Printer-friendly version


1 lb. chicken breasts

1 medium onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 (15 0z.) can beef broth

1 cup water

1 can (15 oz.) corn, undrained

1 can (15 oz.) diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained

1 (11 oz.) can enchilada sauce

1 packet taco seasoning

½ tsp. chili powder

salt & pepper, to taste

shredded cheese, for topping

crunchy tortilla strips, for topping



Place chicken breasts in the bottom of your crock pot. Season with a bit of salt & pepper.  

Add in diced onions and minced garlic.


Then pour in beef stock, corn, diced tomatoes and enchilada sauce.  
Sprinkle with taco seasoning and chili powder. Then give it all a good stir.


Put the lid on and cook on low for about 8-10 hours.


About 10-15 minutes before serving, take the chicken breasts out and shred them using two forks.  The chicken will shred very easily.


Then put shredded chicken back in pot. Stir again.  Let cook for additional 15 minutes.


Then serve and top with shredded cheese and crispy tortilla strips.


Cook’s Notes: Feel free to add any beans you like in here.  Black beans go well with this soup. Also, some folks like to top this with diced avocado as well as fresh cilantro.
