    Here is one I use and it is great. I think they are the same recipe. We love this, it is so comforting on a cold day.

    Chicken Enchilada Soup

    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 lb. of chicken breast fillets (approx. 3 fillets)
    1/2 cup diced onion
    1 clove garlic, pressed
    4 cups chicken broth
    1 cup masa harina
    3 cups water
    1 cup enchilada sauce
    16 ounces Velveeta
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon cumin

    1. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a large pot over medium heat. Add chicken breasts to pot and brown for 4-5 minutes per side. Set chicken aside.
    2. Add onions and garlic to pot and sauté over medium heat for about 2 minutes, or until onions begin to become translucent. Add chicken broth.
    3. Combine masa harina with 2 cups of water in a medium bowl and whisk until blended. Add masa mixture to pot with onions, garlic and broth.
    4. Add remaining water, enchilada sauce, cheese and spices to pot and bring mixture to a boil.
    5. Shred the chicken into small, bite-size pieces and add it to the pot. Reduce heat and simmer soup for 30-40 minutes or until thick.
    6. Serve soup in cups or bowls, and garnish with shredded cheddar cheese, crumbled corn tortilla chips, and pico de gallo.

    I saw this recipe in a cookbook of restaurant recipes so I fixed it for supper. It was so good. We loved it. I had a 4 oz can of green chiles already opened so added them-it was a nice addition. I highly recommend this recipe.

    Do you think it would freeze OK?
