Copycat Cafe Zupa’s Chicken Enchilada Chili

Both my friend and I love Cafe Zupa’s. This is a wonderful chain restaurant that all began in Utah that serves soups, saldas, and sandwiches. Food Network star Kelsey Nixon even help develop the original menu and recipes.

So my friend’s favorite soup from there is their Chicken Enchilada Chili. The other day she was talking about how she wished she could make it at home. I took that as a challenge and told her I would find a way for her to make it at home.

This is a nice hearty chili and this at home version is simple to make with your slow cooker. Whether you have had Cafe Zupa’s version or not, you are gonna love the at home version.
