"Make this as spicy as you like by adjusting the Tabasco but add it in at the end even though it is listed as mild the enchilada sauce is still quite spicy! and for those who extreme heat add in a finely chopped jalapeno pepper… This soup is a meal in itself all that is needed is a side salad and bread "

GREAT! Tastes like enchiladas! I made this with tomatoes with diced green chilies, garlic salt and Tapatio instead of Tabasco. I also added in some cumin, oregano and frozen chopped spinach. I did use a 28oz can of enchilada sauce, because I couldn't find a 19oz one. I probably shouldn't have as it overpowered the other flavors. I served it over brown rice and topped with colby/jack and sour cream. It was very yummy and my friend loved it. I think I would like it with more beans, corn and chicken...more like a chili. I think I'll have the leftovers with fresh chopped onion and cilantro on it too. Freddy Cat says thanks for the chicken! Made for the Billboard recipe tag game. *Update: I added a can of condensed tomato bisque to the leftovers and more corn and it made it even better...it also was wonderful with fresh chopped onions on top and we ate it with cheese quesadillas. Yum!
