Chicken Taco Soup – more like a chili and one of our favorite crockpot meals when it’s cold outside!

This Chicken Taco Soup is one of those dump and forget about it slow cooker meals with some taco seasoning for some spice.Chicken Taco Soup - one of our favorite chicken chili recipes ever! the-girl-who-ate-everything.comI was Dorothy for Halloween probably 4 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.Chicken Taco Soup - one of our favorite chicken chili recipes ever!

My sister-in-law Kristy gave me this recipe and I tried it the other night and my husband gave me the thumbs up. My kids loved it too. So I thought here’s our new Post Trick or Treating meal. I love new traditions (p.s. we’ve been making it every year since) and after a “chilly” night in Florida it will be perfect.
You can definitely make your own Homemade Taco Seasoning if you want!

Chicken Taco Soup – A Post Trick or Treating Meal


  • 1 white onion , chopped finely
  • 1 16 oz. can chili beans
  • 1 15 oz. can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 oz. can whole kernel corn drained
  • 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 2 14.5 oz. cans diced tomatoes with green chiles undrained
  • 1 1.25 oz. package taco seasoning
  • 3 whole skinless , boneless, chicken breasts, thawed or frozen


  1. Stir onion, beans, corn, tomato sauce, dice tomatoes, and taco sauce into a slow cooker. *I sautee the onion before to make sure that they are not crunchy. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Top with shredded cheese, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips.

A tip from my sister-in-law Kristy:

“My mom taught me a great trick to shredding chicken. I just removed the chicken breasts from the chili, placed in a bowl, and beat the chicken breasts with a hand mixer. It shreds it perfectly even and fine. It works great when making chicken salad!”
