Crock Pot or Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken White Bean Soup

Once again, more of a method than a strict recipe. Comfort food with a little kick to it. I was going to make chile and this is what evolved - we liked it even better. And don't let the dried beans throw you - put them on the stove first, bring to a boil, let sit, and assemble the other ingredients while they stand. The pre-cooking and draining removes the volatile sugars that cause gas. You may also soak the beans overnight, drain the water then add the beans to the slow cooker.

ingredients

directions

  • Cover the beans with water, bring to a boil, cover, turn off the heat and let stand one hour.
  • Drain the beans and add to crock pot.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, add enough water to just cover everything. Cover the pot, turn to high and walk away.
  • Cook about 5 hours on high, or longer on low, depending on your beans and how firm you like them.
  • Cut the chicken into bite-sized chunks.
  • Serve topped with sour cream, grated cheese and/or chopped avocado.
  • Note: I also add 1-2 teaspoons of a seasoning I buy in the local Mexican market called "Sal/Chile/Limon" - you could just add lemon juice, salt and more chile powder, lemon pepper, if you like - it's not essential.
