Crockpot Chicken Taco Soup (w/ vegetarian option)

 This is one of those recipes that will be requested by your family over and over again.

Crockpot Chicken Taco Soup


Many of my readers have requested more crockpot recipes. What can I say… I aim to please.

 

The idea behind the crockpot is to set it and forget it. I wanted the prep to be simple for this one… that is what crockpots are for, to make life EASY!

 

This hardy soup is just that. Chop an onion, open cans and dump in! I LOVE how easy this was to make. It would be a smart idea to keep the canned ingredients on hand, a couple frozen chicken breast in the freezer, and whip out this recipe when you can’t figure out what to make :)

 

Here are a few notes. To make this VEGETARIAN, just leave out the chicken and add a couple more cans of beans. I think dark kidney beans would be great or even chickpeas. BOOM, vegetarian!

 

If you are worried about the beer, please don’t be. There was no beer taste in the final product. If it’s really an issue, just substitute with chicken or veggie broth, or even water.

This soup would be awesome to make for a Super Bowl party. Just keep in in the crock on warm, serve in coffee mugs or small bowls… PERFECT!

  7. Before I even saw this post, I made a VERY similar version that is passed around in our family.. hope it’s okay for me to post as an alternative! Delicious for sure! I was just shocked to see this variation featured on your website just after I made my today! :)
    For ours, the recipe actually calls for ground beef, but since we don’t eat beef, we use ground chicken instead. You cook the 1 lb ground chicken (or beef if you’re into that sort of thing) with an onion and a clove or two of garlic if you want. Once it is all cooked, throw in the crock pot with 12oz bottle of beer (and I say NO subbing allowed on this ingredient.. it really does make the dish and you can’t taste the beer itself at all), 1 1/2 cups water, 2 cans of corn undrained, 1 can pinto beans (rinse/drain), 1 can black beans (rinse/drain), 2 cans of tomatoes with green chilies (we just use mild Rotel tomatoes and chilies and it is perfect on the spice), 1 packet of taco seasoning, and 1 packet of ranch dressing mix. Cover and cook on low until you are ready to eat. Sometimes mine only cooks for 3-4 hours.. other times, I throw it in early and it goes for 7-8. Since the meat is precooked, you could probably just leave it in long enough for the flavors to all come together. We serve ours with shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream and some crushed tortilla chips! Fabulous!

    • Sounds delish Sarah! I like the idea of the ranch dressing mix :) YUM! I put the substitution in, because I know a couple people who do not drink any sort of alcohol, but I agree, there is NO beer taste at all. Thanks for sharing!

  8. What size can of diced tomatoes do you use? My husband and I are looking forward to trying this. We’ve already enjoyed your lasagna soup!

    Thanks in advance!

    • Awesome Barb! I am so glad you liked the Lasagna Soup :) You want you use 2 standard 14.5 oz cans, or 1 jumbo 28oz can. I’ll make sure to go back and specify that in the recipe. Hope you love it! XO

  9. Do you have nutritional information for this? My husband is on Weight Watchers and I need to figure out points. Thank you.

  10. Hi,can’t wait to try your Taco soup! It looks so good;)) thank you for sharing!
