Honey Lime Enchilada Soup

We had some fabulous friends over for dinner one night and when I saw the mounds of leftovers I asked what the heck I was going to do with everything. She replied with, “Make it into soup!” ohhhhh well aren’t you a genius! So, I did. IT WAS YUM!  Nothing like good friends who help give you a little inspiration!

Can Enchilada Sauce Be Frozen?

Yes, you can freeze enchilada sauce.

When the sauce is completely cool, put it in an airtight container or even a zip lock freezer bag and freeze.

Can Enchiladas Be Made Ahead?

You can assemble the enchiladas up to two days ahead, cover, refrigerate, and bake them before serving.

Or, you can even assemble enchiladas and freeze them for up to 3 months.

They should be wrapped in plastic wrap and then foil and kept in the freezer until ready to bake.

  • I’ve been going back to this recipe for years. Pretty sure it was my first recipe from ohsweetbasil and it got me hooked! I’ve even doubled or tripled it to freeze and it still tastes just as good! Today I thawed our a frozen bag of it and accidentally cooked it for too long so most of the liquid disappeared. We turned it into a nacho topping. Poured it over chips and topped it with cheese. My picky children devoured it. They ate so much that dad will have to make his own dinner when he gets home. Thank you for your amazing recipes that are never a Pinterest or blog fail. You make things simple and quality. And it’s obvious you don’t cut corners and you don’t post random recipes that sound good but don’t end up being that great. Anyway, we love oh sweet basil and when anyone needs ideas for dinner I send them your way!

      • Well it’s all true! I forgot to also mention that my husband is gluten free and I feel like almost every recipe can be made gluten free. Thanks again!

      • Well thanks so much! I wish I was better at GF recipes. I have been working on gluten free rolls for ages and I’m not loving the results. I’ll keep trying!

  • Great idea! love the chicken/honey/lime combo.

  • Have you tried adding those back into your diet yet? Once my infants were 6-9 months old I could slowly add items back in and they were just fine. I'll wrack my brain and see if I can come up with something.

  • the soup looks great,
    although the restrictions sounds like such a pain in the arse !

    you can try asian food, they usually dont add any sort of dairy or nuts at all (:

  • Totally am emailing you now! 🙂 I'd leave it all in a comment, but I'm afraid it might get lost in the spam folder since I plan to include links.
