Every year when summer turns to fall, soups start to sound really good, and using the crockpot feels like a good idea. That is exactly what we have been doing now since the weather turned chilly, and this crockpot chicken enchilada soup is one we’ve had on repeat! It’s so tasty and warming.
We usually make something in the crockpot on Sunday or Monday to have in the fridge for the week. We use it for lunches and easy leftovers for busy days. On Black Friday this year we purchased an Instant Pot, and holy moly is it cool!
The Instant Pot
I really wanted an Instant Pot last year, but decided that we already had a crockpot and probably didn’t need another kitchen appliance. Well, then I thought about it all year long and still wanted one when Black Friday rolled around this year, so we did it! I’ve been playing with it since it arrived, making shredded chicken for chicken salad as well as this crockpot enchilada chicken soup.
I Still Love The Crockpot Though
It’s true. I still love our crockpot, and I’ll tell you why! I love that you put something in and it cooks all day, warming your home with the smells of yummy food. You just don’t get the same effect with the Instant Pot. The benefit of the Instant Pot though is that rather than taking 6-8 hours to cook, you can make this soup in 20 minutes. Yeah – that’s pretty cool!
