Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Soup

This flavour-packed Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Soup is the ultimate comfort food… a tomato, bean, corn and chicken soup served with sour cream, avocado and corn chips!

I’ve called it a soup, but it’s really much more like an entire main meal. There’s so much delicious chicken, beans, corn and tomatoes going on in there, that you don’t feel like you’re eating a soup at all. Yep, this is one hearty flavoursome meal. And it’s definitely a winner on a cold winters night.

For me, Mexican food just isn’t the same without a big dollop of sour cream and chunky avocado on top. It really takes this slow cooker Mexican chicken soup to a whole new level of yumminess. Oh and you know what’s even better…. a whole heap of corn chips on the side too. And if you like a bit of heat, add some chilli powder to the soup while it’s cooking.

Easy weeknight dinner

The best thing about this soup is that you just pop everything into the crockpot and then leave it to do it’s thing for a few hours. Just before serving, take the chicken out and shred it into pieces, pop it back in, give it all a stir and then serve it up. This is one of our favourite midweek dinners… especially on busy nights!

Flavour packed Mexican soup

Forget about full and boring soups, this Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken Soup packs a massive flavour punch thanks to the enchilada sauce (or salsa) and the taco seasoning. YUM!
