Soup of the Day... Chili's Chicken Enchilada Soup (Copy Cat)

Today's recipe... Remember... Disclaimer: Some folks don't always follow updated USDA canning methods, they may live in another country where the standards are not the same, they may use heirloom methods passed down through the generations, they may choose other canning methods not recommended. Use this recipe at your own discretion, or adapt it to your own method. I am sharing these recipes EXACTLY as they were sent to me and take NO responsibility for them.

Combine masa harina with 2 cups water in a bowl whisk till blended. Add to mixture to pot. Add remaining water, enchilada sauce, cheese and spices bring to a boil. Shred chicken into small bite size pieces add to pot. Reduce heat simmer for 30-40 mins or until thick. Makes 12 servings. Recipe doubles, even triples well.

Note from Granny: Masa harina is the traditional flour used to make tortillas, tamales, and other Mexican dishes.

  1. Could this be canned if I left out the cheese? Would the masa be OK?

    1. I'd leave the masa out too and add both after heating. ~~Granny
