Has it been absolutely frigid where you all live? We’ve been trying to still get the kids outside here and there to play in the snow, but after coming back inside, we’re all craving something warm and cozy. Sometimes it’s a cup of hot cocoa but soup has been making an appearance on our dinner table more and more often.

It warms you from the inside out, it’s hearty and filling, and most of the time it only requires one pan to make. All things I love!

This Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup with Noodles is a fun mash-up of chicken noodle soup and chicken enchiladas. It gives you all the flavor of chicken enchiladas – Mexican spices, tender chicken, peppers and onions. I added corn for a nice touch of crisp crunch and made it all nice and creamy, because what are enchiladas without cheese? You can even add a sprinkle of cheese on top if you want it to be extra cheesy!

Tip: Like beef more than chicken? Try this with thinly sliced beef or even ground beef for delicious beef enchilada soup!

Then I added the NOODLES. Everything is better with pasta, am I right? I teamed up with Reames Frozen Egg Noodles to fill this soup with thick, homestyle egg noodles. There’s something about these noodles that is so much more satisfying and cozy than dried pasta. It’s probably because they taste like homemade pasta so you feel like you’re in grandma’s kitchen eating a hot bowl of soup.

Reames Frozen Egg Noodles in Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup

Another thing I personally love about Reames Frozen Egg Noodles is that all of their Frozen Egg Noodles are made with 3 simple ingredients: Eggs, Flour, Water.

Reames Frozen Egg Noodles take a little longer to cook than dried pasta, but it’s worth it. It helps all the flavors in the soup meld and the result is undeniably irresistible.

  • 1 cup diced sweet bell peppers (about one bell pepper)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 can (14.5oz) diced tomatoes (with their juice)

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese (extra for topping, if desired)_
  • cilantro for garnish, optional

  1. When do you add the corn and milk?
    The cornstarch is used when…???

    • I’m so glad you commented! It looks like I missed a step when I copy and pasted from my recipe document, I’m so sorry about that! I updated the recipe and that should clarify the corn, cornstarch/milk, and cheese. My apologies!

  2. Why do I need an entire cup of cheese for garnish?

  3. Sorry bout all the ???s but I was thinking of having Hubby make this tonight and he needs exact directions…thanks !

  4. Sounds so yummy – in fact I am going to double the recipe (1) because it sounds so yummy!! and (2) because I want to use the whole package of noodles!! Do you think that would be okay??
