Chicken Enchilada Soup

Printable Recipe

1 (14 oz) can red enchilada sauce or about 2 cups of homemade Red Enchilada Sauce
1 (14 oz) can green enchilada sauce
~2 cups shredded, cooked chicken
1 T cumin
1 T coriander (I leave this out)
1 T chili powder
1 T smoked paprika
½ T garlic powder
1 can whole kernel corn (undrained)
1 can black or kidney beans (drained)
2 can diced tomatoes (or 3-4 cups of fresh diced tomatoes)
1 can water

In your crock pot, stir together all ingredients. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Top with shredded cheese and whatever garnishes you like (sour cream, cilantro, etc.) and serve with tortilla chips.

Serves 6

Holly's Note:
I found the original recipe at  Eazy Peazy Mealz and immediately it sounded delicious. I modified the recipe like I always do and this recipe reflects my changes. I cooked some chicken and shredded it, but I didn't include the cooking as part of the recipe. I'd also use leftover cooked chicken another time.  I left out the coriander and I used more paprika and made it smoked paprika, not plain. I always drain my beans and used kidney, not black because The Doctor doesn't like black beans. I also used my homemade Red Enchilada Sauce but bought a can of green.   

This was a hit with my family. Easy, tasty and perfect for a wintery evening!
