Mmmm…Chicken Enchilada Soup

Photographer: healing dream,

Mexican food is by far my favorite type of food. If my family would allow me, we would eat it every night of the week. Throw in a Margarita and I am in heaven. 🙂 So, it should be no surprise when I decide to share my favorite soup recipe, and it happens to be Chicken Enchilada Soup.

This recipe is a keeper. It tastes spectacular and it is easy to make. You can even modify it to cook in your crock-pot. I hope you enjoy.
