This soup takes the flavor of enchiladas and turns it into a soup that is both savory and hearty. It's good on those blustery winter days, or nippy fall days! It can easily be prepped, frozen, and then popped into a slow cooker.

This can also be made by slow cooking. To do so, follow the steps for cooking the chicken, transfer the water and shredded chicken, plus remaining ingredients to the slow cooker, cook on low setting for 4-5 hours.

My husband and I really enjoyed this soup topped with sour cream sharp cheddar cheese and black olives. I cheated and used the meat from an entire store-bought rotisserie chicken. Because of that change I added one tablespoon of chicken flavored Better Than Boullion to the water to provide the stock that my batch was missing due to using the pre-cooked chicken. I let it simmer on the stove on low for sabout four hours (simulating a Crock Pot) which reduced the liquid slightly and concentrated the wonderful spices. Perfect chicken enchilada soup! Read More

We loved this recipe. Only change I made was for my family - I used a lot less Chilli Powder - I only used 1/2 teaspoon. This still ended up being a hearty yummy soup. Read More
