How do I make this Low Point Chicken Enchilada Soup?

This soup is super easy to make and can be made on the stove, in a crock pot, or in the Instant Pot. You can use leftover cooked chicken on the stove-which makes dinner only 25 minutes away!

If you are making on the stove you will start by opening all the cans of beans, green chiles, tomatoes, and enchilada sauce.

Place chicken, beans, enchilada sauce, corn, green chiles, tomatoes, taco seasoning, and chicken broth into large dutch oven pot and cook over medium high heat on the stove top.

Cook for 30-35 minutes (if using raw chicken) or until chicken is cooked through.

If using cooked chicken, simmer on medium high for 15-20 minutes. 

Remove chicken from pot and shred chicken ( if using raw chicken) and then place back into the pot. 

Cut the cream cheese into small cubes and add stir the cubes into the soup mixture. 

Then stir in the non fat plain Greek yogurt.  

Continue stirring until the cream cheese has melted completely into the soup. Remove from heat and serve. 

Top with light mozzerella, non fat sour cream, non fat Greek yogurt, avocado, shredded cheese, tortilla strips, for additional points

This soup was AMAZING. My whole family loved it, and my son even had seconds. I made it in my slow cooker, and I will most definitely make this again! Thank you!!!

Just made this and had it for lunch. YUM! I've tried just the broth based, thinner taco soups and they just go to waste because I don't like them so much. This was fantastic! I added a bit of avocado for 1 extra point. This will be my go-to soup to make for friends and guests. Thanks!

I made this the other day in my IP and used canned chicken instead, and it is probably one of the best and easiest soups I've made! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, it will now be a staple in my house, especially in the winter!

If I follow the instant pot directions, could I use frozen chicken?

Hi Robin

Yes, you could use frozen chicken breasts. Be sure to check to see if the chicken breasts have been throughly cooked after the directed time, if not extend the cooking time before proceeding to the next step.

Thanks!
