  • 1.5 lb shredded cooked chicken

  • 2-3 green chiles chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 8-10 oz frozen corn
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups black beans pre-cooked or (1) can
  • 4 cups chicken broth homemade or (2) cans
  • 14 oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 10 oz can red enchilada sauce
  • Shredded cheese


  • STOVETOP METHOD: Place all ingredients into a large pot on the stove. Heat over medium high heat until it starts to boil and then reduce heat and simmer on low for about 20 minutes.
  • CROCKPOT METHOD: Place all ingredients, except for the cheese, into the slow-cooker in the order listed. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
  • Top with shredded cheese right before serving. Enjoy!
  • FREEZER MEAL: This soup freezes well. It is a frequent lunch request from my husband and my oldest son. I portion the soup into two cup containers and I then have lunches ready to go for both of them whenever the need arises.
