Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1lb FROZEN Chicken Breast
    1 Can Bush's Great Northern Beans (undrained)
    1 Can Black Beans (undrained)
    1 Can Dark Red Kidney Beans (Partially Drained)
    1 Can Green Giant White Corn (undrained)
    1 Packet Taco Seasoning
    1 Packet Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix. (powder)
    1 Can Diced Tomatoes w/ Green Chiles (undrained)
    + Dash of Cumin.

    ONE SERVING = ONE (8OZ)CUP

    Can be topped with shredded cheese and sour cream - NOT included in nutrition information.

Directions

All ingredients in crock pot 1 hour on high 6 on low!

Do not defrost chicken, put it in first, on the bottom of the pot closest to the heating mechanism.

Do not drain any of the cans except the kidney beans and even then only drain off what sits on the top of the can, leave 3/4ths of undrained.

This is a thick hearty soup with a great flavor.
Can be substitued with a pound of frozen ground beef but that adds more calories and more fat than necessary.

Cook for 1 hour on high, 6 on low.

Once it's done cooking you will be able to use a fork and shred up the chicken while still in the pot!

Enjoy!

    very tasty but high in sodium, I used fresh beans and soaked them overnight the night before instead of canned beans....if you get rid of the canned beans the sodium per serving is under 200mg instead of over 800mg! - 12/30/09

    Great tasting soup! My husband has already asked me to make it again. I drained and rinsed all the beans and corn, then added 3 cups fat free low sodium chicken broth and let cook all day. Soup was nice and thick. Added a tablespoon of light sour cream to top off each bowl-delicious! - 1/26/09

    Super Yum, Super Easy! Rinsed all canned ingredients, did not use taco seasoning or ranch, but added canned salsa ranchero. Seasoned with Cumin, oregano, chili powder, red pepper flakes, cayenne, and garlic powder. Used boneless/skinless thighs because I had them on hand. In the rotation, thanks! - 3/24/10

    This recipe involves no prep which is perfect for me, a busy college student! I put all the ingredients in the slow cooker before class, and when I get home I'm greeted by the amazing smell of this soup! Not only does it smell great, it tastes incredible! It's easy to make and tastes great! Try it! - 1/21/09

    One of our favorites! Definitely rinse the beans and you can forgo the ranch dressing mix. Add extra water, garlic, and an extra can of tomatoes with jalepeno or a can of spicy v-8 if you appreciate a kick. Ground turkey breast works great too! - 8/30/10
