Chicken Enchilada Soup Recipe

I’m probably going to say this a million times in this post, but this chicken enchilada soup is amazing. It’s filling too. I’m not sure where you live, but here in Michigan, it feels like winter. With the windchill, it was 24 degrees today. So total soup weather. This chicken enchilada soup is filling and the best part is, if you are following Weight Watchers (WW), it is zero SmartPoints for one serving.

Keyword chicken enchilada soup, crockpot, slow cooker
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Servings 12 People

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 10 oz Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce, Hot
  • 11 oz Canned Corn
  • 4 1/2 oz Old El Paso Green Chilies, mild, chopped
  • 29 oz No Salt Added Diced Tomatoes (2 14.5 oz cans)
  • 15 oz Black Beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 med Onion chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 3 tsp Taco Seasoning
  • 1 cup Fat Free Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Plain Fat Free Greek Yogurt

Instructions

  1. You have the option of using either the stovetop or your slow cooker. Place your chicken breasts (raw) in the slow cooker or stock pot.

  2. Add ALL of the other ingredients, but the plain fat free Greek yogurt. Stir.

  3. If you are using the stovetop, bring your soup to a slow boil and then turn on low. I used the "simmer select" option on my stove. Allow it to simmer for about 65 minutes. 

    If you are using your slow cooker, cook on high for 4 hours or low for about 8 hours.

  4. Check to make sure your chicken is cooked. Remove the chicken from the stock pot or slow cooker and shred. Add it back to the pot/slow cooker.

  5. Stir in your plain fat free Greek yogurt and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

*Each serving is 1 cup.

You guys…it’s so good. I was texting my cousin and she asked me if I thought it would be good without the greek yogurt (she likes more brothy type soups). To be honest, it was good, and I would eat it either way, but it was WAY better with the Greek yogurt. If you are thinking, “ew, I don’t want to use Greek yogurt”, I think you could totally use heavy whipping cream. I use that in my Chorizo Chicken Soup Recipe and it’s amazing too.

This Chicken Enchilada Soup is 0 pts on WW

For my Weight Watchers people, this chicken enchilada soup is 0 SmartPoints for 1 serving. With that said, if you choose to eat 2 servings (so 2 cups), and I can’t blame you…it’s that good, then it is 1 point. So technically, this recipe works out to 1/2 a point. But even at 1 point for 2 cups, that’s a good deal! This soup is super filling!

This chicken enchilada soup is definitely a recipe that you want to keep the ingredients on hand. I made it today and everyone in my house had a bowl of it and there is not much left. That makes me very sad! I think what I will do next time is double the recipe and freeze some of it. This is an excellent freezer soup recipe!
