This crock-pot shredded turkey or chicken enchilada soup has quickly become a family favorite soup. If you love enchiladas, you’ve gotta try this soup! Enchiladas are great, and my family enjoys them, but a more frugal way to have the flavors of enchiladas yet stretch the grocery budget is to make an enchilada soup.
This recipe works great with different shredded meats. Not only is this soup great in combination with shredded chicken and turkey, but I was particularly surprised at how well shredded beef worked in this recipe. The rich enchilada flavors permeate the soup, for a filling main dish, regardless of the meat of choice. Plus, you can make it vegetarian by subbing the meat with a can of black beans.
The prep for this soup is super fast, and is a great way to disguise and use Thanksgiving leftovers.
