Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup Recipe – creamy, rich soup loaded with tomatoes, green chilis, black beans, and shredded chicken!

This soup is rich, creamy, and delicious – and all you need to do is drop it in a slow cooker and let it do it’s thing!

You can also use pre-cooked chicken, leftover chicken, or previously cooked shredded chicken in this soup for even more flavor.

While this recipe includes black beans, which are not keto diet approved, this soup can be made keto by omitting the beans, or replacing them with diced cauliflower, bell peppers, or other vegetable that fits into your diet’s macros.

I hope you love this soup as much as we do!

What Chicken To Use For Enchilada Soup

If you’d like to skip some of the cooktime of this soup, you can use our easy boiled chicken recipe for delicious, flavorful shredded chicken.

You can also use leftover chicken, shredded, or a store-bought rotisserie chicken that you’ve shredded to bypass much of this enchilada soup’s cooking time.

We’re calling for chicken breasts in this recipe – but you can also use chicken thighs if you prefer dark meat.

If using chicken thighs, remove any fat, skin, or bones before cooking and shredding.
