In the fall, when we have kids over after football games, this has to be one of their favorite things to have. The flavor of this soup is really authentic. You can find masa harina flour next to the regular flour or in the mexican sections of the store. This is a 'must have' ingredient.


Are you making this? 
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
4 chicken breast fillets,; skinless
1 small onion,; diced
1 clove garlic,; minced
4 cups Chicken broth
1 cup masa harina flour
3 cups Water
1 can enchilada sauce
16 ounces Velveeta cheese
1 teaspoon salt,; to taste
1 teaspoon Chili powder
1/2 teaspoon Cumin
cheddar cheese; shredded
corn tortilla chips; crumbled
Pico de Gallo
2 medium tomatoes,; diced
1/2 small onion,; diced
1 fresh jalapeno pepper,; seeded, de-ribbed, minced
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro,; minced
1 pinch Salt

Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a large pot over medium heat.

Add chicken breasts to pot and brown for 4-5 minutes per side. Remove and set chicken aside.

Combine masa harina with 2 cups of water in a medium bowl and whisk until blended.

Add masa mixture to pot with onions, garlic and broth.

Add remaining water, enchilada sauce, cheese and spices to pot and bring mixture to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer soup for 30-40 minutes or until thick.

Serve soup in cups or bowls, and garnish with shredded cheddar cheese, crumbled corn tortilla chips, and pico de gallo.
