I make this in the crockpot about once a month. I use organic chicken broth and homemade taco seasoning. This can be easily made to stretch by throwing in a drained/rinsed can of corn and a drained/rinsed can of black beans. I like to top it with deep fried tortilla chips and a dollop of sour cream.

Very good healthy. I used homemade chicken broth and cooked chicken. Instead of a package of taco seasoning I sprinkled a little sea salt black pepper chili powder onion powder garlic powder paprika cumin and oregano over the chicken broth. Read More

I converted this recipe into a crock pot dinner that worked out great! I boiled 2 chicken breasts (whole) until cooked (just a few minutes) and then added them to everything else in the pot minus the cornstarch mixture and the toppings. Then it all simmered merrily all day long. Later I shredded the chicken with a fork and added the cornstarch mixture turning the temperature from low to high for the soup to thicken. I served it with shredded cheese and cilantro like it suggests but also offered Greek yogurt which when stirred in makes the soup nice and creamy. I normally do a lot of complex cooking but we have a new baby (!) so this recipe of can-dumping simplicity was PERFECT for a busy weeknight dinner. Everyone really enjoyed it. Thanks!! Oh P.S.--I also dumped in a can of black beans. Read More

I Seriously can't describe just how good this soup is! Not only is this delicious on it's own you can add to or take out any of the ingredients that you may not have on hand and it will still come out AMAZING! I used home made chicken stock some rotisserie chicken a bag of frozen corn a can of black beans drained and just went with it. I did add in 3TBSP cornmeal that I mixed with water to use as my thickener instead of the cornstarch to give it a nice corn background taste and I also added in about 4 small corn tortillas that I cut into strips and just added into the mix. I can only tell you that my husband can't stop eating it and neither can I! When serving it I put some corn tortilla chips and shredded cheese in the bowl then added the soup on top of that. I LOVE AVACADOS and since they were on sale here I bought one and diced it up to add to the top of the soup. I also added a dollop of Mexican crema to it but my husband went with straight sour cream and LOVED IT! It is truly HEAVEN on earth! So good! Thank you ladyw4kids! Nice job! Read More

This was the easiest but tastiest soup ever! I broke up tortilla chips in the bottom of the bowl and spooned the soup over it. Added a blend of Mexican shredded cheese and used my favorite green Tabasco sauce. I like it spicy! So good! Read More

We liked it. I added a can of black beans to make it more filling used more chicken because we needed more meat for our family used Ro-tel which comes in 10 oz cans so I used two of them...etc. Little changes. I don't see why anyone would not like this if they like the ingredients. You can switch up the ingredients add some extras etc. and have a tasty cost-effective meal on the table in minutes. Read More

Really spicy but oh so good! Family really enjoyed it. They want to try it with shredded chicken the next time. I don't eat cheese so on my bowl I put a dollop of sour cream. The kids also put some crunched up tortilla chips on top. This is definitely a new family favorite. Read More
