If you like Chili's popular soup, I think you will like this recipe. I had very good luck with it. I prefer to bake my chicken wrapped in a little foil and shred it so that is how I prepared it for this recipe. I also used an extra can of chicken broth instead of the cup of water to add to the soup. I had mild enchilada sauce so I added extra chili powder and a little red pepper to give the soup a little more kick. Mesa de Harina is easy to find where I live and I often use it to thicken and add flavor to our favorite chili. I gradually added the Mesa to the 2 cups of water and whisked it until it was smooth. I gradually added the Mesa/Water mixture to the soup and whisked the soup in the pot. I added the entire amount but you could easily omit some of it if the soup becomes too thick. I did not have any problems with the texture being too gritty as mentioned in some of the less favorable reviews. I did not add the shredded cheese, allowing everyone to add it to their individual bowls of soup.
