Crockpot Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Soup

Ingredients
  1. 1 can (10 ounces) green enchilada sauce
  2. 1 can white beans
  3. 2 cans black beans
  4. 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts
  5. 2 cans (4 ounces EACH) diced fire-roasted green chiles
  6. 1 can (10.5 ounces) diced tomatoes optional
  7. 4 teaspoons ground chili powder
  8. 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  9. 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  10. 1 teaspoon salt
  11. 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  12. 2-3 tablespoons fresh cilantro optional
  13. 2 cups chicken broth or stock
  14. 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese softened
  15. Pick your favorite add-ins: pepper-jack cheese, sour cream, fresh lime, additional cilantro
Instructions
  • In a large crockpot (I use a 6-quart crockpot) pour in the green enchilada sauce, drained and rinsed white beans, drained and rinsed black beans, and fat-trimmed boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts.
  • Add the undrained diced fire-roasted green chiles, diced tomatoes (if desired, it's great with or without them), chili powder, cumin, paprika, about 1 teaspoon salt (I prefer seasoned salt), about 1/4 teaspoon pepper, coarsely chopped fresh cilantro, and chicken broth or stock.
  • Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours or high for 3-5 hours or until the chicken easily shreds.
  • Remove the chicken from the crockpot and place in another bowl. Add softened cream cheese (cube into smaller pieces and melt in the microwave) into the crockpot.
