Love chicken enchiladas?

Easy & common pantry ingredients!
I love simple recipes that call for ingredients you’re likely to have on hand. This filling and hearty soup features black beans, chicken, corn, and fire-roasted tomatoes. You can definitely omit or customize any of these ingredients or spices to your family’s taste.
After the soup was cooked, I shredded the chicken and stirred in some heavy cream to make it a little creamier. This is, of course, optional. I also had some masa harina (corn flour) in the pantry from making tamales and added some to the soup to thicken. It also adds a nice corn tortilla flavor that’s YUM. You could always cut up some corn tortillas instead, I think, to get a similar flavor if desired.
