I found this hearty recipe online several years ago and often make it instead of chili. Made mostly of canned ingredients, this soup lets the slow cooker do the work for you so you can go about your hectic schedule. This recipe is very adaptable to your personal taste. To add more kick simply omit the one can of diced tomatoes and add a second can of diced tomatoes with green chilies.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the onion, chili beans, black beans, tomato sauce, chicken broth, and both cans of diced tomatoes in a slow cooker. Add taco seasoning and stir to blend ingredients.
  2. Lay chicken breasts on top of the mixture, pressing down slightly just until covered by the other ingredients.
  3. Set slow cooker on low heat setting, cover and cook for 7-8 hours.
  4. Carefully remove chicken breasts from the soup and allow to cool long enough to be handled. Dice the chickn into bite size pieces and return to slow cooker. Stir soup to blend in the chicken.
  5. Serve topped with shredded cheese or sour cream.

My guest absolutely loved this soup. I didn't have 7-8 hours to cook it, so I grilled and diced chicken before adding. Allowed it to cook for 4 hours and it was incredible! Can't wait to serve this one again.

Very easy and tasty! Slightly spicey. Enjoyed it very much. Have made it twice now and will make again. Great for a rainy day :) Thanks

Really delicious! We had a great taco soup at a Mexican restuarant and wanted to try it at home. This was terrific! A little spicy for my kids - next time I'll use half a can of tomatoes with chiles and half a can of regular diced tomatoes. Served with crumbled tortilla chips on top. Everyone had seconds!
