You’ll need minimal ingredients for this easy slow cooker chicken taco soup and the best part is you probably already have a lot of the ingredients on hand.

The complete recipe is at the bottom of this post, but here are a few details about this slow-cooker soup.

Although this easy chicken taco soup recipe uses a lot of ingredients similar to a chili, this truly is a more liquid-style soup with a flavorful broth.  It’s seasoned with taco flavors from taco seasoning, fire-roasted tomatoes and green chilies from jarred salsa, the chili seasoning from the pinto beans and any of your favorite toppings to finish off your bowl before serving — think fresh cilantro, a jalapeno pepper, tortilla chips, shredded cheddar cheese and/or a dollop of sour cream! 

The other ingredient that adds to this delicious soup is the undrained sweet corn. Combined with vegetable broth or a low-sodium chicken broth, you have the perfect pairing of liquids to flavor this creamy chicken taco soup.

I’ve always made this with boneless skinless chicken breasts, but boneless skinless chicken thighs would certainly work too. And if you have cooked chicken or a rotisserie chicken, this recipe is a great way to use those leftovers too. 

This easy recipe takes very little time from a prep standpoint and then your slow-cooker cooking time is about 6-7 hours on low.

If you’re a fan of hearty soups, the chicken, beans and corn make this filling and perfect for a cold night.
