You can make this soup in a large pan with high sides. Before starting the actually soup, chop up the 3 potatoes into small size cubes. After chopping them, place them in a bowl big enough to fit them in and fill the bowl with water to keep potatoes from browning.
NOW TO THE SOUP.
First, add the olive oil into the pan over medium-high heat. Add in boneless chicken breasts and brown both sides(be sure not to cook breasts thoroughly, just brown). Also make sure that the chicken does not stick to the bottom of the pan. After they have browned, set them aside to cool. Add onions and diced garlic cloves to pan. Saute until onions are soft and clear, about 5 minutes(longer if needed). Add chicken broth. In another container, mix Masa Harina with 2 cups of water until mixture has no lumps. Also while waiting, chop up Velveeta cheese into cubes. When broth comes to a boil, add the Masa Harina mixture, enchilada sauce, water, and spices into pan. bring to a boil. Add cubed Velveeta cheese. Stir occasionally to keep cheese from sticking to bottom of pan. Cut up chicken breasts into bite size cubes or strips. After the Velveeta cheese has thoroughly mixed with everything, add the chicken to the pot and set heat to simmer. Simmer for approximately 35 minutes.
After the 35 minutes drain water from potatoes and add potatoes to soup. Simmer for another 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are soft.
Tortilla strips (OPTIONAL)
Fill medium skillet up with enough oil to fry the tortilla strips. Heat oil to high. Add small handfuls of tortilla strips to skillet. Fry strips until they are done or to the consumers consistency. Place aside and add to soup.
Add cheese, sour cream, and avocados if desired.
Be sure to only brown the chicken and not let it burn at all. If the chicken burns you will taste it in the soup.
