Crockpot Enchilada Soup

Rooster Chili

I’ve been majorly holding out on you guys with this soup!! I made method 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 truly typing out a publish. After which I promised on Instagram it could be coming over two weeks in the past. Main fail.

However it’s right here now and also you’re going to wish 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 finest 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 (discuss 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 just a few extra instances because it’s already been made half a dozen instances. This has grow to be our “Sunday meal” — put it within the sluggish cooker earlier than church and dinner is prepared once we get again!



Rooster chili notes

This soup is kind 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 in case you are tremendous delicate to spice, follow the gentle. And as you understand, 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 understand and love! Alternatively, you’ll be able to substitute your personal do-it-yourself enchilada sauce if desired. Simply maintain 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 somewhat chipotle chili powder just a few instances which is scrumptious. You might add in some jalapeños or additional inexperienced chilis — no matter you want that provides a hen chili extra “spice” ought to work nicely on this soup!

Then so far as toppings: Cheddar cheese is a MUST! This soup is severely good with tons of cheese combined 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 recent lime juice and a few cilantro, neither are a “should.” And avocado is only for a dietary increase (plus so tasty on this soup) when you like avocados. The husband thinks they’re somewhat bizarre in soup, however I like ’em in order that topping is as much as you!

Take pleasure in!
