I've always wanted a enchilda soup recipe as my friend makes it all the time but wont share the recipe lol thanks!hunnee in Nanaimo loved it
Absolutely Delicious! I used a whole rotisserie chicken (de-boned and diced) and used corn starch to thicken the soup instead of the Masa Mix. I also used medium spiced enchilada sauce and Mexican Style Velveeta Cheess so I did not have to add any ...moremammachef in loved it
