We love Taco Tuesday in our house (heck, we love taco’s any day of the week) and this Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Soup is the perfect spin on a traditional taco night. It’s easy to make (the slow cooker does most of the work) and even easier to devour after customizing it with your favorite toppings! And while we’re at it, don’t forget to whip up a margarita to go with your dinner. I recommend sticking with the non traditional theme and giving this delicious Frosty Orange Margarita a try!

How To Make Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Soup In The Crockpot

Basically you just throw a bunch of ingredients into the crockpot and go on with your day, but for those of you that like directions, here you go…

  • Place 2 lbs (ish) of chicken breast at the bottom of your crockpot. I use frozen, fresh would work too.
  • Pour chicken broth, green chili enchilada sauce and green chilies on top of chicken.
  • Add seasonings (cumin, chili powder, onion powder & garlic powder).
  • Cook on low for 6 hours.
  • After 6 hours, chicken should be done. Remove chicken from crockpot and shred (I like to use 2 forks to quickly and easily shred it).

  • Add shredded chicken back into crockpot, along with softened cream cheese, steamed cauliflower (I use the microwavable bags, just follow the steaming directions on the bag) and frozen corn.
  • Mix well, turn crockpot to high and cook for 1 more hour.
  • While the soup is finishing cooking, prepare your toppings. I like to have a variety of options for my family so that everyone can customize their bowl to their liking. I suggest beans (black, pinto or ranch style), shredded monterey jack cheese, sour cream, avocado and chips for dipping! These are my all time favorite grain free chips.

This soup is great served hot out of the crockpot, but it is even better as lunch leftovers the next few days!
