Like most soups, our chicken enchilada soup recipe is pretty easy to make. In order to get started, you’ll need the following ingredients: a pound of boneless, skinless chicken, diced tomatoes, corn, black beans, enchilada sauce, diced green chilies, chicken broth, an onion, chopped garlic, Cabot Greek-Style Yogurt, Cabot Cheddar Cheese, and baked tortilla chips for a topping. Additionally, this recipe calls for taco seasoning. While you can purchase ready-made taco seasoning at your local super market, you can also make your own seasoning at home rather quickly. For our seasoning recipe, you’ll need one teaspoon of ground cumin, one teaspoon of chili powder, one teaspoon of salt, and ¾ teaspoon of ground black pepper.
