Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup

My friend Ashley tweeted one evening around dinner time something about Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup.  I am so bad about hearing things and not being able to forget.  I wanted that soup so bad!!

So I searched all the recipe websites I know and found a super easy recipe. I made a few changes to it and my version of Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup was born. 

What you will need:

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and diced
2 cans of 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
1 can of enchilada sauce, I used about 15 oz
1 4 oz can chopped green chilies
2 cups of milk
1 cup of shredded cheddar, Monterrey jack cheese
(i overdid the cheese, but honestly there is no such thing as too much cheese)

What to do:

Mix the soup, enchilada sauce and milk in a pan on the stove top.  Slowly stir in cheese and cook on low heat for about 7 minutes.  Then add chilies and chicken.  Let it all simmer for about 20 minutes on very low heat.  Serve immediately topped with smashed tortilla chips. 

 I served it with chips and guacamole. I love homemade guacamole.

I tasted so delicious and will be even better on a crisp fall day.  It isn't fall here right now.  It is down right hot!  I am ready for some rain and cooler weather.  Hopefully this weekend will bring some coolness!

That sounds really good! It's been warm here, too. We're supposed to have rain move in, but it's still going to be in the upper 70's and low 80's. Not exactly fall!

OK seriously Rondell would love you. I'm not sure if he'd like the soup, but the comment about never too much cheese is what he says all the time! This soup looks really yummy.
