Maxwell’s new favorite word is “Brrrrrrrrr!” He yells it every time we walk outside because it is down right chilly in Utah. We have to bundle up to go for our daily walks. The layers help a little, but we still yell, “Brrrrrrr!” ๐Ÿ™‚ It is fun and it helps get our frustration out. I am not a fan of the cold and I guess Maxwell isn’t either:)

To warm up, we have been eating lots of soup. One of our favorites is this Slow Cooker Enchilada Soup. It is easy to make and warms us up every time!

The best part about about this soup, besides it’s deliciousness, is that it’s made in the slow cooker. It takes about ten minutes to prep and then you can walk away and let the slow cooker do the rest of the work.

Old El Paso red enchilada sauce is the base of this soup and it adds a ton of flavor. The soup is also loaded with black beans, corn, tomatoes, green chiles, onion, cilantro, and fresh lime juice. All of my favorites in one big crockpot!

And the fun doesn’t end there, when it is time to ladle up the soup, more fun is to be had because of the TOPPINGS! I am all about the toppings. Some favorites include: avocado, shredded cheese, cilantro, tortilla chips, and Greek yogurt or sour cream. You can also serve our Easy Cornbread on the side. It is the best and so good with this soup!

Let your slow cooker make you this easy and healthy Slow Cooker Enchilada Soup. It is the perfect soup for a chilly day! Enjoy!

  1. Soup is so my jam right now! Even better to save myself some time because it’s slow cooked in the cooker! The avocado on top just makes me want to dive into this RIGHT NOW!

  2. I think we are getting y’alls snow from yesterday! I’m not exactly ready for winter! But this soup, I am definitely ready for a bowl!

  3. Your recipe is close to mine, but mine has shredded chicken in it. Looking forward to trying yours out in the slow cooker as I tend to do mine on the stove top mostly. Have a great day.

  4. This sounds (and looks!) like a great soup recipe. I love the idea of adding avocado. It would give that creaminess I love in a soup without the calories!

  5. I made this yesterday with dinner, subbing in chicken stock, chicken breasts, and some pinto beans in place of one of the cans of black beans. I baked a pan of cornbread to go with it. My husband and my 4th grader both declared it excellent and on the “make again” list. Thanks, Maria, for another terrific recipe!

    Delicious! I made this recipe as written last weekend and it’s very tasty. Next time I might add some quinoa into it to make it more stew-ish. It was just the right amount of spicy. It’s great with avocado and cilantro. Will definitely make again!

    This was really good! Just the right amount of spice/flavor. Very hearty. I will make this again! I had noodles on the side for those that wanted them, like chili.
