SLOW COOKER CHICKEN TACO SOUP RECIPE

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.

EASY WEEKNIGHT DINNER

My sister-in-law Kristy gave me this easy recipe and it has turned into a tradition to have it on Halloween every year as our Post Trick or Treating meal. I love new traditions (p.s. we’ve been making this chicken recipe every year since I first made it) and after a “chilly” night in Florida it is perfect.
You can make it a few different ways – in the slow cooker or on the stove. It is a quick dinner when it comes to prep and a family favorite.

INGREDIENTS

  • ONION
  • CHILI BEANS – Some chili recipes use kidney beans but we are using chili beans in this recipe.
  • BLACK BEANS
  • WHOLE KERNEL SWEET CORN
  • TOMATO SAUCE
  • DICED TOMATOES WITH GREEN CHILIES – You can use fire-roasted tomatoes with green chiles for a little kick.
  • TACO SEASONING – You can definitely make your own Homemade Taco Seasoning if you want!
  • BONELESS SKINLESS CHICKEN BREASTS – We use breasts but you can use boneless chicken thighs as well. If you have leftover rotisserie chicken you can stir that in at the end if you want.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN TACO SOUP

  1. Stir onion, beans, corn, tomato sauce, dice tomatoes, and taco sauce into a slow cooker.
  2. 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.
  3. Remove chicken breasts from the soup and shred. Stir shredded chicken back into the soup.
  4. Top with shredded cheese, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips. Store leftovers in an airtight container.

STOVE TOP DIRECTIONS:

Simmer on the stove for 30 minutes or until chicken is done.

EASY WAY TO SHRED CHICKEN

To shred the chicken, remove chicken breasts from the chili, placed in a bowl, and beat the chicken breasts with a hand mixer or stand mixer. It shreds it perfectly even and fine. Don’t overshred it though!

FAVORITE TOPPINGS

  • Lime juice
  • Corn chips
  • Sour cream
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Avocado

CAN YOU FREEZE TACO SOUP?

Yes. You can freeze this taco soup before or after cooking. You can freeze this in gallon freezable bags which make it easier for thawing and reheating. The perfect freezer meal.
