Chicken Taco Soup

Nothing to show you ... yet. Today was chores (and baking yummy, scrumptious cinnamon buns!!) & yesterday was T-Ball and baseball so no stamping time. HOWEVER, I'll be stampin' tonight! :) It was a full day and I must tell ya, I LOOOOOOVE my crock pot. NO, not your TYPICAL crock pot menu. For me, when I first thought crock pot -- images of mushy, overcooked food entered my mind -- blek! Naw, naw, naw.... not I. If I have to I'll cook the veggies at the last moment and throw 'em in. Not the point here, really. A sweet friend of mine has this AMAZING recipe that I threw in my crockpot this morning and the kids and I gobbled it up tonight. SO... for that day when you spend all day playing and you don't want to "cook"... pull out your crock pot and give this one a try -- Y-U-M-M-Y!!
Here's what you need:
2-3 chicken breasts, chopped up
1 can cream of chicken (I used mushroom) soup
3 cups of Chicken Broth
1 can of corn (I used a couple of corn on the cob leftovers ;-) )
1 Can of chili style tomatoes (run it through the blender & your kids will have NO IDEA!!!) LOL.
1/2 - 1 package of taco seasoning mix (we opted for 1/2... hubby would go for the whole thing!)
1 can of Black Beans
I throw it all in the crock pot (expect the cooked chicken). Put it on low for about 5 hours, then put the chicken in & cook for another 2. The house will smell amazing!! Dish it out and add a nice dollop of sour cream, some shredded cheddar cheese and some original flavor corn chips.
ENJOY!!! Let me know if you try it --
