Easy Peasy Chicken Enchilada Soup
Easy Peasy Chicken Enchilada Soup – A delicious and easy soup with so much amazing flavor!
Rainy days call for a delicious bowl of soup! Our weather has turned rainy the last several days and it has us thinking about this glorious soup.
If you’ve been following us for a while you know how much we love Mexican food! Everything from Roasted Pepper Rellenos to Vegetarian Lime Fajitas to Layered Taco Salad, we LOVE Mexican food! This soup is easy to make and full of that amazing flavor we all love.
One trick we use to make this soup so easy is that we make a batch of bone broth, use that as the base of the soup and add the chicken. We always have some cooked beans and grains on hand to make dishes like this easier. This is where the pressure cooker is a real life saver! Even if you don’t have them cooked up beforehand they will be done really quick!
