It took me a few tries to get this slow cooker chicken taco soup recipe juuust right. The first version was good, but took more effort than I wanted. That recipe took some chopping, and I want to give you a dump-and-go taco soup recipe that you can prep in just minutes.
For the second version, I tried making this soup creamy. We liked that one okay, but I decided that it didn’t really need the cream that I added to it. We much prefer this simpler version, with a dollop of Greek yogurt on top if we’re craving a little creaminess.
Finally, I decided to forgo all chopping and pour in some salsa. The salsa adds more flavor (and some extra spice!) to this soup, without extra effort. The one that I used already has onion and jalapeno in it, which saves us prep time and ingredients.
8 ready-to-go ingredients. Less than 10 minutes prep. Dump it into your crock pot, set it and forget it! That’s how easy this flavor-packed Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup is!
We like to serve this soup with tortilla chips for crumbling on top or scooping. My sweet honey cornbread recipe is also delicious with this taco soup.

- Optional toppings: cilantro, plain Greek yogurt or sour cream, grated cheese, avocado, green onion, tortilla chips
- Place salsa, black beans, pinto beans, corn, diced tomatoes, taco seasoning, and chicken broth in slow cooker. Stir to combine. Nestle chicken into the slow cooker so that it’s completely covered by the liquid and other ingredients.
- Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Remove chicken and shred or cut into bite-size pieces. Stir chicken back into the soup.

The taco soup can cook for longer than 6 hours if needed. I wouldn't recommend cooking it more than 8 hours (on low).
