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


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.

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.

Hi, I just made the Chicken Taco Soup recipe, and it was yummy even my 2yr old eat it and he's very picky about food. I did how ever tweek it a bit. I add chicken broth insted of beer...and didn't have a can of tamatos with chiles so I just added a can of diced tamatos and cut up 1 jalapeno (de seeded) and add that instead...I also was short hand on taco spice so I added a pork rub I make myself with the same stuff that in the taco spice, so I did that...and added a about 12oz more water because I put more chicken in...but it was yummy and I have my kids asking to mak it again...:) thank you for this recipe you guys have saved dinner for me yet again...:)

LUV IT, LUV IT- So easy and kids and adults both like it. My husband is asking for it every couple of weeks- It has become a regular favorite in my househould. It's great b/c I can throw all the stuff in and do other things. It tastes so good. Dinner is done w/ tasty leftovers. It freezes well also. One change I made was to use fiesta corn. Try it and you'll be hooked.

This recipe is wonderful! It was so easy to make and everyone loved it. Next time I may add more beans. However, it's great the original way too! I will definitely make this over and over!
