Tip for slow cooker chicken enchilada soup recipe:
This recipe like many calls for diced onions. Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions.
If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine if you have children that are picky.
I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.
This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.
This recipe is also delicious with bell peppers. Yum!
It is so easy to add these to recipes when you already have them chopped up and ready to go. I love just grabbing some from the freezer when I need them.
This is a huge time saver and these veggies add a ton of flavor to recipes. It is a win-win all around!

It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.
I also really like this crockpot as well. I use this all the time and it’s great.
My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.
I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing! There are several others on sale here.
Another favorite is this programmable crock pot for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!
I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.
If you prefer the instant pot, you can use that instead. We have even used the stove top to make this soup. It really is just so simple and easy to make many different ways.
