Chicken Enchilada Soup in the Slow Cooker

Anyone who knows me well knows I LOVE soup. I eat it year-round regardless of the temperature outside, but when it’s really cold out (like the 4 degrees Fahrenheit that it is currently) I eat it nearly everyday…which means I cook a lot of soup. So be prepared for an onslaught of soup recipes in the coming weeks. Today I am sharing a recipe for chicken enchilada soup that I  found on the Real Mom Kitchen blog. I love chicken enchilada soup, and I love this recipe because it is so delicious and so easy…just throw it all in the crock pot and come back a few hours later!
