Crockpot chicken enchilada soup....pinned it and tried it

I pinned it and tried it and loved it!

This was an awesome rich, thick and flavorful...not too spicy either, just right. It tasted even better the next day. 

I am so glad I made this soup, it will be a great addition to my soup recipes!

3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoon butter
½ cup chicken broth
2 cups milk
1 can (15 ounce) black beans, rinsed and drained

1 package (10 ounce) frozen corn
½ cup onion, chopped
½ cup bell pepper, diced
1 can (10 ounce) Enchilada sauce

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the  flour, stir until smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat and add the chicken broth and ½ cup of the milk, a little at a time.  Return to heat. Bring to a boil,stirring constantly, until  thickened. 

In a crock pot, combine drained beans, tomatoes, corn, onion, and bell pepper. Put 2 chicken breasts on top.
