Slow Cooker Creamy Green Chile Enchilada Soup

The weather has been cold here in Utah and I have been in the mood for soup. I have shared several enchilada soup recipes before but this Slow Cooker Creamy Green Chile Enchilada Soup is different and a welcomed addition to my collection.

This one uses green enchilada sauce, cream cheese, and rice. It’s hearty, creamy, and flavorful! All of what I expect from a good soup! Plus, you throw it all in the slow cooker and let it go.

After cooking all day, you just toss in some corn, cream cheese and instant rice and let it finish cooking for another 30 minutes. Then all you need to do before serving it is remove the chicken breasts and shred. The chicken will be so tender it won’t take more than a minute to shred.

This is slightly different than an enchilada soup I make. I am pinning to try. I love having different versions of soup the whole family loves.
