Chicken Enchilada Soup and My Top 10 Soup Recipes


Last week we had the weather change drastically here in Utah overnight. One day it was 89 degrees the next day it was 60 degrees. It’s also been raining off and on. The change in weather put me in the mood for soup. I went to my file of soup recipes I needed to try and found a couple I was ready to try. This one is great because it’s made in your slow cooker.

It is very similar to the recipe for Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup I have posted before. However, it’s amazing how just a few changes to a recipe can really give you a different flavor. This soup tastes just like a chicken enchilada. I also love the flavor that the little sprinkle of pepper jack cheese adds. You can also adjust the heat by what type of enchilada sauce you use. I stuck with mild.

The original recipe came from …And a Cookie For Dessert but I did alter the recipe a little. I am also going to share with you today my top 10 soup recipes. These are soups that I have shared before. I’m sure that as I try other soups my list may change, but as of today here’s what it is. Then make sure to come back tomorrow. I’m gonna share the new bread recipe I served along side this soup in addition to sharing my favorite bread recipe to accompany all those soup recipes. You’ll be all prepared for soup weather!

  • I have a family of 8. Is this recipe enough or
    do I need to double it?

    • I doubled it in my 7-quart crockpot, and that thing is nearly full to the brim! It’s going to feed my 5-person family for at least two to three days (might be more like 4). So I think you should be fine.

  • Incredible Chicken Enchilada Soup – family loved it – perfect for those cold Utah nights… looking forward to trying some of your other recipes. Thanks for sharing.

  • I tried a different variation of this soup but would love to try your recipe! Mine didn’t include any milk, but I topped it with mashed avocado and sour cream. Check out my recipe on my blog!

  • I LOVE this recipe! This is the 2nd time I’ve made it, I follow the recipe except I add a can of green chili’s and some Cumin, Chili powder, and a little hot sauce since we like spice. Top with cheese, sour cream and crushed tortilla chips. To die for!

  • Tried this tonight and added diced green chilies,velveta and cut up some tortillas
    …delish!!!!will def be making this again.

  • Thanks for this recipe! I made it for Soup Night at our church and won! There was barely any left when I went up to try it for myself!!

  • If I had this in a restaurant, I’d be happy with it. I cook it on the stovetop, and it’s one of our faves! Thanks for the recipe! (I’m talking about the chicken enchilada soup, btw)

    • I’ve made this soup several times and it is SO easy and a big hit with my family. I rarely have a package of just 2 boneless chicken breast halves, (usually more like 3 or 4) so it’s more like a stew, which is even better! I use canned tomatoes with green chiles (like Rotel) that add to the Mexican flavor, and the Pepper Jack cheese sprinkled on top gives it a zing! I must admit, I was a little freaked out the first time I layered raw chicken breasts on the veggies, but we were fine, and no salmonela (spelling?) poisoning! I have a very busy job and it’s so nice to come home to dinner “made”. Add a tossed salad and some corn muffins and we’re good to go! Thank you for the recipe!

  • The first night we ate this we both thought it was bland, so the next day I added chili powder, cumin and garlic powder. Also added a small can of diced green chilis. WOW, what a difference! We couldn’t stop eating it! And it’s so easy! Thanks for sharing.

  • GREAT soup! I added a can of cream of corn and used Rotel tomatoes and used frozen chicken and Hubby. Loved. It! I doubled the recipe and all I have left is enough for lunch tomorrow. LOL. Thanks for sharing. I shared it via Pinterest.

  • When ate you supposed to add the milk? The recipe doesn’t specify and I added it right away and now worried I screwed it up :(

    • Sarah,

      The milk goes along with the condensed cream of chicken soup. It is part of the soup recipe, which is printed on the can. If you added milk right at the start, you did the right thing.

  • Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes with us. I love nothing more than a great soup. Last fall I took a “Hearty Fall Soups” class taught by a fabulous Chef. Here is one of the recipes:

  • Made this today and it was delicious! Doubled your recipe because we were having company and it’s already gone. Gonna have to freeze half next time so I have it on standby :)

  • Hello! My husband and I LOVED this! The only difference in mine was another chicken breast and the addition of a can of fire roasted chopped chilies. It was spicy and delicious- mmm!

  • Found this on pintrest. making it for dinner tonight…cant wait to try it!

  • This has become a weekly staple in our house. My husband and kids LOVE this meal. Thanks so much for sharing!

  • how many does the recipe make for

  • Thank you for this recipe! It is amazing! I have made it twice now. It is so easy to make and really, truly delicious. I am eating some now topped with monterey jack, cilantro, and tortilla chips.

  • Just made this soup! Smells great but tastes a little off.. There doesn’t seem to be much flavor. I followed the recipe to the T. Not sure what happened ]:

    • If you need more flavor… add chili powder and ground cumin (traditional enchilada spices)… if you want it hotter (spicier) use rotel for the tomatoes….

  • Hi, I found you through Pinterest. I’m really excited to try your chicken tortilla soup! Thanks for sharing your great recipes.

    Warmly, Michelle

    • Made this recipe using mostly fresh veggies from my garden (tomatoes, corn, green peppers & onion) and used a larger can of enchilda sauce than your recipe called for. Added some spice to the crockpot as well.. taco seasonings, cayenne pepper, and cocoa chili blend. It was fabulous!!! We topped it w/ tortilla chips and sour cream.. I will definatley make this again! One of my favorite “new” crockpot soup recipes!

  • Do you add raw or cooked chicken in the beginning ? Im assuming raw?

    • Made it today with 2 big frozen chicken boneless breasts from a freezer bag.. put them right in frozen.. and they came out fantastic!

  • I found your site off of pinterest. I’ve made the chicken enchilada soup and my husband LOVES it. It’s on the must make again list. I’m going to try the pineapple meatballs later this week. I will be getting your cookbook. Thank you so much for posting these.

  • Can you use frozen chicken breasts for this, or do they need to be thawed out first?

  • Hi there, long time lurker here with my first ever comment! My only daughter is getting married to her lovely mexican boyfriend soon, and I’m tasked with preparing the wedding arrangements! I thought enchiladas would be a nice snack, so trying to find some good enchilada recipes. What do you think? Any other ideas?? Anyway, thanks for your hard work as ever…

  • My family LOVES your creamy chicken noodle soup! I can’t get the link to work anymore though. The redirect isn’t working. Can you help? Thanks!

  • This soup is great. Even my picky husband liked it. I used green enchilada sauce but other than that followed it exactly. Thanks for another great recipe.

  • This enchilada soup recipe is great! Followed the recipe exactly. Served with a dollop of sour cream, some chopped scallions, and crispy tortilla strips on top. Awesome! Will definitely make this one again. Thanks!

  • I've never posted on a blog before, but I absolutely HAD to for this recipe! This was SO freaking fantastic. I've made it 3 times in 2 weeks we love it so much! The first time I stumbled upon it I had no enchilada sauce, so I substituted taco seasoning mix…it was all I had. It was incredible! My family loves it and it is SOOO good the 2nd day.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  • This was wonderful! Thanks so much for a great recipe. It's so creamy and has a great flavor. I might try medium enchilada sauce next time, but my husband loved it so much I'm afraid to mess with it too much :) Thanks for a great recipe!

  • This sounds like an awesome soup! I would definitely love this.

  • I just made this last night. It was so yummy!! I already had some cooked chicken, so I just threw it all in a pot and let it simmer for a little while. I loved it better than taco soup.
