Enchilada Soup with Pumpkin





It's getting cold here!!  So soups like this is necessary for survival! 

This was so quick and easy, I just know I'll be making it again soon!

I cooked extra chicken so that we could eat this along with quesadillas but none of us needed a quesadilla, this hit the spot just the way it was! 

The enchilada sauce and the pumpkin together are perfect!  Go make this.

Enchilada Soup with Pumpkin
Adapted from Hungry Girl

3 cups chicken broth
1 1/4 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced
30 oz green enchilada sauce
15 oz pumpkin
10 oz. cooked chicken breast
1 cup frozen corn

In a large pot, bring broth to a low boil on the stove. Add celery and onion and simmer for 5 minutes until slightly tender. Stir in enchilada sauce and pumpkin. Once soup returns to a low boil, add chicken and corn and mix well. Cook for an additional 3 - 5 minutes until soup is heated through. Add a dash or so of hot sauce to taste.

  6. Tonight was chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles, I am thinking tomorrow night is this, and I just picked up some pumpkin. This sounds fabulous. Did you make it up yourself? What a great way to sneak in something as healthy as pumpkin too and the kids would never know.

  13. Love the stats on this! And I think I can make this South Beach if I just leave out the corn - I may add hominy instead.

    Thanks Debbi!

  18. Vegan; Someone who does eat animals or their secretions (meat, dairy, eggs.) Hope this helps! It's mostly about making veggies the key players in meals instead of meat.

    This recipe kind of freaks me out Debbi. Something about the pumpkin. I've only made one savory dish with pumpkin (pumpkin gnocci) so maybe I just haven't eaten enough of it to be comfortable.
