Chicken Enchilada Soup Ingredients

This soup features three of my favorite peppers – bell pepper, jalapeño pepper and Serrano chili pepper.

Bell Peppers are full of vitamin c, more than an orange!

I’m not a fan of green bell peppers. I love the sweetness of the orange, red and yellow peppers.

It’s a personal preference as to which color and flavor you’re looking for – my personal vote is the red bell pepper.

Next, let’s talk about Jalapeño peppers!

Jalapeno peppers give a dish a great flavor without the extra heat!

I love Jalapeño peppers in everything! I usually stick to the pickled variety with that extra vinegary flavor, but this recipe calls for a fresh pepper.

If you want to add a bit of heat to this dish, keep a little bit of the inside of the pepper where the seeds are attached, called the “pith”.

Finally, the Serrano pepper is great if you want extra heat!

Serrano peppers are small, but they pack a lot of heat!

Serrano peppers are small, but they pack in a lot of heat.

I’ve never eaten a Serrano pepper by itself, so I’m not sure what the flavor is like, but it definitely packs some extra spiciness.

Not only is this soup tasty and healthy with all the yummy peppers, but it’s one of those “set it and forget it” recipes.

Yes, you heard me right! This is a slow cooker recipe you can get set up in the morning on your way to work and enjoy when you get home for dinner! It’s that easy!

This Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup is filled with three different types of peppers for flavor and fiber as well as a little heat.

This recipe was a HUGE hit during a previous C1 Challenge, so I’m proud to present you with a soup that will likely become a staple in your household (bonus: your entire family will love this!).

    • Hi Jackie! I’m pretty sure most soup recipes can be converted to using a pressure cooker. I don’t personally own one, so I don’t know what the conversion would be, but I’m sure it’s fairly close to other similar recipes. If you try it in a pressure cooker, come back and let me know how it turns out!

  1. This recipe is really delicious! You’d never know it’s low carb or a “diet” recipe. I’ll definitely make it again! Thank you!🥰
