Crockpot Enchilada Soup

Rooster Chili

I’ve been majorly holding out on you guys with this soup!! I made approach too many Christmas treats final yr (wait; is that even a factor? SLASH saying “final yr” feels form 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 really typing out a publish. After which I promised on Instagram it could be coming over two weeks in the past. Main fail.

But it surely’s right here now and also you’re going to wish to eat this soup each night time 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 rooster enchilada chili. My household is addicted to the rooster 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 turned a favourite! A favourite for me (speak about EASY– only a dump it and neglect about it form of meal), and a favourite from the boys taste-wise. They inhale this soup! I’ve tweaked the recipe a couple of extra occasions because it’s already been made half a dozen occasions. This has change into our “Sunday meal” — put it within the sluggish cooker earlier than church and dinner is prepared after we get again!



Rooster chili notes

This soup is sort of gentle relying on the enchilada sauce you employ. 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, stick with the gentle. And as you recognize, 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 recognize and love! Alternatively, you may substitute your personal home made enchilada sauce if desired. Simply hold the portions about the identical as a 10-11 ounce can (~ 1 and 1/Four cup).

If you need extra spice, I’ve additionally added a bit of chipotle chili powder a couple of occasions which is scrumptious. You would add in some jalapeños or further inexperienced chilis — no matter you want that offers a rooster chili extra “spice” ought to work effectively on this soup!

Then so far as toppings: Cheddar cheese is a MUST! This soup is significantly 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 increase (plus so tasty on this soup) for those who like avocados. The husband thinks they’re a bit of bizarre in soup, however I really like ’em in order that topping is as much as you!
