Low Carb Chicken Enchilada Soup

July 26, 2018Laura

I was really craving soup a couple of weeks ago. Since I love enchiladas so much, I figured a chicken enchilada soup would be delicious- and it was! It’s a lot easier to make than assembling enchiladas and you only have to dirty up one pot. I made this in the Instant Pot for a quick and easy meal that my family loved!

For this recipe you will need chicken breast, a green bell pepper, chopped onion, enchilada sauce, chicken broth, diced tomatoes and some seasonings. Garnish it with your favorite toppings after it’s finished cooking and dinner is served! It’s great topped with shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped green onions, avocado or jalapeno slices. It is on the spicer side, so take that into consideration if you’re sensitive to spicy food. It’s definitely one of my new favorites and will be a part of my regular dinner rotation from now on! Enjoy!
