Works for me Wednesday

Once again it is WFMW over at Rocks in my Dryer. Apparently, all I am good at sharing is Crockpot recipes, but who doesn’t love a good Crockpot meal? I got this recipe from an old high school friend, and I loved it. The leftovers would have been great had they not gotten forgotten and sat out all night. It reminds me a lot of Sante Fe soup, but with chicken. So delicious!

Chicken Taco Soup
1 chopped onion
1 16 oz can chili beans
1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 15 oz corn, drained (I also added 1 small can of shoe peg corn)
1 8 oz tomato sauce
1 can chicken broth
2 cans Rotel, un-drained (Use the mild Rotel if you're not a hot-spicy fan)
1 pkg taco seasoning
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat

Place ingredients 1-7 in a slow cooker. Stir in taco seasoning. Lay chicken breasts on top until just covered by other ingredients. Cook on low for 5 hours. Take out chicken breasts and shred and then stir back into soup. Cook 2 more hours. Garnish with sour cream, shredded cheese, and crushed tortilla chips. (I cooked the chicken a little longer than 5 hours to begin with, and the chicken was literally falling apart. I then added it back and cooked for about an hour longer).
This is so easy and I can’t wait to have it again. I hope you enjoy!

This is great for a working mom! My family would devour this. I'm printing it off. And coming back for more of your crockpot recipes. I think I'll just stick you in my reader. Thanks!

I was just sitting here wondering what we were going to have for supper and VOILA! I found your recipe and guess what I'm going to cook:)? I'm going to get started now. Thanks for sharing. I wandered over from Rocks in my Dryer.

On another note, you have a beautiful family and cute blog. I'll be back:)

Sounds delicious. For some reason I find us eating a lot of soups and stews...they are easy, healthy and leftovers freeze well. I copied out your recipe to try...glad it's a crockpot one b/c I need more of those.

Yummy! I have a Beef Taco Soup crockpot recipe that I use, but chicken sounds better. I'll have to whip this out while the weather is still chilly - thanks!
