Number of Servings: 8


    * 1/2 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 1/2 c chicken broth
    * 1 (15 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, chicken broth, 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.

    To reduce sodium use Target"s Archer Farms brand, agreat taco seasoning mix that is significantly lower in sodium than the major brands. - 6/24/11

    It looks great except for the high sodium. I will substitute chili powder, cumin and coriander for the taco seasoning to cut down on the sodium. - 9/13/10

    This was great. My family loved it and my son suggested that we make a double batch, drain it and use as burrito filling. We'll try that idea too! Great and easy find. - 2/4/10

  • Excellent! My boyfriend loved it and it was great on a cold night. Instead of taco seasoning I used chili powder and cumin. I also added bell peppers,mushrooms and celery. - 1/8/15

  • This is great. I added Taco sauce & Frank's Red Hot since we did not have the taco seasoning. Definitely 5+ stars - 1/18/14

  • Was very good, very filling, but did find it a little bland. I will be adding some sort of extra spice next time, maybe chopped jalepenos for some kick. Did not put tortillas on this time, will definitely do it next time for some crunch. - 1/14/14

  • So good! I didn't make this in the slow cooker. I sautéed the onion in a bit of garlic infused olive oil, then browned the chicken for about 1-2 min each side. I also added an xtra 2 cups of water, used the small can of rotel and added a cup of garbanzo (mashed) beans with the corn at the end. YUM! - 1/1/14

  • This recipe is absolutely fabolous! Before throwing it in the slow cooker, I sauted the onion in olive oil until clear and added diced red bell pepper. This recipe is a keeper! - 2/23/13

  • I love the idea - but the sodium is way too high for my heart. I am going to use it but take the time to soak the beans and not used processed beans. 1,385 is so high - wow... - 11/26/12

  • Can anyone comment on how spicy this is. We like things on the milder side. I have never cooked with chili beans or tomatoes with green chilis so I have no idea if these 2 ingredients will make it spicy? - 2/19/12
