Copycat Chicken Enchilada Soup

I recently realized that I do not have very many chicken recipes on my site. I love chicken and I really need to share more of them with you.

So, in an effort to fix my lack of chicken recipes, I decided that for Souper Monday this week I would share a chicken soup recipe. My copycat chicken enchilada soup recipe to be exact.

We love soup, and we love Mexican type food, so my family thinks this soup is a perfect combination.

This is similar to the chicken enchilada soup I have had at like Chili’s or other restaurants. It is not exactly the same, but we think it is pretty close.

  1. Just curious – how much does this make and would it freeze well?

    • I makes dinner for my family of 5 plus enough for my husband’s lunch. So, I would say it serves about 6. I have never frozen it, but I do not see why it would not. It might change the texture a little, but I think it would be fine.

  2. Made this for dinner tonight and its fabulous! Thaks for sharing the recipe:) We liked it served over crushed tortilla chips. I had a 19 oz can of enchilada sauce so I cut back the water by a cup to use the whole can. Also we like food spicy so I added some red pepper flakes.

    Oh My!!!! This soup is DELICIOUS!!!

    I have never had a soup like this at a restaurant so I cannot compare it to that but it is extremely flavorful! There is not one overpowering flavor but a wonderful combination of flavors!

    My whole family loved this soup, which is saying a lot because we are picky soup eaters. This one is definitely a keeper!

  4. Tried this tonight and it is a winner! As told by my hubby, Both the soup and the sauce are going in the cook book 🙂 Another quiet dinner with my 5 and 7 year olds, so yeah, they loved it too! Thank you once again Lynn, you have been my GF dinner savor for weeks now.

    • I am so glad your family enjoyed this. And yeah for another gf family friendly dinner! I love sharing easy dinners that just happen to be gluten free. 🙂 Thanks for letting me know that you all enjoyed it.

    Soup was spectacular! Thank you so much
    For the recipe!

  6. I was wondering if regular milk could be substitiuted for evaporated milk.

    • Yes, it can be. Regular milk is not as creamy and will give it a slightly different taste, but should work. I hope that helps.
