Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup
Masa can be found in the international food section of most grocery stores, but if you can’t find it you can make a flour roux on the stove instead. In a small saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in 1⁄4 cup flour and cook for 1 minute. Whisk the roux into the soup, then press the Sauté button and simmer until the soup thickens.
