CHICKEN TACO SOUP
(originally posted 2009)
I was Dorothy for Halloween probably four years in a row as a little girl. Being the sweet freak then as well as now I would eat my Halloween candy as I trick or treated.
Or maybe I knew my mom was going to hide most of it when I got home so I was trying to consume all I could while I had control over my goods.
By the time I came home I would have a massive stomach ache and would belly up my little pigtails to the bar while my mom fixed me warm chicken noodle soup to balance all that sugar.
HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN TACO SOUP
Stir onion, beans, corn, tomato sauce, dice tomatoes, and taco sauce into a slow cooker.
Set slow cooker to low heat, cover, and cook for 3-4 hours on low if your chicken is thawed. May take 4-5 hours on low if your chicken is frozen.
Remove chicken breasts from the soup and shred. Stir shredded chicken back into the soup.
Top with shredded cheese, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips.
STOVE TOP DIRECTIONS:
Simmer on the stove for 30 minutes or until chicken is done.

Lay the chicken breast on top of the mixture, pressing down slightly so that it gets covered by other ingredients. Set slow cooker to low heat, cover, and cook for 3-4 hours on low if your chicken is thawed. May take 4-5 hours on low if your chicken is frozen.
- Remove chicken breasts from the soup and shred. Stir shredded chicken back into the soup. You can add some water if you like it a little thinner.
