What's cooking, good looking?


Do you smell that? Ooooh, that's too bad because my house smells DELICIOUS! What is it? Well, that's what I am about to share with you.

This is Taco Soup.

This recipe was given to me years ago by my friend, Karen and this recipe has been shared numerous times by numerous people because it's so yummy and now it's my turn to share it on my blog, on social media, wherever!  So, sit back and enjoy!

This crock pot is full of so much goodness and it's a meal that my family and I love (yes, my entire family loves this)

Ingredients... let's get right to it, shall we? (this is modified from the original recipe)

Ingredients... well, most of them.

  • 1 16oz can of chili beans
  • 1 15oz can of black beans
  • 1 15oz can of corn (drained)
  • 1 8oz can of tomato sauce
  • 2 10oz cans of Rotel
  • 1 package of taco seasoning
  • 3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts (we used 2)
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Tostitos Scoops (The kids LOVE these!)

Now onto the preparation! 

Get your crock pot ready and pour in the chili beans, black beans, corn (don't forget to drain the corn only), tomato sauce and rotel.

Add in the taco seasoning and stir to blend.

After you blended it all together, you'll want to take your chicken breasts and lay them on top of the mixture, pressing down slightly until it is just covered by the ingredients. 


Now, set the crock pot on low heat, cover and cook for 5 hours. Be prepared for your house to smell AMAZING!! (Ours always does!)

After 5 hours of cooking, you'll want to remove the chicken from the soup (allow it to cool long enough to be handled) and shred the chicken (with a fork or two), then add it back into the soup and continue to cook for an additional 2 hours.

Serve topped with cheddar cheese and use the scoops to dive in! The meal will be hot, just so you know! You can also add sour cream, if you like. We don't, but if you like it... use it!

If you have leftovers they are fantastic the next day -- and this is coming from someone who doesn't like leftovers.

Happy Crock Potting!
