Ingredients

1/2 c
vegetable oil
1/4 c
chicken bouillon powder
3 c
yellow onions, diced
2 tsp
ground cumin
2 tsp
chili powder
2 tsp
granulated garlic
1/2 tsp
cayenne pepper
2 c
masa harina
4 qt
water
2 c
canned crushed tomatoes
1 can(s)
(30 ounces) enchilada sauce (use macayo's brand for the best flavor)
8 oz
velveeta cheese, cubed
3 lb
cooked chicken breast, shredded

GARNISH:

1 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
4 c
tortilla chips, crushed
1 c
pico de gallo

Step-By-Step

1In large pot, place oil, chicken base, onion and spices.

2Sauté until onions are soft and clear, about 5 minutes.

3In another container, combine Masa Harina with 1 quart water.

4Stir until all lumps dissolve.

5Add to sautéed onions and bring to boil.

6Once mixture starts to bubble, continue cooking 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
This will eliminate any raw taste from Masa Harina.

7Add remaining 3 quarts water to pot.

8Add tomatoes and enchilada sauce; let mixture return to boil stirring occasionally.

9Add cheese to soup.

10Cook stirring occasionally, until cheese melts.

11Add chicken; heat through and serve. Garnish with shredded cheddar cheese, crumbled tortilla chips, and pico de gallo.
