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.
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.
Add onions and garlic to pot and saute over medium heat for about 2 minutes, or until onions begin to become translucent.
Add chicken broth.
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.
Shred the chicken into small, bite-size pieces and add it to the pot.
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.
