Not quite a tortilla soup, not quite a taco soup, this comes together fast and gets better overnight. Stores like a dream and has fabulous flavor. Serve with sour cream and cheese on top, with either tortilla chips or cornbread on the side. Or if you're feeling fancy, you could make some paninis with pepper Jack cheese, roasted red peppers, avocados, tomatoes and mushrooms. Very tasty!

  • Cook on Low until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken reads at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), 5 to 6 hours. Remove chicken and shred using 2 forks; stir back into the slow cooker. Continue cooking, 1 to 2 hours more.

  • Stir cilantro into the slow cooker. Cook on Low until flavors combine, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can also cook on High for 3 to 4 hours.

I thought this was good and I loved just using the pack of taco seasoning to season this soup but the taste of the beer was a little overwhelming. I would use half as much beer next time. Read More

This recipe came out pretty good. I used low sodium chicken broth. I had a bigger can of enchilada sauce so I used a little more than the recipe calls for. Thank for the recipe:) Read More
