Chicken Enchilada Soup

Chicken Enchilada Soup

Sarah Stone 63

"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."

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!


This was rather bland as written. I added 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tsp ground cayenne, 2 tsp oregano, and an extra tsp garlic powder- with the changes this is a 4 star recipe.


Loved it! Will make again for sure. Only needed more salt.
