Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup
What better way to warm up this winter than with this Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup. The moment I posted this easy Creamy Enchilada Soup to my Instagram stories, people went crazy asking me for the recipe! It is not only simple but it is absolutely delicious. With two little kids every recipe I make needs to be easy and of course not lack any flavor. This one checks off both of those boxes. You can make this recipe with the instant pot or crockpot giving you the best of both time saving kitchen device worlds.
This Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup is spicy yet creamy as it’s made with cream cheese and lots of delicious spices. Between the shredded chicken, cream cheese, corn and beans you are lacking zero flavor with this recipe. The best part, you’re going to be shocked at the serving size for under 300 calories.
You can store this soup in the fridge and reheat throughout the week or freeze in my favorite Souper Cubes in portioned out servings to enjoy later. You can just finish it all in one night with your family!!
I put a poll up in my Instagram stories last week to see what recipes you wanted me to share from the January Shred program, it was between this recipe and the Jambalaya, two of my favorites. The Instagram fam has spoken and the winner was the Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do!
For a dairy free alternative sub cream cheese with 1/3 cup of coconut milk!!
This easy Creamy Chicken Enchilada soup is full of flavor and makes crazy weeknight meals a breeze.
SHRED. what is it? SHRED is a 30 day fitness and nutrition program. It is the program that jump started my fitness journey after having my second daughter and it is the program that ultimately changed my outlook on food.
What does the program include?
Full access to Emma’s app with the following:
- Custom macro setting for fat loss with calorie cycling option.
- Comprehensive guide with detailed information on macros.
- A 4 week workout program. Both home & gym programs with video demos. I personally do the home workouts.
- Track your progress of your workouts via the app! You can record weight, reps, rest time, notes & more!
- Sample meal plan (full day of eating) for each calorie level.
- Lifetime access to the program (you keep the workouts & recipes forever). This includes mine!
- Recipes with macro breakdown and food list by macros, including exclusive recipes by ME!
My experience with SHRED is really what brought me here!
Tracking your macros seems overwhelming, I will be the first to admit that. However, once you get the hang of it, it really is quite simple. Having delicious recipes and foods you enjoy eating is the key for me, which is why I love bringing you these macro friendly recipes! Tracking your macros also helps to learn portions, which a lot of us think we know … but might not actually know and that can be very eye opening.
Now, let me be very clear, this is not a weight loss add. This is simply the program I did to lose unwanted fat and through this program I have been able to successfully keep it off. SHRED is the program that got me started and encouraged me to keep going. The fact that it has come full circle and I now provide recipes for the program – still blows my mind.
If you’re interested in macros and not sure where to start, I would definitely suggest checking out Emma’s EmPowered Radio podcast!
