I've made this soup 4 times in a month, it tastes exactly like Chili's restaurant enchilada soup which is my favorite. I only use 5 tortillas to put in the chix broth, so it's not as thick. I also add one can of chopped chilis. I take the rest of the tortillas and cut them into thin strips and fry them in a little olive oil to make crispy strips to put in the soup for a bit of crunch....delicious!!!!! I made it for a group of people yesterday, they raved and raved!

This is a wonderful creamy soup that is great when short on time. I use a roasted chicken (shredded), one large can of green sauce (no red sauce) and a small can of green chilis (no jalapeno). Add more broth if it gets too thick. I use a stick blender and give it a few whirls in the pot to smooth out the soup. top with grated cheese, sour cream, avocado, and tortilla strips. (My husband makes strips by cutting corn tortillas into 1/4"x3" pieces, laying them on a paper towel in the microwave and cooking for less than a minute. Watch it well as it will burn quickly!!!)
