Chicken Enchilada Soup

Soup is such a comfort food during fall and winter.  I can eat soup every day and be perfectly happy.  This recipe is done in a slow cooker which makes my life so much easier during the week.  I love to throw everything in the slow cooker in the morning and smell all of the deliciousness when I walk in the door after work.  I prep the veggies on Sunday when I do my meal prep and throw everything in a resealable bags.

Enchilada soup is so good and I finally tried doing this in the slow cooker. It is fantastic!  This makes a big batch and I love being able to have this a few times during the week, especially now that it is finally cooling down.

I use my own taco seasoning because I like to make sure there isn’t any weird ingredients or fillers in my spice mix. I have the recipe at the bottom of this post.  It makes a big batch which I store in a large spice shaker container (one of my old Costco size spice containers).
