Cheesy Chicken Enchilada soup (recipe)

With the colder months upon us, I figured I would share a soup recipe for those that enjoy a warm meal during the colder seasons. I have yet to try this particular recipe but it looked good and for those that want something new to add to your recipe book, figured I would share it with everyone. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 1 green bell pepper (seeded and chopped)
  • 10 oz can enchilada sauce
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels (drained)
  • 2 cups cooked chicken breast, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 green onions (chopped)

Directions:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat, add the onion and bell pepper and cook for 5 minutes until the onion is soft and translucent. 
  2. Add the enchilada sauce and cream cheese – break down the cream cheese with a spoon and cook until the cheese is completely melted
  3. Add the diced tomatoes, black beans, frozen corn and stir
  4. Add the chopped chicken breast & chicken broth. stir and cook for about 10-15 minutes. stir occasionally. Do NOT boil the soup for too long, because the cheese could curdle, if the soup is too thick – add more chicken broth. 
  5. Remove from heat, top with green onions and mozzarella cheese & serve.

Enjoy!

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon

      1. Yeah definitely if you like it you should eat it! I’ll try it with tofu or Gardien vegan chicken (their brands meatless chicken is the closest to the actual thing) and let you know how it turns out!
