Cheese Enchilada Chowder (with chicken added)

Just made this for dinner tonight and Josh said it was his favorite that I've made ever (which is big- I've made all kinds of soup). I didn't have the yellow,green or red pepper (somehow I forgot it at the store!?!) and I added chunks of baked chicken. It was SOOOO good. I got it here. Picture next time. Oh and it has some kick to it- I added a lot of sour cream to my kids dishes and they were fine.

1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 14-1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
1 10-ounce package frozen whole kernel corn
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped yellow, green or red sweet pepper
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded, if desired, and finely chopped
1 19-ounce can enchilada sauce
1 10-3/4-ounce can condensed cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup
2 cups milk
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (4 ounces)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
dairy sour cream (optional)
guacamole (optional)
tortilla chips, coarsely broken (optional)

1. In a 3-1/2 to 5-quart slow cooker combine black beans, tomatoes, frozen corn, onion, sweet pepper, and jalape?o pepper. In a large mixing bowl whisk together enchilada sauce and soup. Gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Pour sauce mixture over ingredients in cooker.

2. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours. Stir in Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese until melted. Ladle into bowls. If desired, top each serving with sour cream, guacamole and tortilla chips.

Sounds so yummy! Mexican soups are my favorite. Did you just use the traditional red enchilada sauce?
