    Please consider adding this recipe to the Velveeta group. You are the only one that can do this since it is your submitted recipe. You'll need to join the group but you can easily unjoin after you add the recipe if you want.

    I have to agree with lovebreezy about Chili's chicken enchalada soup and now I have to try yours. Thanks for the great post. Dan

    You can use left over chicken from another meal, but use your best judgment, blander is better if you want to use left overs. Masa Harina is a mexican corn flour that can be found in the ethnic food isle at your grocery store. I apologise for the delay in the response.

    Can I use shredded chicken that is left over from another meal? Or will that change the recipe? Where do I get the Masa Harina?

    My favorite soup out at Chili's Restaurants is their Chicken Enchalada -- I'm glad to have this recipe for home use.
    Also glad to have another good recipe for the Velveeta group.
