Copycat Missy’s Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup

My all-time favorite soup!

Donuts, sandwiches and soup, the very best in all three categories, are made and served in the sweetest shop called Missy’s Donuts, Bakery and Deli in my hometown of Guthrie, Oklahoma. Their donuts beat all others, no question. The breads are insanely soft, and the soups divine. My favorite is their Cheesy Chicken Enchilada. For years I’ve tried to replicate it. While theirs will always be number one, this recipe comes close.


  • 2.5 Tbsp. butter (no margarine allowed)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 15 oz. can corn (or 1.5 cups frozen)
  • 1 15. oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 10 oz. can rotel tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 3 Tbsp Williams chili seasoning (order here)
  • 1 Tbsp sea salt
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups chicken breast, cooked and shredded
  • 1 16 oz. block cream cheese
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar, shredded


In a Dutch oven, add the butter, onion and jalapeno and saute over medium heat. One onions are soft, add corn, beans, rotel and tomato sauce. Stir until boiling. Add salt, chili seasoning and chicken broth. Bring to a rolling boil. Add chicken breast and stir to combine. Turn heat to low and add cream cheese. Stir occasionally until all cream cheese is melted. Add in the cheddar. Remove from heat and serve in a coffee mug (soup bowls work too, but Missy’s uses coffee mugs, so I use coffee mugs). Top the soup with cheese and eat it alongside your favorite sandwich.

If you have the opportunity — the very blessed and special one — to visit Missy’s in the one and only Guthrie America, you must go. Sprint or speed, and don’t just walk there. But in a pinch, like living nine hours away from this world renowned establishment, this recipe will do. My family devours it in one setting even when I double the recipe.

See you soon,


P.S. Guthrie is an incredible place to take your family for a weekend vacation. There are fantastic coffee shops, fun outdoor concerts, trolley tours, and it’s Historic District includes over 2,000 buildings. Movie crews frequent it because of the quaintness and charm, and rich history. Peep trip ideas to Guthrie here.
