Crock Pot Chicken Taco Soup is the perfect way to warm up on a cold day. This hearty soup is full of chicken, beans and corn. I love the corn in this soup because it gives it a little bit of a crunch. The seasonings make this soup so tasty. This soup is similar to my Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup, but works great for those who don’t have an Instant Pot.
I love cooking in my slow cooker because it is so easy and makes my whole house smell amazing! Cooking chicken in a crock pot is great because the chicken stays moist and gets very tender. The chicken in this crock pot recipe just falls apart when it is done. Scroll down for tips and to print the recipe.

- You can add an additional chicken breast (or 2) to make this soup more like a stew. It tastes just as good but it makes more.
- You can substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth, and it tastes just as good. Vegetable broth is full of flavor! I like to use Imagine Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth. Find it at a store near you.
