Enchilada Soup

Not the most appetizing looking soups but I guarantee it's good!

We travel a LOT! When I'm driving to various destinations, I really don't have much of an appetite (sad I know) so I tend to stick to soup and salad on the road. I love to experiment with soups I've discovered on the road and adapt them to my family's tastes. This one is a winner with everyone!

Enchilada Soup

Adapted from Chili's Copycat Recipe

2 c diced or shredded cooked chicken
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed
