Chicken Taco Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup: easy weeknight meal! #crockpot

This is one fabulous crockpot soup! I love soup, and I love my crockpot, so I made you all this tasty little concoction. I don’t know if it actually tastes like tacos, but it has taco seasoning. It’s far different from my tortilla soup (which I’m craving and will be making soon, and sharing that recipe as well).

This makes a lot of soup, so be ready to eat! Or invite friends over for dinner. Or invite me over, after all, I shared the recipe with you! Tomorrow at 6? Perfect.

Chicken Taco Soup

Ingredients

  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 16 oz jar salsa (use your favorite here- I just use ChiChi’s medium Original)
  • 32 oz chicken stock
  • 2- 11oz cans Mexicorn, drained
  • 1 1/2 oz package taco seasoning
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 lb chicken breasts
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Instructions

  1. In large crockpot, combine all ingredients except cream cheese and sour cream. Cook on low heat for 6-8 hours. Half an hour before serving, remove chicken, shred it, and return to pot. Stir in sour cream and cream cheese.
  2. Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, tortilla strips and guacamole. Enjoy!

crazy stupid amazing delicious.

awesome for a crowd – put out dishes of tortilla strips, lime, avocado, sour cream, shredded cheddar, jalapenos, green onions, cilantro, etc. and let people go nuts customizing.

huge yield – 14 cups!

Could this be made without a crockpot? Perhaps in a dutch oven?

Reply

Aimee October 13, 2011 at 5:21 pm

This could absolutely be made on the stovetop. You could just add the sour cream and cream cheese after it’s been heated through, then allow those ingredients to heat as well. Enjoy!

This soup was great! Any idea on how many servings this makes? Trying to figure out the calorie content.

Reply

Aimee October 26, 2011 at 6:58 pm

@Anonymous- I am so glad you enjoyed the soup. As for servings, I honestly have no idea! I’m so sorry!

This sounds great but it’s only me and the hubby. Does it freeze well?

Reply

Aimee November 14, 2011 at 7:58 pm

Candace, freeze the soup before adding in the sour cream and cream cheese. Works perfect!

This also sounds yummy! I make chicken tortilla soup all the time and its ahmazing

Twingle Mommy January 21, 2012 at 2:29 am

I’m going to make this in the next week. If you’re going to freeze the leftovers, do you stir in the sour cream/cream cheese when you make it the first time and then freexe it? Or would you freeze it without sourcream/cream cheese and stir it in after you reheat it?

Yummy!! I can’t *wait* to try this soup!

Loved this soup. I left out one can of corn and added kidney, pinto, and black beans. Also, I mixed in a can of diced tomatoes with green chilis. I used only 1/4 tsp cumin. Turned out delish!

Ophelia December 29, 2013 at 8:16 pm

I just made this soup tonight and it was very good. We ate it with some Tostitos chips to add a bit of salty flavor to it.

So glad you enjoyed the recipe!! Happy New Year!

Amanda January 15, 2014 at 5:17 pm

I just made this today. I haven’t added the cream cheese or sour cream yet, and it is good without it. Can’t wait to try the finished product. I did have a couple modifications only because I didn’t have exactly what the recipe called for. I only had 1 can of mexicorn, so I used that and one can if regular corn. Also, instead if salsa I used 2 8oz cans of rotel. Lastly, I just used extra cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and crushed red pepper for the taco seasoning. (It’s basically the same thing). Still came out great.

I love to hear when people take one of my recipes and make it their own!! Glad you enjoyed the recipe :)

I’ve made this before, and it was delicious. This time around I forgot to grab tomato paste at the store and can’t leave until later today. Do you think it would be okay without it?
