“It never rains in Southern California”…..Yeah RIGHT!
Today is a rainy day in Southern California. I honestly don’t know how people live in rainy places. You have got to give them lots of credit!! I mean, I love the staying in, reading a good book or watching a movie, but trekking out to the store is MURDER! Especially the grocery store! Today I was a “Rain Warrior” tonight I will slowly be sipping soup in my slippers! YUM!!
This is an easy, tasty, spicy, good for you soup that is easily put together and cooked in a crock pot while you go about your day! If you love soup, and you are lucky enough to have a husband who will eat soup for dinner, (which is a NO! NO! in my family because “Soup’s not Dinner, it’s a starter” ) consider yourself a lucky girl! (My husband is great, just extremely picky! Don’t tell him I told you!) Remember, this is a chicken TACO soup, not to be confused with chicken tortilla soup!
To make this spicy soup, you will need the following ingredients:
1 onion chopped
1 (16oz) can chili beans
1 (16oz) can black beans
1 lg can Mexicorn
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
1 (12oz) can or bottle of beer (Yippie!)
1 (10oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 (1.25) pkg taco seasoning
3 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts
Shredded cheddar cheese
crushed tortilla chips
In the crock pot, add the onion,
the chili beans,
and taco seasoning.
Stir to combine.
Add chicken and cook in your crock pot on low heat for 5 hours.
Remove chicken and allow to cool just enough to handle. Dice or shred and return to soup.
Serve soup in cups or bowls depending on weather you will serve it as a meal or a starter.
Top with your favs! Tortilla chips, cheese, sour cream, avocado or cilantro! I like to add more heat, so I add hot sauce too!
