You can call this soup or chili, but either way it is wonderful! This recipe is also very adaptable to your personal taste. I recommend using Bill Echols’ Taco Seasoning from this website. Serve topped with shredded Cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips, if you like. I hope you enjoy!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (16 ounce) can chili beans
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans
  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
  • 2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning
  • 3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place the onion, chili beans, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, beer, and diced tomatoes in a slow cooker. Add taco seasoning, and stir to blend. Lay chicken breasts on top of the mixture, pressing down slightly until just covered by the other ingredients. Set slow cooker for low heat, cover, and cook for 5 hours.
  2. 2 Remove chicken breasts from the soup, and allow to cool long enough to be handled. Stir the shredded chicken back into the soup, and continue cooking for 2 hours. Serve topped with shredded Cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.

  1. Yet another highly rated recipe that was just so so for me. I can't quite put my finger on it but there was something off a little. I would have guessed the beer as the culprit but no one, not even the beer-haters claimed to taste the beer at all. With that said, the suggested - Read more ...
  2. People are really getting on my nerves saying "Leave out the beer!" No, do not leave out the beer. USE THE CORRECT KIND OF BEER!!! You need to use a DARK, MEXICAN BEER, not your husband's Natty Light, Miller Lite, Colt45 or whatever it is people have been using. This is an excellent recipe, I - Read more ...
  3. I wasn't sure about making this as I hate beer and no one in my house drinks it. I also don't like very spicy foods.

  6. This soup is not bad. It needs more seasoning. I added some chili powder, cumin, flaked red pepper, salt, and garlic powder.
  7. I brought this to my Texas Holdem Poker nite. Everyone liked it. Im on a budget of 20 dollars. So I only used 4 chicken breast, doubled the recipe, added water no beer or chicken broth ( the chicken makes its own in the water) doubled everything else. You need large crockpot. Just threw everything - Read more ...
  8. This is a great recipe, low in fat and full of fiber. Yummy!!! It made alot and would be great when you have guests over for dinner. I did make a couple of changes based on previous reviews. I left out the onion because my family doesn't like it. I left out the beer and - Read more ...
  9. Five stars for quick, easy, and tasty. Plus, I already had everything in the house. I left out the beer and used one cup homemade chicken broth instead. I used two chicken breasts and that seemed like a good amount. I also used fire-roasted frozen corn from Trader Joe's (instead of canned). Garnished with light - Read more ...
  10. This is an easy, GREAT recipe ... especially if you use about 1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders in place of the boneless breasts BUT ... FORGET THE BEER! Next time I'll use a can of chicken broth. Beer gives an unusual flavor that we did NOT care for.
