Chicken Enchilada Soup

Beth Pierce


Soup season is just right around the corner. Thank goodness! Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. There is just something magical about the beautiful trees of the Midwest changing colors and putting the best that nature has to offer on display. Soup is just the perfect fall meal and I love everything about it! This Chicken Enchilada soup will quickly become one of your favorite meals.
