It’s officially slow-cooker and soup season! I love a good slow-cooker soup that can cook all day in the slow-cooker while I do all the other stuff I need to do around the house! I feel super productive for putting dinner in the crockpot early in the day! And this Simple Slow-Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup never disappoints! It’s incredibly easy, amazingly delicious, and will feed a crowd or make for great leftovers. Even better? It’s all the flavors of chicken enchiladas… in a quick and easy bowl of soup!

Ingredients for slow cooker chicken enchilada soup


  • 4-6 chicken breasts
  • 1 12-ounce bag frozen corn
  • 2 cans black beans (drained)
  • 1 19-ounce can enchilada sauce (I use Old El Paso brand)
  • 1 29-ounce can tomato sauce
  • Water, as needed
  • 1 packet taco seasoning mix (I use Old El Paso)
  • Shredded Cheddar (topping, if desired)
  • Green Onions (topping, if desired)
  • Sour Cream (topping, if desired)


This is truly the easiest slow cooker soup recipe of all time. You literally dump all of the ingredients in, give it a good stir, and cook on low for 8 hours.

I don’t even cut up the chicken! Put the boneless chicken breasts in and let them cook whole. They will easily shred when you are done cooking. You can remove them from the pot and shred with a fork or just use your tongs to shred them in the pot. They always just fall apart easily!

Once your chicken is shredded, stir the shredded into the soup to mix well. And you’re done!

Serve with sour cream, chives, and cheese on top if you like! And I like to toast some flour tortillas in the oven to serve warm with the soup!
