Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Soup

I had so much fun making the Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Soup.  I love all the flavors that came together and look at all these colors. 

Chasing Saturdays, Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Soup, Easy Recipe

I witnessed a beautiful sunset this weekend.  It was hard to capture the colors within the picture.  The beginning of November, and we have had beautiful weather! There is no record freeze yet, either.

The temps may still be warm, but I have been craving soup.  I wanted to try a new recipe for the family.  Chicken Enchilada Soup is perfect!

This was an easy recipe to put everything in the crock pot and let it cook all day.  The flavors came together perfectly!

I placed the chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock pot. If you want the chicken to cook faster, cut the breasts in to smaller pieces.

I then added the enchilada sauce (add hot if you want!),  the green chiles, black beans (drained and rinsed). Instead of using canned corn, I added a bag of our frozen sweet corn from this summer and my own jar of stewed tomatoes.  Add the chicken stock, garlic, salt and pepper to taste and chili powder or taco seasoning.

When it's time to serve, add your favorite toppings.  You can add more kick to it at the end. I used Frank's Hot Sauce in my soup.

Crystal, the soup looks delicious and I can almost smell the aroma of it simmering before ever beginning. Being from Texas, this is "right up my alley".

BTW, sunrises and sunsets have always been my favorite "thing". Thanks so much for sharing a beautiful one with us. Just subscribed to your blog. The love and hard work that you have put into it shines through beautifully!
Wishing you a blessed 2018!
