Chili's Chicken Enchilada Soup

Chicken Enchilada Soup - Mexican Recipe Soup


1/2 Cup Vegetable oilavocados
1/4 Cup Chicken base
3 Cup diced Yellow Onions
2 teaspoon ground Cumin
2 teaspoon Chili Powder
2 teaspoon granulated Garlic
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
2 Cup Masa Harina
4 quart Water (divided)
2 Cup crushed Tomatoes
1/2 pound processed American cheese, cut in small cube
3 pound cooked, cubed chicken


In large pot, place oil, chicken base, onion and spices. Sauté until onions are soft and clear, about 5 minutes.

In another container, combine Masa Harina with 1 quart water. Stir until all lumps dissolve.

Add to sautéed onions, bring to boil. Once mixture starts to bubble, continue cooking 2−3 minutes, stirring constantly. This will eliminate any raw taste from Masa harina.

Add remaining 3 quarts water to pot. Add tomatoes; let mixture return to boil stirring occasionally.

Add cheese to soup. Cook stirring occasionally, until cheese melts.

Add chicken; heat through.

Makes 1 1/2 gallons or 16−20 servings.

6 large (about 3 1/2 lb. total) onions, thinly sliced

About 7 1/2 cups regular-strength chicken or vegetable broth

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons ground dried New Mexico or California chilies

1 1/4 cups (about 5 oz.) shredded jack cheese with jalapeno chilies

Fried tortilla strips (recipe follows)

1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro (coriander)

In a 5- to 6-quart pan, combine onions, 1 cup broth, cumin, coriander, and oregano. Cover and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid evaporates, 25 to 30 minutes. Uncover pan and turn heat to high; stir often, scraping free brown film that forms on pan bottom, until onions are a rich caramel color, 15 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, smoothly mix 6 1/2 A cups broth with the flour. Add ground chilies to onions and mix well. Pour broth and flour mixture into pan. Stir over high heat until boiling; reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cook 15 to 20 minutes to blend flavors, stirring often.

Note: (If making ahead, cool, cover, and chill up to 1 day. Stir often over medium heat until steaming.)
