This is a copy of a favorite served at a local restaurant. My family loves it! Serve soup in bowls garnished with shredded Cheddar or Jack cheese and crumbed tortilla chips.

If you like the chicken enchilada soup form Chili's, then you will love this! For those of you who are unclear, masa harina is just a corn flour (similar to corn meal but ground much finer) and you can find it at your local grocery store. If you can find the masa, then definitely make this soup! You will not be disappointed.

This is everything you look for in a recipe; easy, quick, delicious and reheatable. It tastes exactly like an enchilada. I added chipotle pepper, halved the cheese, and used barbecue chicken breast I already had cooked from last night, which saved on the time. FOR THE MASA HARINA HATERS: When mixing the masa with the water, whisk a little at a time into your water (about a tablespoon at a time) very quickly, until it is all dissolved. This gives it a much smoother consistency and alleviates the grittiness.

Karen, I want to thank you so much for this recipe. It's been a while since a new recipe wowwed me like this one did & my beau just raved about it. Awesome stuff, he said. As usual, I made some adjustments & additions but the recipe, as written, proved to be a great foundation. I took a chance & found a more than adequate substitute for the 'gritty' masa to thicken the soup. Other recipes mentioned using torn up unfried corn tortillas (I used about 5 small tortillas-probably few more next time). I don't have a need for any extra masa so the tortillas worked beautifully. They practically dissolve, giving a lovely texture. Be sure to add additional cup or so of liquid. It can be stock, water, V-8 or beer, of course. I may try tequila...I encourage all of you non-gritties to please give this recipe another chance nixing the masa for tortillas. Trust me & Karen. According to our tastes, I added sauteed onions, chopped fresh jalapenos, black beans, corn & I added some red cayenne pepper, about 1/3 tsp. Be careful-cayenne is hot so add sparingly. It really wakes up the flavor & it makes your tummy warm & happy. Souper Recipe (ha)! 5 Yums Up!
