This soup is absolutely de-lish!  I can’t remember where I saw it first, but I changed it up a bit, so I suppose it’s not important.  It was quick, easy, and sooooo good.  Perfect for a cold fall day!

Combine the following in a large saucepan:

  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 can rotel
  • 1 can chunked chicken breast, drained
  • 1-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Heat over medium heat until heated through.  Serve with crushed tortilla chips (or if you have tortilla strips, even better!).

The rotel will make it a little spicy, so if you’re not down with a spicy dish (my kids don’t do spicy), omit, or add some sour cream after serving.
