KOKOPELLI'S Chicken Enchilada Soup

The fantastic recipe is from a restaurant called Kokopelli that is right by our house, and it's one of my mom's new favorites. It's nice and mild, so it's a good family dish. My girls love it with sour cream and cheddar on top and a side of tortilla chips. Those that like to live on the spicier side can add enchilada sauce (like I did) or pico. The recipe is as follows,

(from the Kansas City Originals website)


Posted: 4/1/2009
Makes 6 servings

½ tablespoon vegetable oil
½ pound of chicken (approximately three fillets)
¼ cup diced onions
½ clove garlic, pressed
2 cups chicken broth
½ cup masa harina
1½ cups water
½ cup enchilada sauce
8 ounces Velveeta
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon chile powder
¼ teaspoon cumin

Add oil to large pot over medium heat. Add chicken breasts to pot and brown for 4-5 minutes per side. Set chicken aside. Add onions and garlic to pot and sauté over medium heat for about 2 minutes, or until onions begin to become translucent. Add chicken broth. Combine masa harina with 1 cup 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 chicken into small, bite-sized pieces and add 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 ad pico de gallo.

Cook Time: 50 minutes


  1. I'm making your mexican crockpot chicken for dinner tonight :-)

  2. I just posted an enchilada soup last week that uses the bottom of the bag chips! This is a little more homemade and sounds fantastic. We adore all Mexican foods.
    Nice Tasty Tuesday addition!

  3. I've been meaning to make some enchilada soup, but I haven't had a recipe.

    Happy Foodie Friday


  4. I love that this uses masa harina!
