Crock-Pot Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Soup
I love a good creamy soup but since I am on Weight Watchers I know just how many points can be added to soups to make them creamy. Enter fat free cream cheese (I use Philadelphia brand) and you can get that creamy texture you are craving without a bunch of added fat.
This green enchilada soup is super easy to make with barely any prep-time involved. Just add your boneless skinless chicken breasts to the slow cooker, open a couple of cans of beans (drain and rinse those) and green enchilada sauce, measure out a few spices and let things cook away for several hours. Once the chicken is cooked pull it out and shred the meat. Then add some fat free cream cheese (you can of course use regular full-fat cream cheese if you are not watching your waistline) and let it get melt-y in the slow cooker. Then all you need to do is stir that melted cream cheese into the soup and you have something warm and creamy and delicious!
I like to top individual bowls of soup with a little fresh cilantro (or green onion for those that think cilantro tastes like soap), sour cream (or fat free Greek yogurt) and a squeeze of lime juice which just brings a pop of flavor and takes this soup over the moon!
This recipe makes a generous 8 servings. But leftovers heat up well all week long so you can have easy to warm up 1 point soup for lunch all week long!
