This Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup has been in my dinner rotation for a while now. This is one of my favorite soups to serve in the winter and freezes very well!  This Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada soup is loaded with tons of Mexican flavor and a hint of spice. It’s the perfect meal to warm up to on a cold day!

For extra flavor I added some chilis in adobo, ground cumin, chili powder and graham masala.

I like to cook this soup low and slow for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.

Cooking the chicken in the soup keeps it super tender and loaded with flavor. Simply shred the chicken before serving!

This Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup is loaded with all of my favorite Mexican flavors. Cilantro, lime juice, enchilada sauce and black beans. Slightly spicy and full of flavor.

The base of this soup is a blend of enchilada sauce, crushed tomatoes and chicken broth. Black beans, corn, onions and garlic are also added.

This soup is a cross between my Turkey Tortilla Soup and my Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup. Same bold flavors except customized for a slow cooker and made even easier.

There is very little prep needed for this recipe. Simply add the ingredients to the slow cooker and let it do it’s magic!

This is also a perfect freezer friendly meal. I like to make tons of this soup in the winter and freeze extra for easy lunches and dinner. You can also refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 5 days. Or freeze it for up to 3 months.

Did you know February is National Canned Food Month? I partnered with Acme in Wilmington to create a super easy meal incorporating canned vegetables and stock.

Using canned fruits and vegetables is a great way to add vitamins and minerals to your meals. They also save tons of prep time and helps get a healthy meal on the table in no time!

In this Slow Cooker Enchilada Soup I used Acme’s canned chicken broth, diced tomatoes and corn.

    Well what a strange thing: Garam masala! This is an Indian spice, not Mexican and does nothing for this south-of-the-border dish except distract. Maybe a little chipotle or chili powder is all it needs – since the enchilada sauce adds the true kick.
    Also, since it’s mostly CANNED food (say: done) except for the chicken – 8 hours in a slow cooker is excessive.
    So, cut the time in half and skip the mis-spelled Garam masala and you have a nice enough soup.

      You could have been a little nicer with your comment instead of insulting the author. Grab a coke and a smile, lady. There’s too much to be thankful for… you’re breathing, right? I hope you have a wonderful day.
