I came up with this because i wanted to make enchilada casserole, using the sausage and beans for bulk since i didn't have enough corn tortillas or cheese...but it tasted so good the way it was, i decided to make a soup out of it...and i'm glad i did...the hubby loved it, i'll definitely be making this again!
I served it with flour tortillas browned in a dry frying pan, then rolled. Would be good with quesadillas or cornbread too.

How to Make Green Enchilada Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Season hash browns with salt, pepper and onion powder to taste, brown in oven til crispy.
  2. Brown sausage in large pot/dutch oven until it starts to turn brown on edges, add chopped onion and continue until sausage is mostly brown and onion is softened. Drain grease.
  3. Add hash browns to sausage and onions, stir. Add pinto beans with liquid and enchilada sauce. Heat through, adding water if necessary, until consistency you like. Taste and add more seasonings if wanted (i used the chicken bouillon, pepper and onion powder - no salt, because the bouillon is salty and adds flavor)
