  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • In a large pot, add the chicken breasts or thighs and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer. Cook the chicken until it’s fully cooked and tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Shred the Chicken:
    • Once the chicken is cooked, take it out of the pot and shred it using two forks. Set the shredded chicken aside.
  3. Blend the Soup Base:
    • In a blender, combine the green enchilada sauce, green salsa, and cream cheese. Blend until smooth. If your blender is not large enough, you can do this in batches.
  4. Combine and Cook:
    • Return the shredded chicken to the pot with the broth. Stir in the blended soup base. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally to ensure the cream cheese is fully incorporated and the soup is smooth.
  5. Adjust Consistency and Seasoning:
    • If the soup is too thick, you can add a little water or additional chicken broth to reach your desired consistency. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.
  6. Serve:
    • Ladle the soup into bowls. You can garnish with additional toppings like shredded cheese, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, or a squeeze of lime juice for extra flavor.

Enjoy your bowl of Green Enchiladas Chicken Soup, a creamy and flavorful dish that’s sure to warm you up and satisfy your cravings for something comforting and delicious.
