Love this soup! It's super easy and very flavorful! I use green enchilada sause because I like it better. I have made it in the crockpot and on the stove (with rotisserie chicken meat, when i was in a time crunch) and both have turned out great. I share this with lots of people and get nothing but rave reviews!
This is a wonderful soup. To save time I use a purchased rotisserie chicken. After removing the skn and bones, I simmer them to make the broth for the soup. I usually refrigerate the broth and then skim off the extra fat. The only changes I made was using about 3/4ths of the chicken meat, 1 1/2 cups of frozen white corn and adding 1 Tbsp. of sugar along with the spices. I didn't make it in my crockpot, but simmered it on the stovetop for several hours on low heat.
