Chili de Pollo con Queso y Frijoles

a/k/a cheesy chicken chili with beans

I made up this soup last year. I was trying to come up with something similar to Chili's Chicken Tortilla soup, and that was reasonably successful, but not hearty enough for my taste. This is thicker, richer... better, in my opinion. A meal in itself, really. Can also be eaten with tortilla chips, as a warm or chilled dip.

Prep and cooking time: 45-60 minutes.

ingredients (all quantities approximate)


Warning: the heat level of the echilada sauce you use will largely determine the overall hotness of the soup. It gets hotter as it ages!
