Crockpot Chicken Soup
I LOVE SOUPS!!! Seriously, there is something about warm, delicious soup recipes and the holidays that make me so incredibly giddy! I think more than anything soup reminds me of the cooler weather which usually means the holidays are close by and that truly brings a smile to my face. There are just so many wonderful traditions to celebrate this time of year, as well as so many delicious recipes to enjoy, like today’s Chicken Enchilada Soup.
This recipe that I will be sharing with you today has to be a NEW favorite. It was SOO easy to make and turned out fabulous!! We’ve always been suckers for Green Chiles and Enchiladas so making a soup version of these things sounded wonderful. This Slow Cooker Enchilada Soup recipe comes from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom.
I ended up doing a simpler version of it and was very pleased with the outcome. I loved it so much I even insisted my mom make it for a church function last week. She said it was a hit! She agreed that it was very simple to make as well. The combination of the chicken, green chiles, spices, corn and cream cheese (and all in the slow cooker) make this recipe irresistible and so easy. You really can’t beat throwing everything in the slow cooker and having a delicious meal within a few hours. Pretty amazing!MY OTHER RECIPES
Once your chicken is cooked, it’s all just a matter of putting everything into the slow cooker. Then, towards the end you add the corn, cream cheese and rice. After that, it’s just a matter of trying not to devour 5 bowls for yourself. 😉
