Crockpot Enchilada Soup

Hen Chili

I’ve been majorly holding out on you guys with this soup!! I made manner too many Christmas treats final 12 months (wait; is that even a factor? SLASH saying “final 12 months” feels type of loopy…time flies!) that I needed to share earlier than Christmas had come. So treats did take priority over soup. This soup has been photographed and able to share for over a month now, however I hadn’t gotten round to truly typing out a publish. After which I promised on Instagram it will be coming over two weeks in the past. Main fail.

But it surely’s right here now and also you’re going to need to eat this soup each evening for the remainder of this winter!


A number of months in the past I threw my (now married) sister her bridal bathe. We determined to do some soups, salads, a caramel apple bar, and some different desserts. One of many soups was a hen enchilada chili. My household is addicted to the hen enchilada chili at Zupas so I attempted my greatest to recreate it for the bathe. Whereas it was scrumptious, it wasn’t fairly how I wished it.

After the bathe there wasn’t a spoonful left so I needed to re-make it for my boys. This time I modified it up fairly a bit and it tasted even higher than the Zupas chili. Immediately this soup grew to become a favourite! A favourite for me (discuss EASY– only a dump it and overlook about it type of meal), and a favourite from the boys taste-wise. They inhale this soup! I’ve tweaked the recipe just a few extra occasions because it’s already been made half a dozen occasions. This has turn into our “Sunday meal” — put it within the gradual cooker earlier than church and dinner is prepared once we get again!



Hen chili notes

This soup is kind of gentle relying on the enchilada sauce you utilize. I’ve used each gentle and medium. Medium is our private favourite (and never too spicy for the 2-year previous), however if you’re tremendous delicate to spice, keep on with the gentle. And as you realize, all store-bought enchilada sauces aren’t created equal — some are positively extra spicy or extra gentle than others so use an enchilada sauce you realize and love! Alternatively, you may substitute your individual selfmade enchilada sauce if desired. Simply preserve the portions about the identical as a 10-11 ounce can (~ 1 and 1/Four cup).

If you’d like extra spice, I’ve additionally added a bit chipotle chili powder just a few occasions which is scrumptious. You possibly can add in some jalapeños or additional inexperienced chilis — no matter you want that provides a hen chili extra “spice” ought to work effectively on this soup!

Then so far as toppings: Cheddar cheese is a MUST! This soup is critically good with tons of cheese blended in….plus — cheese strings. I additionally love bitter cream — we use fat-free and it’s scrumptious on this soup. Whereas I completely love a squeeze of contemporary lime juice and a few cilantro, neither are a “should.” And avocado is only for a dietary enhance (plus so tasty on this soup) when you like avocados. The husband thinks they’re a bit bizarre in soup, however I like ’em in order that topping is as much as you!
