Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Soup

October 10, 2012 by 30 Comments

Last night I made Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Soup.  With every bite, Big B said, ‘I forgot all about this soup.  This is so good.  I forgot all about it.’  Made this mommy smile!  Topped with cheese and a dollop of sour cream, Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Soup is definitely a family favorite recipe.

Gather all the ingredients together.  Saute onions and garlic, then add sauces to make the enchilada soup broth.  Pour the mixture into the crockpot and add chicken.  Cook 4-6 hours on low, then shred cooked chicken breasts.  Add the black beans and corn and cook for an additional 30 minutes.  Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cheese.
