Enchilada Soup

Photo: psfreeman

This enchilada soup packs a punch. A Mexican dinner that's ready for cooking in 10 minutes. Transfer corn from freezer to refrigerator when chicken starts to cook. It will be completely thawed by the time it is added to the slow cooker. Vary the heat in this soup by using mild or hot enchilada sauce and serving with red pepper sauce on the side. Additions/Substitutions: one can of nacho cheese soup, pinto beans instead of black beans, and one can of fire roasted diced tomatoes (with juice).
