Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Soup


 




Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Soup






This Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Soup is simple and delicious! We love how healthy chicken soups allow us to enjoy a variety of nutritious foods while tasting decadent and rich.

Ingredients

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 4 cups grated cooked chicken (about 3 chicken breasts)
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of instant rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup salsa in pieces
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon of seasoned salt
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 can (11 ounces) whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained (I used Green Giant Mexicorn)

Instructions

In a large saucepan, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent - about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for about 1 minute - being careful not to burn it. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add the chicken, black beans, corn, salsa, rice, seasoned salt and cumin. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until the rice is tender. Happy Cooking Time.
