Ingredients for Low Calorie Chicken Enchilada Soup

It’s easy to make low calorie crockpot soup recipes! Here are a few tips you can use in all of your favorite recipes.

Low Calorie Tips for Slow Cooker Soup Recipes:

  • Skip the Oil… You don’t need oil or butter in crockpot recipes! You can skip it all together especially in soup recipes. So save the calories and fat, and just skip it!
  • Boost the Veggies… No matter what slow cooker soup recipe you’re making, you can boost the veggies. Double them, or add in a favorite (as I did with the bell pepper here) and if you want the veggies “hidden” try to match them to the sauce (again, like I did with the RED bell pepper here).
  • Add in an extra Chicken Breast… I boosted the protein in this recipe for enchilada soup by adding in an extra chicken breast. You can do this in all your favorite chicken slow cooker soup recipes!
