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!

Easy and Delicious Chicken Enchilada Verde Soup


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.
