How To Make crock pot chicken enchilada soup

  • 1
    Heat oil in sauce pan over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic. Saute until soft, 3-4 min. Slowly add chicken broth, tomato sauce, and chipolte adobo sauce and bring to boil. Add cilantro and remove from heat. Pour into crock pot.
  • 2
    Add drained beans, diced tomatoes, corn, cumin, oregano, and stir. Add chicken breasts. Cover and cook on low for 4-6hrs. (Will take longer if you are like me and throw the chicken breasts in frozen!)
  • 3
    Remove chicken and shred with forks. Add chicken back into soup, adjust salt and cumin to taste (I usually don't even need to add salt).
  • 4
    Serve in bowl and top with fat free sour cream, cheese, scallions, and cilantro to taste!
