Enchilada Soup

…in slow cooker ! How about that ? Didn’t feel like cooking much or making too much mess , slow cooker sounds good , right ? Less dishes to do and we can just ignore it ! And important thing is , it’s healthy ! Very macro friendly , good amount of protein and nutritious from the beans and tomatoes , the corn , not so much , I like sweet corn , you can always skip if you don’t care .

My family really enjoys this soup , esp when the teenager himself had three cups of this soup , you know it’s good . 
