Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup
Your favorite chicken enchiladas turned into an easy and flavorful slow cooker dish. All of the flavor you crave in a bowl of comforting soup.
You know how retailers are notoriously awful about pushing holidays way before their time? Christmas in August. And making matters worse… Halloween rolls right into Christmas, passing over Thanksgiving all together. What gives? My favorite food holiday of the year and they treat it like it doesn’t matter. Let’s not forget how Valentine’s Day rolls right into Easter, skipping right over St. Patrick’s Day. Maybe it’s a lesser holiday but it still deserves to be celebrated. Maybe it’s more that I don’t want to see Easter goodies before my birthday even hits.
I’m sort of flip flopping here because normally I hate seeing stuff early, but a month early isn’t really early if you ask me. So, of course when you want to find early holiday supplies, just because really, they don’t have them. I’m probably 1 out of 100 people that was hoping to find Valentine’s *stuff* at Target this week. I was disappointed to only find Christmas remnants, exercise and cleaning supplies. Not at all what I was hoping for. Move over workout gear, hello baking goodies. Maybe next week I’ll have better luck. They can’t hold out forever. I can’t possibly be the only one excited for the next holiday.
You certainly don’t need me to tell you it’s cold out but brrrr…yeah. I hope you’re all staying warm. And I want to help with that as much as I can. My method is of course sharing must make recipes to warm you up. I wanted to continue sharing some super comforting and easy to make soups! Seriously, slow cooking just makes life so much easier. If you don’t have one yet, get one. You’ll love it! No more standing over the stove waiting for soup to boil. Just toss it and go about your business. Nashville marathon perhaps? ;) Yes, that’s my new obsession. I’m trying to catch up as quickly as I can, which shouldn’t be too hard since they’re only on the second season. Eek. Okay…
If you love chicken tortilla soup, then I promise you’ll love this one just as much… maybe even more. It’s creamy and packed with flavor. Picture your favorite chicken enchilada dish in a bowl of soup! It’s hard to imagine it gets much better. Definitely add this to your Winter recipe plans!
