Chicken Enchilada Soup

I gotta be honest. I'm not real big on soup in general, but easy crock pot soup recipes are growing on me! This one does require a little prep work to cut up some veggies, but otherwise it is just throwing it all in the pot! This is our FAVORITE soup at our house, and Cass and I rarely get any leftovers because Benton eats them all! I adapted this recipe from

  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups low sodium organic chicken broth
  • 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 8 oz can of tomato paste
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped with seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro (plus more for garnish)
  •  15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 8 oz skinless chicken breasts (16 oz total)

Throw all that yumminess in the crock pot and cook on LOW for at least 4 hours.  Once the chicken is done, I usually shred it in the crock pot, but you can remove it to shred then put it back in if you prefer.
Top with organic Greek yogurt, avocados, scallions, cilantro or cheese- whatever your heart desires!

I always use organic ingredients if at all possible. I like to avoid added hormones, antibiotics and pesticides.
