I absolutely LOVE Chilis' Chicken Enchilada Soup and I was looking for a replica recipe. This one came close, but not quite. Don't get me wrong, it was still great, but it was missing that bold kick Chilis' soup has. I followed this recipe, but substituted the 1 cup water with more chicken broth, used Kraft Three Cheese Blend, and I used Maseca, because my grocer didn't carry masa harina (but I think Maseca is the same thing?). The Maseca added a great corn flavor to the soup. However, I think the three cheese blend is what threw it off. I tried to get the secret from an insider at Chilis, but of course, it turns out it's packaged and they just reheat it for you. I'm also looking for that deep orange color, which according to other recipes I've looked at, just might come from the cheese you're using. Next time I'll be trying it with Velveeta instead of the cheese to see if that gives me what I'm looking for. Definitely look forward to making this again and tweaking it until it comes out just right =)
