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 I’m a big fan of the tangy stuff, so it’s totally optional for you!

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 – 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.
