Crockpot Southwest Chicken Soup

Terra and I loved this.
I served it with flour tortillas but should have done tortilla chips instead.
The only modifications I did were I didn’t add the paprika (didn’t have any) and I used red kidney beans instead of black and pinto. I bought them but accidentally used them in a recipe the other day that I was supposed to use the kidney beans in :P

1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can yellow corn, drained OR 1½ cups frozen corn
8oz tomato sauce
28oz diced tomatoes
1 can fat-free chicken broth, reduced sodium
4oz can green chilis
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts – frozen is fine
1 tbsp chili powder
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp oregano
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp crushed red pepper
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

As early as the night before combine all ingredients in a large crockpot. Stir well.

When ready, cook on low heat for 5-6 hours.*

Thirty minutes before serving pull chicken from the mixture, shred, and return to crockpot.

8 can taco soup

From here…

1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed 1 (15 oz.) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed 1 (14.5 oz.) can petite diced tomatoes, drained 1 (15.25 oz.) can sweet corn, drained 1 (12.5 oz.) can white chicken breast, drained 1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup 1 (10 oz.) can green enchilada sauce 1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth 1 packet taco seasoning

And that’s all there is to it. The only change I made was I didn’t use canned chicken – I added about a pound of chicken breast strips I cut up. It was great but I think it’s safe to assume lots of sodium and preservatives. Served it with tortilla chips, then with flour tortillas the next night – both were great.
