cans of green enchilada sauce, canned corn & leftover chicken. And added a can of black beans. Would probably taste great with red enchilada sauce as well.
