School has started here and more than ever I’m all about the quick and easy dinner options. This slow cooker chicken enchilada soup is one of our favorites, it takes just minutes to put together and is the perfect hearty meal to come home to after a long day. There’s not much better than soup made in the slow cooker, and this enchilada soup is no exception. It’s a simple combination of chicken breasts, frozen corn, black beans, enchilada sauce, tomatoes, onions and peppers that meld together into a flavorful combination after cooking all day.

This recipe calls for whole chicken breasts. As the chicken cooks it will become ultra tender and simply needs to be shredded with two forks into bite sized pieces prior to serving. This recipe is written for a milder soup. If you prefer a soup with more spice, you can use a spicy enchilada sauce or swap out the standard canned tomatoes with a can of hot and spicy Mexican style tomatoes. Sometimes I use pinto beans instead of black beans for a little variety, and if you don’t have a red bell pepper, a green one works just as well.

My family’s favorite part about this slow cooker chicken enchilada soup is the toppings! I like to put out bowls of toppings so that everyone can make their own creations. Tortilla strips are a must have for this dish, other great options are shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped cilantro, diced avocado and sliced olives.

This soup has all the flavors of chicken enchiladas with a fraction of the prep time. I always keep the ingredients on hand for busy days when I know I won’t have a lot of time to cook dinner. This recipe is a hit with kids and adults alike, and is sure to become a part of your regular dinner rotation!

  8. This was a FANTASTIC  soup! I used canned green chiles instead of green peppers, canned white corn instead of frozen and cooked on high for 4 hours instead of low for 8 and it turned out so well. This was the first soup I have made in a slow cooker and I vowed to make it again before I had finished the bowl. It pairs perfectly with tortilla chips and a side salad. A great meal for the cold winter months that is truly comfort food!

I topped mine with tortilla strips, cheese, fresh tomato, and jalapenos–perfect! Will also add cilantro and avocado to my next bowl. Thank you so much for such an excellent recipe! Easy too! :)
