What do you look for in a good Crock-Pot dish? Although I’m usually not one to love having to cook much before it goes in the slow cooker, I’m loving how much protein and fiber is in this Chicken Enchilada Soup recipe. I totally plan to make it! —Jenn

  1. You know, I haven’t checked out Skinnytaste at all yet. Not sure why. This looks fab – I am totally addicted to my crock pot and can be seen on any given day hovering over it like a mad scientist, trying out something new and, I’m always hoping, 😉 amazing.
