There are levels of heat in enchilada sauces. MELANIE September 2, 2021 at 3:52 pm · Reply We don’t do spicy either. We buy mild enchilada sauce and it is still too spicy. Using a mild sauce in this it is not spicy because there is so much broth but you might try using a can of mild rotel instead. Angie September 1, 2021 at 9:09 am · Reply Try a mild enchilada sauce. Some enchilada sauces are spicy. Donna September 1, 2021 at 9:40 am · Reply I thought it would be spicy. It looks good, but I cannot have spicy either. I wonder if I removed the enchilada sauce if that would take care of the spicy? What could I substitute for the enchilada sauce? Any ideas? Eowyn Walker September 7, 2021 at 9:22 am · Reply I made this last night for my husband and parents and we all loved it! I didn’t have any chicken on hand so I just added extra white beans which worked well. Even my husband who doesn’t normally like “spicy” things really enjoyed it! Gail Henning September 10, 2021 at 5:12 pm · Reply This was so good! I did add a can of diced tomatoes too. I didn’t think it was too spicy at all. Would love to see some recipes using masa, I have a lot left over! Robin November 2, 2021 at 5:46 pm · Reply I so wanted to like this. This is the second recipe I’ve tried from Julia, and I was disappointed once again. It was really bland and had too much liquid. Taylor Gunderson January 18, 2022 at 1:51 pm · Reply Can this soup be frozen since it uses processed cheese?Leave a Comment CancelYour email address will not be published.
