I don’t know about you…but coming off of Halloween, I need easy today. My Chicken Enchilada Soup is put in the slow cooker first thing in the morning and forgotten about until dinner. It’s as easy as that. Loads of flavor, little work. Happy November, friends!
This recipe serves four.
1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breast
1 (28 oz) can of enchilada sauce
1 (4 oz) can of chopped green chiles
1 (14 oz) can of cream corn
1 (15 oz) can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14 oz) can of diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon chili powder
salt and pepper
1 cup of frozen corn
chopped cilantro, to garnish
chopped green onions, to garnish
shredded cheddar cheese, to garnish (we used a sharp white cheddar)
crushed tortilla chips, to garnish
In your slow cooker, layer in your chicken, enchilada sauce, green chiles, cream corn, beans, diced tomatoes, chili powder and a big pinch of both salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours. About 15 minutes before you’re ready to serve, remove lid and shred the chicken right inside the slow cooker using two forks, and then stir in your frozen corn. Replace lid and continue cooking a few more minutes. After that, ladle soup into bowls and garnish with any combination of cilantro, green onions, shredded cheese and tortilla chips.
Dinner is done.

These are my favorite kind of soups!!!
This is the perfect meal for today. All of your slow cooker recipes are saving me this busyFall!
I love love love soups and could eat them everyday, however it’s super hard to find foods for my semi-picky one year old.. do your kids eat soup okay or do you ever have to have an alternative for them?!

Chicken enchilada soup is one of my favorites! Love how easy this looks!
Instead of the enchilada sauce, replace it with a bottle of beer (IPA or Stout) and a can of chicken broth!

Can’t wait to try this recipe this weekend!!
This is one of my 15yo daughter’s favorites – and she’s a picky eater! Thanks for reminding me to put this one back into rotation. We are FINALLY getting some fall weather in central CA!!
We made this tonight for my parents. Everyone loved it. We garnished with sour cream & avocado:-). So yummy & so easy!! Thank you!!
I can’t handle much “spice” or hotness in a soup.. is there anything I can substitute in place of the chiles or would you say that they don’t make it too hot?!

Chopped green chiles have no heat! You won’t notice them at all!
How many cans of enchilada sauce do you typically use?
