Nothing beats throwing a few simple ingredients into the crock pot and then ignoring it for a few hours, only to return to an amazing, flavorful, and healthy soup that you just can’t quit. This Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup has been on serious rotation at our house lately. All the flavor of an amazing and labor intensive meal, but without actually doing much of anything!

Serve this with some Tres Leches cake for a truly awesome meal!

This crock pot chicken enchilada soup is amazing and lovely. Its warm and comforting, fairly healthy – if you don’t douse your entire bowl with cheese, that is. And oh, so tasty. It starts with just a few simple prep-steps (pretty much just dumping things in the slow cooker) and then you only need to shred the chicken and prep your toppings when its time to eat. It will take you literally 15 minutes of work total. I don’t know about you, but I call that a win!

You might not believe this, but sometimes even food bloggers get super lazy with their food. I mean, I want to eat delicious things, but I just don’t feel like cooking anything. Maybe its because its cold out. Maybe its because my kitchen is a seemingly never ending pile of dirty dishes. Or maybe its because the second I step foot into the kitchen my children instantly start screaming that they are so hungry they will die, they can’t stop fighting with each other and there are like 12 poops that happen in the time it takes me to cut up the raw chicken. Yes, I just talked about poop on my blog.
