Chicken enchilada soup

Eeek! I am so excited its soup season again! I have so many soups I want to share with you. But alas, I will take it slow and spread them out over the long, cold winter to come!

The ingredients in this recipe remind me a lot of the Creamy Enchilada Casserole my mom used to make when I was a kid, except it’s SOUP STYLE!

The stand out ingredients in this soup are beef broth and steak sauce.  They really kick this soup up a notch and will make your guests wonder what you did to get such a rich flavored soup!

We feed seven on most nights, Dale and I, Papa Don and four kids.  So I doubled it, and I am glad I did, because we barely had a bowl left!

Served with corn chips and freshly grated mozzarella cheese, this soup is sure to make you go weak in the knees.
