Slow Cooker Enchilada Soup: your house will smell amazing while your dinner cooks!
This soup is a bit healthier than my other varieties, I didn’t put any cheese or cream IN the soup. Yes, I sprinkled some on at the end, along with some southwest tortilla strips. 
But c’mon. Don’t you just want to take a big bite?

  1. Those bowls look AWESOME and satisfying! I’ve never tried making an enchilada soup and I know it would instantly be a household favorite! 😉

  2. Since I just got home from work this gave me the perfect idea for dinner… Enchilada Soup from Chili’s… will have to do until I can make this.

  3. I just ate dinner but my tummy just rumbled. This sounds SO good. I can’t wait for it to cool off here – because this is going into my repertoire for sure!

  4. Oh yes, I definitely want a bite – no, a giant bowlful. Sooooo yummy looking. I love my slow cooker too – pinning this one. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I LOVE that this soup can be made in the slow cooker! I can’t wait to give it a try….looks super delicious! 🙂

  6. I’m starting to not trust the slow cooker. The last few dishes I’ve made have been bland.

  7. If you can’t get enchilada sauce, what do you recommend we use?

  11. Now, normally I’m anti-slurping, but there’s nothing I’d want more than to slurp this soup down! It looks so amazing and I love that picture of the bite with all those yummy black beans and chicken and corn. Delish!

  12. I love all of these flavors! This is great that you make this in the crockpot!

  13. Aimee, this looks awesome! I love making soup in my slow-cooker, and this enchilada version sounds amazing. I’m a sucker for anything Mexican-food related–we’ll definitely be making this recipe this fall!

  14. I’ve been dying to make tortilla soup lately- especially after my honeymoon in Mexico where we ate it almost every day! This one looks delicious! And also, I need a slow cooker!


  15. This looks delicious! Pinning now!

  16. I love this soup, and your photos are gorgeous. Thanks for linking to the Weekend Potluck. Have a terrific week!

  17. Yummy! It reminds me of a soup I ate by the gallon when I worked at Cracker Barrel. And I am addicted to my crockpot.


    Erin –

  18. yum this is one of my favorite soups and now I’m so happy to see it in the slow cooker!!

    Is the minced onion “dried” or “fresh?” Thank you! Looks like a great recipe.

    I made this a few weeks ago and served it over some rice and it was so good. Going to make it again tomorrow the whole family loved it!!

  21. Karen

    This is the 3rd recipe that I have made from your blog in the past 5 days. It is another amazing recipe! Loving it! Thank you for sharing!

    Sorry, but I found this soup to be tremendously bland. I used Old El Paso enchilada sauce, which I know is a good brand. This wound up just tasting like chicken, black beans and corn in lightly salted water. Definitely would not make again.
