Slow Cooker Chicken Fiesta Soup

October 1, 2020

Today is the first day of October - which means that it is officially soup season! My favorite! I love any kind of soup that I can just mix up in a slow cooker and let it cook all day! It makes dinner a breeze!

Today I am making Chicken Fiesta Soup in my slow cooker. I call it that because of its chicken taco flavor and it makes enough to feed a party! This recipe makes 4 quarts and it is the perfect, easy meal to feed a crowd. Just put it on your kitchen island with all of your favorite taco toppings next to it. I love to top this soup with cheese, crushed tortilla chips, jalapeños, avocado, sour cream and green onions. Everyone always loves this soup. It is so easy, inexpensive and incredibly healthy too!

Don't you just love slow cooker meals this time of the year?! Have a fiesta tonight!
