1 Medium Carrot thinly sliced

1 Large Red Bell Pepper diced

2-3 Garlic Cloves chopped

1½ teaspoons Ground Cumin

How to make Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup

Step 1: In a large stockpot, melt the butter or ghee and if using, the avocado oil. Heat over medium-high heat.

Step 2: To the pot, add the onion, celery, carrots, bell pepper, garlic. Cook for about 5 to 6 minutes until soft.

Step 3: Add in the seasonings, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and chicken broth. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Decrease the heat and simmer until the veggies are very tender. This takes another 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 4: Take the pot out of the heat. Blend the soup using a hand blender until smooth and creamy.

Step 5: On medium heat, place the soup, then add in the add-in beans, corn, and shredded cooked chicken.

Step 6: Stir until incorporated and let the mixture boil for a few minutes enough to heat the soup up.

Step 7: Into bowls, ladle the soup, and top with any topping you desired.

Step 8: Serve and enjoy!
