This creamy and flavorful chicken enchilada soup is so simple and quick to make. It’s a cheesy, hearty soup that takes comfort food to a whole new level.

It doesn’t seem to matter what season it is, life is busy, especially with kids. As a mom, it is important for me to have some delicious recipes handy that I can make in half an hour or less.

My oldest daughter is a huge soup fan, so I am always trying to come up with new recipes so that we do not get bored of any too quickly.

When I was thinking of a recipe for this post, I was in the mood for some comforting enchiladas, so that was my inspiration for this chicken enchilada soup.

Quick & Easy Chicken Enchilada Soup

I knew the Janes MealMakers Oven Roasted Carved Chicken Breasts would be absolutely perfect for this recipe as they are fully cooked chicken breast strips which are ready in just 60 seconds – the perfect ingredient for a quick and easy family meal!

Simple Chicken Enchilada Soup

Let me tell you, this chicken enchilada soup was a huge hit with everyone. Even my youngest daughter, who does not share her sister’s passionate love for soup, asked for a second serving and to eat leftover soup the next day!

From start to finish this soup is ready 20 – 30 minutes.

It is so easy to make which is awesome because my kids now ask for this soup regularly. It’s become a popular one, one that is often served for a meal when friends are over.

I actually think this simple chicken enchilada soup tastes even a little better the second day – a bonus for yummy leftovers!

Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 1 tbsp oil for frying
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup taco or enchilada sauce
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes (approx 800 ml)
  • 2 ½ cooked chicken breasts (chopped) (approx ½ a package of the Janes MealMakers Oven Roasted Carved Chicken Breasts)

  1. In a pot, over medium heat, saute the diced onion in the oil for approximately 6 minutes or until translucent in appearance. Add the chicken broth and taco/enchilada sauce.
  2. Next add in the can of diced tomatoes and the chopped chicken breasts, stirring regularly. Next, you will add the corn and you will continue to stir until the soup is hot, but not boiling. Once the soup is steaming, you will slowly add in the salsa con queso - (hello creamy flavor!!!) and stir until well mixed, then add the black beans and gently stir. Continue to stir for a few more minutes until the soup is at the desired temperature.
  3. Put soup in bowls and top with shredded cheese. If desired, add a dollop of sour cream/plain yogurt and avocado.

This soup looks amazing! Looking forward to trying it! As for what I would make with the chicken, I think I would try my famous honey mustard chicken, with brown and wild rice, with green beans!
