Chicken Stock – Reach for chicken stock or broth, or Better than Bouillon base as another option.

Shredded Cheese – White cheddar or even a Monterey Jack cheese are my two go-to’s.

Step One: Add your chicken into your crockpot. Then season with salt and pepper.
Step Two: Now add in the broth, enchilada sauce, and cook on low as directed. You want to ensure the chicken reads 165 degrees F.

One thing that is nice with this slow cooker enchilada soup is you can store leftovers for 2-3 days in the fridge. This enchilada soup reheats really well.
You will find since it has the heavy cream and the cream cheese it will not thaw well. It will have a curdled texture when you go to reheat it.
If you want to thicken tortilla soup all you have to do is add 1 teaspoon of cornstarch with cold water in a small bowl. Mix well and then stir it into the hot soup. It will begin to thicken.
Chicken stock is made with cooking down bone parts of chicken. Then chicken broth tends to be made with the meat portion of the chicken.
Chicken is done when it reaches 165 degrees internally. Make sure to use a meat thermometer to check the chicken to ensure it is fully cooked.
