Low Carb Green Chile Enchilada Soup


Low Carb Green Chile Enchilada Soup

Ingredients

  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 24 oz boneless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1 15 oz jar of Herdez Salsa (You can substitute 2 cans of green enchilada sauce)
  • 4 oz can of diced green chilies
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 2 tbsp of ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp of chili powder
  • 1 tsp of onion powder
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 8 oz block of softened cream cheese (cut up into a few pieces)
  • salt and pepper to taste (depending on the sodium level of your broth, you may need more salt.)
optional: shredded cheese, avocado and/or sour cream for garnish

Instructions

Pressure Cooker Instructions:

  1. Place chicken in the bottom of the pressure cooker insert.
  2. Add the broth, salsa, green chilies, water, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and cumin to pot, mixing everything together.
  3. Set pressure cooker to high for 15 minutes. Do a 10-minute natural pressure release, though if you used thighs, I’ve found a quick release works fine.
  4. Remove chicken from pot, shred and return to pot.
  5. Add cream cheese to chicken mixture. Set pressure cooker to soup/simmer for 2 minutes and do a quick release.
  6. Mix soup with cream cheese, making sure cream cheese in thoroughly dissolved into broth. (If the cc doesn’t dissolve all the way, it’s ok, the soup will still be delicious!)
  7. Top with your favorite garnishes and serve.

Slow Cooker Instructions:

  1. In your slow cooker, mix together the broth, salsa, green chilies, water, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and cumin.
  2. Add the chicken breasts to the crock pot and cook on low for 7 hours.
  3. At the 7 hour mark, remove the chicken to another dish. Shred the chicken and put back in your slow cooker.
  4. Add the cream cheese to the soup mixture and replace the lid. Cook for another 30 minutes and stir the soup, making sure to get the cream cheese mixed in. You may need to cook just a bit longer to ensure the cream cheese is melted completely.
  5. Top with your favorite garnishes and serve.
