Slow cooker chicken enchilada soup


Slow cooker chicken enchilada soup. Creamy, warm and delicious! This recipe has become my new favorite soup! Yes, it even beats my famous taco soup recipe. Seriously, it is that good!

My taco soup is actually what inspired this recipe. The best part about this soup is that it is super easy to make! Put all of the ingredients in the crock pot and let it simmer all day long. You may be tempted to sneak some bites, because your house will smell amazing! The UPS man stopped by when it was cooking and said “that smells SO good!” I told him it wasn’t quite done, or I’d send hime with a bowl! ;)

This chicken enchilada soup is perfect for a cold winter day. Top it with fresh tortillas or tortilla strips, sour cream and cheese. Mix it all together and enjoy my new favorite soup!

    It’s been sooooo cold here (like in the 20s- that’s cold for LA!) and I’ve been so busy. My slow cooker has become my best friend. I can’t wait to try this one! Pinned.

    Oh my goodness… I can’t wait to try this. It looks so darn good!

    Do you drain the corn or just dump it all in ?

    • Jamielyn posted on December 11, 2013 at 10:36 am (#

      I drained the corn, just added that to the recipe. :)

    I made the soup today…mmmmmm. I did have to make a few adjustments because I didn’t have all of the exact ingredients on hand. My hubby loved it, I think that I would either add rice to it or serve it over rice. It is a great winter time soup for sure !! Great recipe.

    I must try this :) like J Stone I will probably serve over rice. Looks so yummy!

      Hope you enjoy it! I love how I can just throw it in the crockpot and have a delicious meal!
