Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup


Welp, it’s that time of the year.  The leaves have fallen, the temp is cooling down and the night time is rolling in earlier, which means it’s time to start making soup again. Some nights you just can’t go wrong with a warm bowl of soup!  And as I am pretty picky with the type of soups I like it’s nice to find a good recipe.  I adopted my recipe below from Like Mother, Like Daughter‘s blog.  Hope you all enjoy!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5-7 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high
