Heaven Help me - Chicken Enchelada Soup


Caution, some may not survive reading this blasphemy - sorry - no photos

The Wife's (MHNBPF) recipe:

Chicken Enchilada Soup

You’ll need:

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 lb chicken breast or tenders)
1/2 cup diced onion
8 cups chicken broth
2 Tablespoons white corn masa, ground to flour consistency
1 small can red enchilada sauce
16 ounces Velveeta Cheese (Heaven help us - several F&DB folks just died of appoplexy)
1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste
Black pepper to taste (1/2 teaspoon)
1 teaspoon chili powder, mild or hot to your taste
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons Lawry’s Garlic Salt
Optional – 1 teaspoon red cayenne pepper for heat – not really needed.
Optional – 2-4 Tablespoons Mexicorn

Garnish

1 cup Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese mix fine grated

Pico de Gallo:

2 pods Jalapeño pepper no seeds or white membrane chopped fine, 6 Tablespoons onion chopped fine, 2 medium tomatoes 1/4 inch dice, 2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro.

Crispy Tortilla strips

Directions:

In a sauté pan, cook the chicken tenders in 2 Tablespoons oil, seasoned with a dash of salt, a little black pepper, a teaspoon of Lawry’s Garlic Seasoning or fresh garlic and a half teaspoon of cumin. After the chicken has cooked through and browned slightly, cube it into 1/2 – 3/4 inch pieces and set aside.

In the same sauté pan, saute the onions until they begin to get tender. Add another Tablespoon of oil if needed.

Deglaze the pan with a can of chicken broth. Transfer the onions and liquid to a soup pot, add all other ingredients (except corn meal) and cook at a low simmer for twenty minutes, stirring occasionally to keep anything from sticking.

After twenty minutes, in a bowl, combine the cornmeal with a few teaspoons of the soup, to make a paste, then stir into the soup to thicken it. Continue simmering for five more minutes, then turn off heat, cover pot and allow it to rest for another ten minutes while you make Pico de Gallo and a mixed Greens Salad.

Serve this soup in a shallow soup bowl with a couple of Tablespoons of the cheese mixture (don’t buy the already shredded cheese blend), a handful of tortilla chips (or not) and a Tablespoon of Pico de Gallo.

Some (like me) will like a dollop of sour cream.

Yes it has Velveeta Cheese in it - There, I said it again.

Not at the moment. Someone asked for this and We're having something else tonight.

Sorry. I'll get around to it eventually and repost with pictures.

You're going to have to take my word that it looks good and tastes better that it looks.

I think you're misrepresenting the nature of some folks on here who look at ingredients like this with disdain. In my opinion it has less to do with some made up story about posters here being snobs and more to do with the fact that it's unhealthy bastardized version of real food.

For instance, Velveeta Cheese has 410mg of sodium per ounce. And this recipe calls for 16 ounces of it. Wrap your head around that.

That is a lot of sodium

Really the only reason I ever see to use velveeta is in some sort of cheese dip because it melts with ease

It's tough to get other cheese dips just right, particularly if you can't keep them hot

No - head might explode



You know my opinion on this stuff, or you should know it by now.

The recipe is mine na dthis is how I would make it the next time we have it.

You can make it be yours by changing anything you want.

I look at it like a novel sold to a film producer. When it becomes yours you can change it any way you like.

Would be nice if you didn't add cream of mushroom soup to it, but if you want to do that, go for it.

Trying to be me and nothing else intended.

Peace to you, brother.



edited to add - a quick calculation tells me this will feed maybe 8, so the sodium is not so

Hope you had a big lunch.

I think your wife may be shopping in the wrong section at the grocery.

No. The sodium content is terrible. You get 820mg from the velveeta cheese alone

This doesn't count the chicken broth, salt, garlic salt, tortilla chips, and cheese that you're going to use as garnish.

That dish is a sodium bomb any way you slice it.
