Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup – pouring enchilada sauce into the slow cooker

Love chicken enchiladas?

Try making a warm and comforting chicken enchilada soup using your slow cooker! This super easy recipe has very little effort involved, and it’s filled with Mexican inspired flavor everyone craves!  I’m certain it will become a definite family favorite, especially on chilly evenings.

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup – the ingredients on the counter

Easy & common pantry ingredients!

I love simple recipes that call for ingredients you’re likely to have on hand. This filling and hearty soup features black beans, chicken, corn, and fire-roasted tomatoes. You can definitely omit or customize any of these ingredients or spices to your family’s taste.

After the soup was cooked, I shredded the chicken and stirred in some heavy cream to make it a little creamier. This is, of course, optional. I also had some masa harina (corn flour) in the pantry from making tamales and added some to the soup to thicken. It also adds a nice corn tortilla flavor that’s YUM. You could always cut up some corn tortillas instead, I think, to get a similar flavor if desired.

    Yum yum! I have a recipe similar to this that my family loves! This one uses enchilada sauce so I’ll have to give it a try as well. If it’s Lina approved it will please my family for sure!😊

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aw that’s so sweet! Enjoy 😉 and thanks for stopping by today!

    Try adding canned pure pumpkin. It gives it a nice creamy texture.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum – great idea ❤️

    I am unable to print this. Anyone know why? If time trying with this new layout.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh darn! Sorry for the issues! Thanks a ton for bringing that to our attention! We will check it out!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      The print button has been fixed if you wanted to try again!

  4. Chantal

    I used a whole rotisserie chicken from costco, instead. This was amazing! Thank-you! :-))))))

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum! Great idea – thanks for sharing. 🤗

  5. Sally

    This looks really good! I’m a little confused because the recipe calls for a 10 oz. can of enchilada sauce, but a 28 oz. can is shown in the picture.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh sorry for the confusion. All I had on hand was a larger can so I estimated about 10 oz from it, meaning I didn’t pour the whole can in. Thanks!

      • Sally

        Awesome Lina! Thank you for letting me know. I’m off to make it right now!

        • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          Yummy! Enjoy 😉

  6. Sally

    Lina, I just have to tell you that my kids love this soup…and they are very picky. It was a hit with everybody. Thank you so so much!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay!! That makes my day! Mine are picky too about soups. Thanks for coming back to tell me ❤️

  7. Laurie

    Kind of onions? I only have red I need to run to the store. Thanks so much!

    • Laurie

      What kind I meant 😄

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I used white – but I think red would work out!
