Crockpot Bean and Chicken Taco Soup

Regardless of how much or how little experience you have had in the kitchen, you are sure to find this a very simple recipe to make. If you are in the mood for a tasty chicken soup, consider this crockpot chicken taco soup recipe which is hearty, warming and so yummy. Homemade chicken soup is always welcome and the whole family is sure to enjoy the taste of this.

There are plenty of chicken soup recipes to choose from but this one is particularly good because of the south of the border twist. This is just what everyone wants to have for dinner on a chilly winter evening. This adaptable soup can be changed however you want just by adding extra meat or veggies, or substituting some of the ingredients for others. Use what you have on hand. This recipe offers an interesting twist on the traditional chicken soup recipe you are sure to already know and the whole family should really like it.

You will need chicken breast, onion, beans and corn, tomatoes and tomato sauce, beer, and taco sauce to make it, along with cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips for the perfect garnish. Follow the recipe below and you will be able to make this wonderful Mexican taco soup, and it is made in the crockpot which means the flavors will be extra mellow and well-blended. Crockpot cooking is also very easy. Simply dump the ingredients in there, remove and shred the chicken when it is done, then put it back in, and give the soup a couple more hours. That is all you need to do to make this magical dish and your reward will be the most fantastic flavor. We are calling this a soup but actually it is somewhere between a soup, stew and chili in terms of flavor and texture.

You will need a 4-quart crockpot to make this, or you can halve the recipe and use a smaller one. Bear in mind slow cooking works best when the crockpot is two-thirds full. Fill it less and you risk the soup sticking and cooking too fast. Fill it more and it might bubbly over or not cook thoroughly. This simple bean and chicken taco soup is ideal for any occasion. Make it once, taste it and enjoy the authentic south of the border flavors, and there is no doubt you will want to make this again, and soon!
