It's a simple meal that's perfect any time!  | Tried and TastyI love me a good crock pot meal. I prefer to throw it together in the morning before work so that it’s ready when I get home rather than before bed and have it cook through the night. I have a sensitive sniffer and the smell of yummy crock pot meals cooking through the night is too hard! Makes me want to get up in the middle of the night and eat :) Anyway, this is a great simple meal that is perfect anytime!

Crock Pot Mexican Chicken Soup is a great meal for any time.  Finish it off with all of your favorite toppings!



  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 c chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 15 oz cans Great Northern White Beans, drained and rinsed


  1. Scatter the onion and garlic about the base of your slow cooker. Arrange the chicken breasts evenly over the top.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the chicken broth, cumin, oregano, smoked paprika, chili powder, and salt. Pour over the chicken. Cook on low for about 6 hours. Remove the lid and shred the chicken using two forks and pulling against the grain of the meat. Stir in beans.
  3. Add more broth or a little water if you think that the soup is too thick for your liking, and then return the lid to cover. Continue cooking for an additional 30 minutes to allow the beans to warm.
  4. Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, fresh cilantro, and an additional dusting of smoked paprika.
