Nap Time Soup with Crock-Pot®

Today I’m sharing a pressure cooker recipe you can make during your kid’s nap time. Or if you don’t have kids, while you nap. The only catch is that it will have to be a power-nap because my new  Crock-Pot® Express Crock Multi Cooker cranked out a perfect chicken enchilada soup in 35 minutes flat. Amazing right? This thing is so good my family might actually think I’ve learned to cook.

If you are a longtime reader of my blog you know that I love to eat and hate to cook. Let me rephrase. It’s not exactly that I hate to cook I just hate all of the work that goes into cooking. 5 bowls here, 4 pans there and before you know it your kitchen is a wreck and all you have made is a turkey sandwich. The only thing that I don’t mind making is something in the crockpot because it is not only easy cooking but easy cleaning. I discovered Skinny Taste a few years back and I love all of her Crock-Pot® recipes. She also has a ton of pressure cooker recipes and up until now I’ve had a Crock-Pot® and a separate pressure cooker. I love being able to start a meal and slow cook it all day but some times I need a pressure cooker for those quick meals when I forget to plan ahead. After we moved into the apartment I had to store the pressure cooker because storage was an issue so I’m so excited to now have one product that gives me the option to pressure cook –as well as slow cook!

Step 1: Sauté onions in the Crock-Pot® Express Crock Multi Cooker until soft, 3-4 minutes. Slowly add the chicken broth, tomato sauce and chipotle adobo sauce (I used green chiles).

Step 2: Add the drained black beans, diced tomatoes, corn, cumin, oregano and stir. Add the chicken breasts; cover and cook on high pressure for 20 minutes then quick release.

Step 3: Remove chicken and shred with two forks. Add chicken back into the soup, adjust salt and cumin to taste. Serve in bowls and top with cheese, avocado and sour cream.
