Chef's Notes

Instead of using store-bought taco seasoning mix, try using Healthier Taco Seasoning I; This recipe is a healthier version of Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup.


  1. pretty good
  2. Yummy! I doubled the recipe, used low sodium everything, subbed veggie broth for beer, added sliced black olives, and 3 T minced garlic. Omitted carrots. Also for chicken, I shredded the white meat of 2 ready-made rotisserie chicken. Could easily go vegan w no chicken.
  3. I was very obedient; I followed the directions, and it was awesome! It's a keeper. THANKS.
  4. Wow I wasn't sure about this but it turned out delicious! Made just a couple changes - I hadn't planned on making it this evening so I cooked it on the stovetop. I added 1 tbps of minced garlic with the onion and left out the carrot. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Will definitely be - Read more ...
  5. Really good. I made into more of a stew. I just used a large can of rinsed black beans for the beans. For the sauce I used jar of Newmans own marinara sauce and can of chicken stock (No beer or diced tomatoes). I skipped the canned chillis. Used four chicken breasts. When I took - Read more ...
  6. I make this all the time and it always turns out well. You can also make a few additions to kick up a notch: I sometimes add 2-3 zucchini and a green pepper for extra vegetables and I sometimes kick it up a notch with some extra cayenne.
  7. I did not have Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilies), what I did was use one can petite diced tomatoes and one 4 ounce can diced mild green chilies. I also used my own homemade taco seasoning and I threw in a couple cloves of fresh minced garlic. Very good.
  8. I've had this before. Made it several times and always love it just the same. Question, though. I'm keeping track of the calories I take in. What, technically, is considered a serving? A cup? I also nix the beer for low-sodium chicken broth and find that it tastes amazing!
  9. Made this according to directions. Added avocado as a treat. Excellent dish slow cooked to perfection.
