Putting them in the Pot

All Mixed Up

Already ready already!

Easy Taco Soup

1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, ground *
1 whole onion, chopped
1 16 ounce can chili beans in zesty sauce, with liquid
1 15 ounce can kidney beans, with liquid
1 15 ounce can corn, with liquid
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
2 cups water
1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 4 ounce can diced green chiles
1 1.25 ounce packet taco seasoning mix

In a medium skillet, cook the ground chicken until browned over medium heat. Drain, and set aside.

Place the ground chicken, onion, chili beans, kidney beans, corn, tomato sauce, water, diced tomatoes, green chile peppers and taco seasoning mix in a slow cooker. Mix to blend, and cook on Low setting for 8 hours.

* I just use left over taco meat. I always make too much so I save it for this and Taco Chicken Pizza.

You can also use ground turkey or ground beef. It just depends on what you like.
