Lime Enchilada Chicken Soup

I love Enchilada Sauce! Can’t you tell with my Enchilada Chicken in the Slow Cooker and my Enchilada Meatballs. I think everyone loves Echilada Sauce, those are two of my most popular posts. Well now it is soup season so what came to mind! Enchilada Chicken Soup of course. I saw the limes at the store loving the thought of their fresh, bright flavor added to the soup and yum!!


I actually made up a batch of soup on Sunday and packaged it up in single servings to eat throughout the week for lunch or dinner. This is one of my favorite meal planning tricks for weeks I know I will be too busy to be cooking much.
