"Excellent recipe, i did make modifications to make it taste and look more like Chili's soup. Added: 1 tbs of chili powder, 1/4 teapoon of cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon of onion powder in place of whole o..." See morenion xtra lb of chicken, used full 10oz can of enchilada sauce & 1/2 can of tomato paste (small can) and used 1/2 lb of light velvetta these changes it made it taste just like if not better than chili's version with much less fat/cal."
"Could someone tell me what exactly you do with the masa harina powder? I don't feel like I am getting the results I should be with this soup. It turns out really thick, lumpy, and grainy and tastes li..." See moreke flour... that's why I think I am doing something wrong with the masa harina. You don't directly put the masa harina powder/water mixture in the soup do you? Thanks for any help!"
"Yummy. I think it is close to Chili's C. E. soup. I heated a tbsp olive oil and added 2 cloves of garlic and then added 3 small chicken breasts. I cooked the breasts in a pot on both sides until juice..." See mores were clear. Then I removed the chicken and added the diced onions and cooked until translucent. I poured in 2 (14.5 oz each)cans of chicken broth and stirred. I mixed 1/4 cup of masa harina which is corn flour (Quaker company makes this also found on the aisle where the Latino food products are or near the regular white flour)with a 1/2 cup of water, stir it well to get out lumps and then I added it to the pot that has the chicken broth and onions. Then I mix another 1/4 cup of masa harina with just enough water to make it like a thick, wet paste, stir it until blended, it should not look dry or crumbly, but smooth and sort of thick. I added this mixture to the pot and stirred. Then I added 1 cup water, I made up a package of mc cormick enchilada sauce and added all of it to the pot (approx. 3 cups or more), 16 oz of velveeta cheese, salt, chili powder & cumin. Stirred. Brought to a boil, stirring often so the cheese did not stick as much and also used a non-stick pot. Added diced cooked chicken. Stirred. Reduce heat and I simmer until thick about 5 minutes. This gives the soup a thick/thin top texture, not as grainy from the masa harina. I topped it with pico de gallo and crushed tortilla chips (Tia Rosa Mega thins) and a little shredded cheese. Excellente!!"
