Today, we dive into the comforting world of Enchilada Chicken Soup, a delightful recipe you can prepare and preserve right at home with your pressure canner. Whether you're an experienced canner or just starting, this tutorial will guide you through each step, ensuring a delicious result ready to enjoy any time.

Key Ingredients:

  • Chicken thighs and breasts, for a rich, meaty base.
  • Dried black beans, carrots, onions, and garlic, adding depth and nutrition.
  • Mild green chilies and frozen corn for that perfect blend of spice and sweetness.
  • Diced tomatoes and chicken broth, creating a flavorful liquid for the soup.
  • A mix of spices including chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, oregano, and optional cayenne pepper, to bring the enchilada flavor to life.

Preparation Steps:

Begin by boiling your chicken to cook it thoroughly. Meanwhile, chop the vegetables and prepare your canning jars and lids. Combine the cooked chicken (shredded or chopped), beans, vegetables, chilies, corn, tomatoes, and broth in a large pot. Bring to a simmer, then carefully fill your jars with the mixture, ensuring a generous 1-inch headspace to accommodate the expansion of ingredients during canning.

Canning Process:

With the jars filled, wipe the rims clean to ensure a perfect seal, then cap them with lids and screw on the rings until fingertip tight. Place the jars in the pressure canner, filled with water, ensuring they're not touching each other for even heat distribution. Process quart-sized jars for 1 hour and 30 minutes to ensure all ingredients are perfectly cooked and the soup is safely preserved.

After Canning Care:

  • Let the jars cool undisturbed for 12-24 hours to ensure they seal properly.
  • Check the seals, then label and store the jars in a cool, dark place until you're ready to enjoy a delicious bowl of Enchilada Chicken Soup.
