Chicken Taco Soup

Found this recipe online and tweaked it to be lower calorie, and family friendly. It is so delicious! Scarlett inhaled her bowl, so even your kids will love it! This is a slow cooker recipe.

3 6 to 8 Oz chicken breast(boneless skinless)
1 can chilli beans
1 can whole kernel corn (drained)
1 can tomato sauce
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 12 Oz beer
1 package of taco seasoning

In crock pot mix chilli beans, corn, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, beer and taco seasoning well. Place chicken breast on top and push down lightly until covered by mix. Cook on low for 5 hours. Remove chicken, allow to cool and shred. Then mix the shredded chicken back into the crock and cook an additional 2 hours. Serve and enjoy.

I also added 2 tablespoons of sour cream, and 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Totaled

Enjoy!

  2. I cooked it on low for 7 hours. At about 5 hours I pulled the chicken out and shredded it, then let it cook an additional 2 hours. And you're very welcome!
