How to Make Beef Enchilada Soup

This soup is effortless to make with only a few simple ingredients. Cut stew meat into bite-sized pieces. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add enchilada sauce, condensed cheese soup, black beans, Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies, beef broth, oregano, and shredded cheddar cheese. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Stir to combine. Cover the crockpot and cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours. Garnish soup with cilantro or parsley.

  1. This soup was so delicious!!!! I substituted cooked ground beef for the stew meat because that is what I had and it turned out great! Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe.

  2. Hi Steph! How do you think this would be without the cheddar soup…? I'm dairy free. Do you have any thoughts on what I could use to substitute?

  3. Made this tonight for dinner and it was a HUGE hit – my son (11 years old) literally licked his bowl clean! Thank you for another great recipe!!

  4. I think I am making a quicky version of this tonight using the last of the leftover smoked brisket that we have. Awesome, thanks for sharing, Steph!

  5. An amaIng Crock Potr. I'd love to have control while at work. Multi-tasking is my thing!
