How to Make Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup (Chili's)

Step-by-Step

  1. In large pot, place oil, chicken base, onion and spices.
  2. Sauté until onions are soft and clear, about 5 minutes.
  3. In another container, combine Masa Harina with 1 quart water.
  4. Stir until all lumps dissolve.
  5. Add to sautéed onions and bring to boil.
  6. Once mixture starts to bubble, continue cooking 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
    This will eliminate any raw taste from Masa Harina.
  7. Add remaining 3 quarts water to pot.
  8. Add tomatoes and enchilada sauce; let mixture return to boil stirring occasionally.
  9. Add cheese to soup.
  10. Cook stirring occasionally, until cheese melts.
  11. Add chicken; heat through and serve. Garnish with shredded cheddar cheese, crumbled tortilla chips, and pico de gallo.
