Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup!

My sister and I will make meals and then trade with each other containers of food.  Last week she gave me a delicious chicken taco soup that was made in a slow cooker. Taco soup IN a Crockpot….you can’t beat that!

The soup really was tasty and a bit spicy! Delicious.

1 onion, chopped
1 (16 ounce) can chili beans
1 (15 ounce) can black beans
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning
3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts
shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
sour cream (optional)
crushed tortilla chips (optional)


Place the onion, chili beans, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, beer, and diced tomatoes in a slow cooker. Add taco seasoning, and stir to blend. Lay chicken breasts on top of the mixture, pressing down slightly until just covered by the other ingredients. Set slow cooker for low heat, cover, and cook for 5 hours.
Remove chicken breasts from the soup, and allow to cool long enough to be handled. Stir the shredded chicken back into the soup, and continue cooking for 2 hours. (My sister just let it cook all day and shredded it before eating, she didn’t do the 2 hour thing)

Serve topped with shredded Cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.



  1. Beer??? I am intrigued!

    1. Right?!

      It was funny because I didn't know what was in this soup and as soon as I heated it up I could smell the beer! It wasn't a strong taste, but it was there :)

  2. This sounds great!
