Easy Chicken Taco Soup
I love all of the color in this yummy and easy chicken taco soup – oh yeah, AND all of the flavors! So many flavors combine together to make the most delicious chicken taco soup. We have our classic Taco Soup we’ve used for years, but it’s more of a dump soup made with everything from cans. You could add chicken to that soup but loved that this version was a bit different and gave us another great taco soup to make. With the spices, the beans, the corn, the shredded chicken, and the tortilla strips, the soup really has it all!
Can we talk about how EASY this taco chicken soup is to make? It’s all made in the slow cooker! All you need to do is cook and shred your chicken before you start cooking the soup. You could boil the chicken, grill it, use a rotisserie chicken, or just cook it on the stove. Then shred it up. Have you ever shredded chicken in a stand mixer? It’s a game changer! Try it next time you need to shred a bunch of chicken breasts. Just throw them into the bowl, turn your mixer on low, and it shreds it perfectly in about 10 seconds.
Back to the soup… once the chicken is shredded, just do the following:
- Put the onion powder, beans, corn, tomato sauce, broth, diced tomatoes, and shredded chicken in the slow cooker. Mix it all together to combine.
- Then turn it on low and cook for 4 hours.
NOTE: If you need it done faster you can also cook it on high for 1-2 hours. If you need it even faster you can also cook it on the stove for 30 minutes in a big pot. Just heat it until its all warmed through and ready to eat.
Taco Chicken Soup
You’re going to love this soup – I promise. You know who else is going to love it? Whoever you make it for!
We love to make this soup when we have friends or family coming over for dinner. It makes a lot of soup and you can always double the recipe if you need to make more servings. It’s great to serve for a crowd because everyone can just ladle themselves a bowl of it and top it with whatever taco tops they’d like. We like to do sour cream, tortilla strips, cilantro, cheeses, etc. This soup is also awesome the next day. Tastes just as great as leftovers!
We hope you love this recipe as much as we do. 😀
