New find for Slow Cooker Sunday

One of my favorite websites for recipes hunting is  I have made so many recipes from this site over the years I have lost count.  The thing I like about it is that people leave reviews and comment on what they liked about the recipes and give ideas on how to make it better or make it a little different.  So not only do you get the original recipe, you get many varieties of the same dish!

When I am looking for something new and different to make, I enter the type of food I want (chicken, beef, slow get the point) and sort it by rating.  This will give you the top rated recipes first. 

I just found this recipe and it is a front runner for this Sunday's slow cookin'! It looks so YUMMY!!

Chicken Taco Soup

1 onion, chopped
1 (16 ounce) can chili beans
1 (15 ounce) can black beans
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning
3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts
shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
sour cream (optional)
crushed tortilla chips (optional)

1.Place the onion, chili beans, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, beer, and diced tomatoes in a slow cooker. Add taco seasoning, and stir to blend. Lay chicken breasts on top of the mixture, pressing down slightly until just covered by the other ingredients. Set slow cooker for low heat, cover, and cook for 5 hours.
2.Remove chicken breasts from the soup, and allow to cool long enough to be handled. Stir the shredded chicken back into the soup, and continue cooking for 2 hours. Serve topped with shredded Cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.

  5. I'm following you back. Thank you so much for stopping by and that you for the compliments. This soup sounds yummy, I will be tryint his soon sounds like I start it with my easy soup stock called V8. My hubby makes fun of me because all fall and winter I would pour V8 frozen vegetables into a pot and cook them for a good 30 mins and call it a meal. Of course I add different seasonings but, what can I say I love spinach and sometimes make it with frozen meatballs in it. If you ever need anything real fast I suggest it, it's so easy.
