Chicken Enchilada Soup

I don’t know whats more comforting than soup on cold, dreary days. It warms you up, its homey, soothing, and best of all completely heart warming. We love soup in this house..whenever its chilly its the first thing my fiance requests, (or sometimes makes himself!) Soup is perfect when you’re not feeling well or when you have someone special who isn’t feeling so hot either, its a great dish to bring to them. Today, food bloggers are virtually sharing comforting food to those in need from the Frankenstorm…aka Hurricane Sandy.

Jenn of Jenn Cuisine and Barb of Creative Culinary encouraged food bloggers to come together to share their comforting dishes that could be delivered to those in need. Not only are many of the victims of Hurricane Sandy without power, but they got hit in the last 24 hours with another storm, full of snow, sleet, and freezing rain. They could all use a little comfort and care.

My fiance and I already donated via our cellphones during the Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert on Friday Night, hosted by Matt Lauer, by texting RED CROSS to 90999. By doing so, you’re donating $10 a time! BUT here is something else you can do. Join the Support for Sandy..

Please help if you can…Many organizations are dedicating themselves to helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

  • American Red Cross is providing food, shelter, and other forms of support to hurricane victims. You can donate directly to the Red Cross or  you can also text the word “Redcross” to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
  • The Salvation Army is also focused on providing food, shelter, and support to victims, and takes donations for storm relief.
  • Feeding America is providing food, water and supplies to those who need it as part of their disaster relief program.

Follow food bloggers support for Sandy on Twitter with hash tag #FBS4Sandy to encourage donations and see everyone’s posts.

Chicken Enchilada Soup

Onto this incredible, comforting Chicken Enchilada soup! It was homey, warm, and so flavorful! It tasted just like a Chicken Enchilada but without all the work! It was a cinch to throw together and so so tasty!

It isn’t very spicy, because the milk tones it down, plus I used mild enchilada sauce since we have a wee one..but if you like some heat, kick it up!  I highly recommend you add this Chicken Enchilada Soup to your dinner rotation ASAP!  You will not be disappointed! Then make a little extra and deliver some to a friend 🙂
