Chicken Enchilada Soup

Hooray for cold weather so we can enjoy delicious soups! And let me tell ya, this is one delicious soup! And it is so easy! I got this recipe from my good friend Launi over on her food blog - I had leftovers of this soup for breakfast it is that good! (And I have wierd pregnancy cravings.)

2-3 chicken breasts (leftover rotisserie chicken works great!)
2 cups chicken broth
1 can red enchilada sauce (mild, medium or hot depending on how spicy you want it. I always use mild & it's perfect for us!)
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. taco seasoning
1 small can diced green chilies
1 tbls. dried onion or 1/4 to 1/2 chopped onion
1 cup cheddar or jack cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
Tortilla chips or strips

-Cook chicken in medium saucepan & shred. Add broth, enchilada sauce, onions, chilies & spices. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes until the onion rehydrates. Stir in cheese & sour cream until melted & incorporated. Add corn & beans & warm through. Serve with tortilla chips or strips.

I usually like to eat this with tortilla chips & scoop up the soup like a spoon with them. But then I discovered these multi-colored tortilla strips at the store & they are divine on top! Perfect cold weather meal!
