    Celiac.com 05/08/2014 - I love enchiladas, and I love soup, so this recipe was a natural.

    This soup is best done in a CrockPot or other type of slow cooker. Just toss the ingredients into the pot in the morning, turn it on, and come back around dinner time for rich, delicious chicken enchilada soup.

    • 1 can pinto beans (15 ounces)
    • 1 quart chicken broth
    • 1 can gluten-free enchilada sauce (10 ounces)
    • 1 can diced green chiles (4 ounces)

    • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, as desired

    • ½ teaspoon coriander
    • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • Lime wedges

    Directions:
    Sliced and soak radishes to mellow them a bit.

    Rinse and pat dry the chicken thighs and legs, then place into the bottom of a slow cooker.

    Add the corn, tomatoes, chicken broth, enchilada sauce, green chiles, onion, cumin, cilantro, bay leaf, garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt, and black pepper.

    Cook on Low for 6 hours.

    Remove meat from chicken from the pot and remove bones from chicken.

    Transfer the chicken meat to a large plate, then shred the it with two forks.

    Return the chicken to the slow cooker and continue cooking for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

    Top with crunched tortilla chips, crumble Cotija cheese, avocado, sliced cabbage, lime wedges and radishes.

    Given that the corn and the beans are already cooked when they come out of the can, I have to question the wisdom of putting them into the crock at the outset and cooking them for an additional 6-7 hours. There must be a better way.

    I'm a sucker for traditional guacamole. But, believe it or not, I know a number of people who don't like onions, and a few who don't like tomatoes, so making traditional guacamole is out of the question for them.
    If you know anyone who likes avocados, but shies away from traditional guacamole, try this.
    This simple and quick recipe makes a great dip to serve with tortilla...
