Recipe—Crock-Pot Chicken Enchilada Soup

Today is day 4 of my hot & spicy week! My jalapeño plant has been giving me more peppers than I know what to do with so this week I will be featuring five different jalapeño based recipes. I hope you enjoy each and every one! 

This is everything you could ever hope for in a soup recipe. Quick, easy, and delicious! I love using my crock-pot. Not only because it makes dinner a total breeze but also because the house smells so incredibly good when you get home from work. If you are a fan of Mexican food then you will enjoy this. It’s not too mild, and it’s not too spicy, it’s just right. This soup is thick and creamy and warms you from the belly out. Try it with some of my jalapeño cheddar corn bread muffins for a perfect dinner. Heck now that I think about it, it would be perfect for some Monday night football this fall!

Note: If the soup is too thick for your liking add a splash of milk to the crock-pot before serving. If you have leftovers put it in a freezer safe container and save it for a rainy day. It reheats great!
