Soup Sunday | Enchilada Soup Recipe

Soup Sunday | Enchilada Soup

I dug into my 3 ring binder of recipes that I’ve been hoarding again this week. This time I found a typed page with only a recipe on it. I, for the life of me, can’t remember where I got this recipe or if it was good. I assumed it was, because I kept the recipe. We were snowed in on Thursday and a warm pot of soup on the stove sounded fabulous… so I went to work. Prep was SUPER QUICK and the soup was a HIT!

    I have never tried enchilada soup, but I love enchiladas so I am sure that I would enjoy it as a soup. I have been meaning to try a recipe for enchilada soup for awhile now and just have not got around to it. I have seen many recipes for enchilada soup, but I have never seen one that includes pumpkin. This soup will be a great healthy recipe to make when we start eating healthy in the New Year. Thank you for sharing!

  2. This sounds delish! Will def have to try. Thanks for sharing.

    I love this soup and so does everyone else. I make it in a crock pot and it makes tons, so I freeze what we don’t eat and have a meal for later. It’s great with mexican cornbread too.

  6. Sarah L says

    Interesting that it adds pumpkin to the soup. Could you taste it or did it just give body to the soup?

    • Hi Sarah,

      My husband had no clue there was pumpkin in it. I think it just thickens it up a bunch. It was yummy!

  7. Terri says

    This looks really good ! I will have to copy down the recipe and try it sometimes … I have not made homemade soup before but this looks simple enough ! Thanks for posting .

  21. Sound interesting with the pumpkin in the soup. I wouldn’t have thought of putting pumpkin in a soup I will have to try this some time.

  22. This sounds good. Is that three 16oz cans of enchilada sauce? Or the bigger cans?

    Great idea! I just had an enchilada today, and it had a green chile Verde. I think adding some tomatillos to this would be a nice addition.

  38. G K says

    I’ve never seen pumpkin in enchilada soup before. I bet it adds a nice texture and sweetness.
