How to make enchilada soup

Enchilada soup is often made with chicken, cheese, and topped with sour creme.

I keep this recipe really simple, and make it vegan and dairy free at the same time.

One of the base ingredients I used is enchilada sauce, which you can find in almost store or online. Also I added a bit of enchilada seasoning, vegetable broth, and of course garlic. My all time favorite.

Note: I’m a guy who likes hot food a lot.

If you’re sensitive to spicy food, please scale down the optional jalapeños and use less enchilada sauce and more vegetable broth.

Also scale down if you have a really spicy enchilada seasoning.

This will depend on the brand.

Some are mild, some are really strong. I would say start with 1 teaspoon and test from there to your own liking.

Any enchilada sauce will be different depending on the brand. Some a more spicy some are less spicy. Or maybe you have a homemade version that you already love in your family.

I have made this recipe about 5 times now. I’ve made it with the recipe above, doubled it, & tripled it. I always separate half of the recipe into bowls before adding the jalapeños so my kids can eat it, too. It is soo yummy with the added jalapeños, onion, & bell pepper.

What brand of enchilada seasoning do you recommend? I can't find one without milk

Hi Jordan! I bought mine at a supermarket here in the Netherlands which was entirely vegan and made without milk. If you can't find one, please try online or make your own seasoning.

Seriously in love with this recipe. Making it for the second time in the last two weeks. Why? Because everyone loved it and said “make that enchilada stuff again”.

Thank you for another simple yet flavorful recipe. Perfect timing for me for you to post it to your blog since I was trying to decide what to make from what I had on hand last night rather than have to go to the store. Everyone enjoyed it and it was perfect for a quick, one pot, autumn weeknight meal. Disappointingly (for me) there weren't even any leftovers that I could take for my lunch today.

You are definitely right to warn people to adjust seasonings to taste based on the specific enchilada sauce and seasoning mix used as well as individual preference. I didn't even realize there was a prepackaged spice mix called "enchilada seasoning" and had to look it up online to find out what was typically in it then dithered quite a bit over what, if anything, to substitute in its place. Ended up just increasing a bit the spices that I normally use when making my usual enchilada sauce to counter the dilution from the vegetable broth in the soup and the result was excellent though I might cut back on the minced chipolte chili by one next time.

I did vary a bit from your recipe by adding another ingredient: butternut squash. I diced it to about the size of the corn kernels then sauteed along with the garlic in the first step. I had some that I had cut up earlier this week when making another recipe and it needed to be used and the addition turned it into a "three sisters" type of soup,

Thanks again for the wonderful recipes and inspiration.

Thanks for your amazing feedback and making it, Denise! Glad it was such a big hit! I'll have to try with butternut squash next time!
