All the flavors of your favorite enchiladas brought to life in a delicious slow-cooker soup! With shredded chicken, corn, cheddar cheese and sour cream in a spicy, creamy, green chile and tomato infused broth.
Like a lot of my Tex-mex soups this is delicious as is but made even better with toppings. Garnish with a little shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, a slice of avocado and a handful of crushed tortilla chips to not only add interesting textures but take it over the top and make it a lot more fun to eat. Kids will love picking their own toppings.
The lovely thing about this is that your crock pot can do almost all the work. Your chicken will be fork tender after swimming in that spicy broth for hours making it a cinch to shred and toss back into the pot.
I take one extra step that some people might skip and that is to sauté the onion, bell pepper and garlic stove top before adding them in. This adds a depth of flavor that I would miss.
So, go ahead, dive headfirst into this steaming bowl of semi-spicy, homemade soup. I won’t stop you. You can thank me later.

- In a medium skillet heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions, peppers and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until softened, stirring often, about 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile to your crock-pot add the Ro-tel, chicken broth, chicken, corn, black beans (if using), chile powder, cumin, oregano and 1 teaspoon coarse salt or 1/2 teaspoon fine and about 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Mix in the cooked onions, peppers and garlic.
- Cook on high 3 - 4 hour or low 5 - 6. Remove the chicken breasts to a cutting board. Stir the cheese into the soup. Add the sour cream to a medium bowl and temper it so it doesn't curdle by mixing in a few ladles of the soup broth then mixing it into the soup.
- Shred the chicken or cut into bite-sized pieces and add back to the pot. Taste and season as needed. Cook 1/2 to 1 more hour on low heat.
- Serve garnished with more cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips and avocado.
