Copycat Chilis Chicken Enchilada Soup // If you like Chili's Chicken Enchilada Soup, you'll love being able to copycat the recipe right at home! You control the ingredients AND you save money. Win/Win! | Tried and TastyHave you noticed how much I love to copycat recipes around here? I’m borderline obsessed. I just LOVE the amount of money you can save by eating at home. Because I love to cook, we rarely go out to eat. Generally we will go out once maybe twice a month. Aside from that, it’s at home meals for us. Granted, every night isn’t a gourmet meal.. we eat at home more often than not. The funny thing is I actually don’t even like Chili’s. You couldn’t even get the hubs to touch that place with a 10 foot pole. So why would I chose to copycat a Chili’s recipe? Because it’s DELICIOUS!!!

I’m a huge fan of Mexican food. Love chips and salsa. Love guacamole. Love tacos. Burritos. Nachos. And I LOVE enchiladas! This chicken enchilada soups is on point. It’s thick, it’s warm, and it’s comforting. Exactly what you’d like to have in the middle of winter. Unless you are having a winter like we are here in Utah. I’d hardly call it a winter at all. We’ve had the most gorgeous weather I can ever remember having this time of year. It’s absolutely insane and I’m loving every single second of it. The weather may be nicer than usual, but that hasn’t stopped me from having a good comfort meal. This copycat soup is {dare I say} BETTER than the original! Try it for yourself.. and let me know what you think!

Ingredients
  1. 4 large chicken boneless skinless breasts
  2. 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  3. 1 med onion, finely diced
  4. 3 garlic cloves, minced
  5. 3 (32 oz.) cartons chicken stock
  6. 1 (10 oz) can red enchilada sauce
  7. 2 c. shredded cheese
  8. 2 c. masa harina
  9. 1 tbsp. chili powder

  1. Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium high heat. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, sear on both sides. Remove from heat and set aside (doesn't need to be cooked through). Add diced onion and garlic to the pot and saute until aromatic, no longer than one minute (being careful not to burn the garlic). Add in the chicken stock and place the chicken back in the pot. Cover and let simmer for about 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through to 165 degrees. Remove chicken once more; shred. Whisk the masa harina a little at a time with the remaining stock and add in remaining ingredients including shredded chicken (excluding garnishes). Cook for about 30 minutes or until thickened; stirring occasionally making sure the bottom doesn't burn. Serve with your favorite garnishes. Enjoy!

      Thanks so much Nettie, I love when I get to go on my favorite news station – always fun bringing yummy recipes!

    Yvonne, I think your soup looks better than what I am served at the restaurant! Looks delicious! Thank you very much for joining in the celebration of #purebloglove, we enjoy having you each week. I hope to see you on Thursday at 8PM, EST through Sunday night. ~Cydnee .

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. I often cook for crowds. I need to cook next month for a Boy Scout training and a staff of at least 25. I will try this on them. I know we’ve all had it at Chili’s before. I’ll serve with quesadillas and a salad as a meal.

    looks great and similar to another i’ve tried with great tasting results!! Glad I found this, I’ve been craving it!

    On a side note; when I first arrived to your site, i was slammed with ads… I had to click the “x” on 5 ads just to get back to the recipe. I almost hit my back button, leaving your site. But that yummy bowl of soup kept me through the 5th ‘x’…

    1. Yvonne

      Thank you so much for letting me know Jamie! I think there’s something silly going on, because that isn’t normal! Thanks for sticking around – and I’m glad you finally were able to get to the recipe after all the nonsense. Believe me, I’ll get to the bottom of it!

      In the meantime, enjoy the soup and enjoy your weekend!!

      Thanks again,

      Yvonne

    I made this last week. Omg omg omg! It was EXACTLY like chilli’s! My mom is super picky and even she agrees. Thank you for the recipe!

    1. Yvonne

      Woohoo – that makes me so happy! I thought it was pretty spot on, but I may be partial – excited when I hear from others that they think so to! Thanks for stopping by!

    omg so good the only thing different I added one cup of salsa and didn’t thicken with maza I use one can of refried bean s came out great love it

      1. Debby

        Yikes!! I bought Mezcla para tortillas de harina instead of masa harina. That’s all I could find at my Walmart. Hope it works!?!?!?!?

  6. Debby

    What is masa harina and where can I buy it? I’m dying to try this recipe but have no idea what this ingredient is. THANK YOU!!!!
