Crockpot Enchilada Soup

I’ve been doing Jillian Michael’s 30 Day shred now for 10 days and so far I’ve lost 2 inches off my waste and I’m starting to develop some muscle in my arms. I’ve been trying to eat less too and some days, I just can’t help myself though. Just an FYI, in case any of you are thinking of starting that DVD. I know it’s pretty popular on the Weight Watcher boards.

This enchilada soup was fantastic. It was nice and spicy. I left out the butter, flour, and milk because when I make enchiladas, I don’t use any of those ingredients. Just enchilada sauce, chicken, flour tortillas and cheese. Just those ingredients alone wouldn’t make a very good soup now wouldn’t it? I added a jalapeno instead of a diced pepper. One serving is about 1 1/2 cups. Anything extra like chips, cheese, and sour cream is extra.

Look at all those veggies. ;)
