Ingredients:  

    2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound)
    2 cups chicken stock
    1 1/4 cup (or 1 10-ounce can) red enchilada sauce*
    2 (14-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 (14-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, with juice
    1 (15-ounce) can whole-kernel corn**, drained
    1 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 white onion, peeled and diced
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon salt, or more/less to taste
    optional garnishes: chopped fresh cilantro, diced avocado, diced red onion, shredded cheese, sour cream, tortilla strips/chips

Directions:   

1. Add all ingredients to a large slow cooker, and stir to combine. Cook for 3-4 hours on high heat or 6-8 hours on low heat, until the chicken is cooked through and shreds easily. Use two forks to shred the chicken.  

2. Serve warm, with optional garnishes.   

3. You can also refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 5 days. Or freeze it for up to 3 months.

*If you are making this soup gluten-free, be sure to use gluten-free enchilada sauce.

**If you don’t like that much corn, just use half a can, drained

Non-Dairy Yogurt

Due to being dairy free, I struggle with finding a non-dairy yogurt that tastes like traditional yogurt. I tried this today and was pleasantly surprised by the taste and texture. The blueberry has 19.5 grams of net carbs and 13 grams of fat and protein so I added a few walnuts to create a better macro-nutrient balance. (I found this at Safeway)
