Chicken Enchilada Soup
Why I Love This Recipe
We have a new Sunday hangout- Red Lion Grog House in the Square. Sunday's .40 cent wings, $3 Sun Kings, and Hubby had the soup du jour. It was, you guessed it, Chicken Enchilada soup! It was mighty tasty, and I said, "I can make that"! It's pretty simple, and I had everything in it at home, so when we got back, I gave it a shot. Mine was a little soupier, but I'm guessing that's because the supplier had put a thickening agent of some sort in it. Tasty!

*** Hubby crunched up some of his fav Mexican junk snacks, Salsa Grava flavor Takis, which are rolled corn chips dusted in chili powder. Gave it a little more texture.
