I’ve had chicken tortilla soup from several restaurants and tasted quite a few homemade versions in my life but this is definitely, hands down my favorite. There is a small amount of enchilada sauce in this soup and I feel like that is what really takes the flavor over the top.

And I should mention that it is easily one of the easiest soups – easiest meals even – that I have ever made. A straight up set it and forget it, dump recipe. Just dump it all in, shred the chicken just before serving, and top with all of your favorite goodies like tortilla strips, shredded cheese, sour cream, cilantro, or whatever else your heart fancies.

I really can’t tell you how glad I am that I have leftovers.

  • 2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups chicken broth (I use low sodium)
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can yellow corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can diced tomatoes and chiles (like Rotel original)
  • 1 10-ounce can mild enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • toppings: tortilla strips, shredded Mexican cheese, chopped cilantro, limes (for squeezing),


  1. Place chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add broth, beans, corn, Rotel (diced tomatoes and chiles), enchilada sauce, and seasonings. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high 3-4 hours.

  2. Uncover, use two forks to shred chicken (careful not to over-shred, you still want some chunks of chicken) and stir. Serve with desired toppings.

I am not familiar with milk enchilada sauce, where would I find that? This looks amazing! Your website is my absolute favorite, I have tried so many recipes on this site and loved them all!

    I believe it is a misprint. She meant “mild” enchilada sauce.

      Thanks Claude!

    Hi Jaimee, so sorry that was a typo, it’s “mild” enchilada sauce 🙂 You will love this soup!

      Tiffany you were right, we loved it! Thanks for so many great recipes!

Looks delicious and easy! I can’t wait to try this!

I have a similar recipe, but I’ve started to fall out of love with it. I’ll have to try this one and see how it stacks up. Hopefully it will be my new favorite!

You’ve got several misspelled words in your recipe.

    Thanks for the heads up, I’ve fixed those!

Any difference between high or low?

    Nope, just cooking time!

So easy and tastes amazing!

Have you tried making this in your Instant pot?

    I haven’t yet! If you do, I’d love to hear how it turns out!!
