When I was in college my roommate always talked about this soup, salad and sandwich place she loved called Cafe Zupas. It did not sound appealing to me at the time, so I didn’t ever try them out until a couple of years later when a group of friends chose it for a lunch outing. Once I tried it, I was kicking myself for all those years I had missed out of eating there! They have some of the best soups and salads. Whenever I would go, I would get two things- the Vermont maple blueberry salad and chicken enchilada chili. Unfortunately, they took that salad (my absolute favorite) off the menu, but they still have the chicken enchilada chili.  The chili is more of a soup, and it’s the perfect combination of green and red enchilada sauces, black beans, corn, tomatoes and chicken.  I love to make recipes from restaurants at home and searched for the perfect one for a few years. This recipe tastes exactly like their soup but best of all you can cook it in the slow cooker. Super easy! Zupas Chicken Enchilada Chili slow cooker recipe! This is so good.
