Instant Pot Chicken Enchilada Soup
This soup has all the flavors of your favorite Mexican dish. And I know how much you love your taco soup (<– that recipe is one of the most visited recipes on the L&Z).
I made this recipe last year for a project I did with BUSH’S Beans and I’ve been dying to share it with you ever since. I’m sorry it’s taken me an entire soup season to share the love… well, unless you caught it on IG or FB because that’s where I’ve shared it before.
This instant pot (or slow cooker) chicken enchilada soup recipe meal preps and freezes like a dream. I’ve been loving my freezer meal prep recipes lately.
Make a double recipe and freeze this soup in a freezer friendly bag or container and you have an effortless weeknight meal.
And I need all the instant pot and freezer meals I can these days.
August was a doozy so I’m all about bring on September! I mentioned on Instagram how we are trying to buy a house. Well… we found our dream house to grow our family in and then it fell through in negotiations.
UGH! That is no fun.
Have you been there? What ended up happening?
I’m learning that buying a house is HARD. Maybe because we are very specific in what we like… and living in Orlando, it’s a melting pot of house types. Like there are some ugly houses out there people and they cost an arm and a leg too.
We’ve waited for a very long time to get our ducks in a row, pay off debt and save for our first house. When we put in an offer on that home we weren’t just tossing something out there into the world, we were committed and serious. This was the one.
That home felt like our home, and we got all the tingly feelings about it.
But here’s to hoping that there’s something even better out there and can we also pray that it comes to us SOON… because I’m over waiting and our lease is up in less than 60 days so it would really be perfect timing. We are ready! How much longer do I need to be patient?
But until then, we will make this easy Chicken Enchilada Soup recipe in the Instant Pot (or slow cooker) and call it a win. I know what I’m having for dinner… how about you?
