Enchilada Soup

For those of you who love enchiladas, this is the soup for you.  I love the combination of chicken, melted cheese, and enchilada-ness topped off with chips and sour cream.  MMMM.  Every time my husband and I make this for other people, they always request the recipe, without fail.  If you are looking for a new soup to try for those rainy days, look no won't go wrong here!
