DIRECTIONS

  • In a large crockpot pour in the green enchilada sauce, drained and rinsed white beans, drained and rinsed black beans, and fat-trimmed boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts.
  • Add the undrained diced fire-roasted green chiles, diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, pepper, coarsely chopped fresh cilantro, and chicken broth or stock.
  • Cover and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours or on high for 3 to 5 hours or until the chicken easily shreds.
  • Remove the chicken from the crockpot and place in another bowl. Add softened cream cheese (cube into smaller pieces and melt in the microwave) into the crockpot.
  • Cover and cook on high for another 30 minutes or until the cream cheese melts completely and is easily stirred into the soup.
  • Remove the chicken from the crockpot and place in another bowl. Add softened cream cheese (cube into smaller pieces and melt in the microwave) into the crockpot.
  • Cover and cook on high for another 30 minutes or until the cream cheese melts completely and is easily stirred into the soup. Remove the chicken and transfer to a bowl. Briskly whisk to get the cheese completely incorporated.
  • Shred the chicken with 2 forks and then add back into the soup.
  • Serve with desired toppings like pepper jack cheese, sour cream, lime, and cilantro.
