Soup #12 - Enchilada Soup

Recipe from here. No pictures, but I swear I made it.

This is a picture from the website where we got the recipe.

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup diced white onion (about 1 small white onion)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup masa harina (corn flour)
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 1 1/4 cups (or 1 10-ounce can) red enchilada sauce, homemade or store-bought*
  • 1 (14-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes, with juices (I prefer fire-roasted)
  • 1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chiles
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, freshly grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more/less to taste
  • optional toppings: tortilla chips/strips, diced/sliced avocado, grated cheese, sour cream, chopped fresh cilantro, and/or pico de gallo
and then we had Cocktail Wednesday  (not the same week but whatever) ...

Silver fizz, from here.  We went with this because we had all the ingredients on hand :).


Gin (2 parts)
Lemon juice (1 part)
Egg white (1 part)
Simple syrup (1/2 part)
Soda water  (as needed)

So you take the gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white in the shaker (with ice) and shake.  Pour over more ice and top off with the club soda.  A very light, refreshing drink. and not too sweet.

We had had this drink before, but it was good anyway!
