This is one of the easiest and best tasting Chicken Enchilada Verde Soup recipes around! A bowl of this has so much flavor you’ll think it’s been simmering for hours – but only takes 30 minutes! Dinner couldn’t be simpler.
Easy Chicken Enchilada Verde Soup
My husband is easy to please. Make him a tasty soup – especially a Chicken Enchilada Soup – and he’s a happy man. I have tried several enchilada soup recipes over the years. The one I make with my Vitamix (yes, you can cook soup in a blender), is good, but I like this recipe better because it tastes so authentic.
The combination of salsa verde and the corn chips gives it a thick, rich flavor that just WOWS!
Tips for Making the Best Chicken Enchilada Soup
- To save time, you can use a store-bought roasted chicken or you can use chicken you cook at home.
- Garnish your Chicken Enchilada Verde Soup with avocado and cheese, and if you want, a few extra chips, a lime wedge, and cilantro.
- This soup also good with a little dollop of sour cream, but we’re big fans of the tangy stuff, but it’s totally optional for you!

Finding easy weeknight dinners can be challenging, but one of my favorite dinner hacks is using store-bought rotisserie chicken. I’m not sure I could go a week without one 🙂 Using roasted chicken for this recipe really makes this soup come together easily and taste so good.
This is everything you look for in a recipe. It’s easy, quick, delicious, and reheatable. It tastes exactly like an enchilada. You could even add some hot peppers if you wanted a little kick.
Another quick and easy dinner recipe that our family loves is this Tater Tot Casserole. It pleases everyone at the table. With a family of 6, that’s saying something!
Enjoy a quick and delicious dinner! If your husband is like mine, he’ll thank you.
