This slow cooker soup is bursting with flavor, and is a healthy, satisfying way to warm up. Plus it takes only a couple minutes prep work!
I am so not a fan of cold weather. I like wearing boots and scarves, but actually being cold, or having to scrape windows, or seeing my breath when I go outside, ya…doesn’t appeal at all. And today I found out my kids are totally on board with me. There was this tiny powdered sugar like dusting of snow on the sidewalks, and my kids left for school in full snow gear, from the insulated pants, to the coats, gloves, and beanies. Oh yeah, and snow boots. I guess we are just not cold weather people. Lol.
But, I am a cold weather food person. I love a hearty pot roast, or a steaming cup of cocoa, and I am never going to turn down a fantastic bowl of slow cooker soup! I mean really. I love soup. I love taco soup, I love corn chowder, I love beef stew. And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this easy chicken enchilada soup!
And it really is easy. I had a few not-so-nice comments ripping on me for posting this Caramel Apple Slab Pie (which by the way is probably the most popular recipe on my whole site), because it was not “Eazy Peazy” and so I have been really hesitant to post anything that isn’t excessively easy to make. But the truth is, these are recipes (NOT TAKE OUT) which means there will always be some work/time involved. I try to keep things simple, and not require advanced cooking skills, and from time to time I post a recipe that may not fit the standard definition of “Eazy Peazy” but this one does. It really does! You just cook some chicken and throw the rest of the ingredients in a slow cooker! Eazy Peazy.
So give it a try, and then let me know what you think. Was it easy for you to make?
If you want to make it even easier, dump everything but the chicken in the crockpot and use pre-cooked and shredded chicken (possibly even canned)! Truly just a few minutes prep work for a fantastically easy and satisfying meal.
Another thing to note is you can adjust the spices if you don’t want it to be “hot” or “spicy” you can cut back on the chili powder and paprika. My kids were fine with it as is, but my niece did say it was a little spicy for her. So adjust according to your preference.
