Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

A hearty combination of beans, corn, tomatoes, and taco seasonings, slow cooked with shredded chicken. Top each bowl with Cheddar cheese, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips. Made mostly of canned ingredients, this tasty soup lets the slow cooker do the work so you don't have to!

I want to use chicken broth in place of beer (gluten) and because I hate cooked tomato chunks (it's a texture thing), homemade picante sauce for the diced tomatoes. Would you suggest using 20 oz. picante, like the tomatoes?

I make this a lot, I use broth or water or more tomato sauce for the beer, I have used salsa for the Rotel if I am out and I use the large jar.

I don't like that texture either. I normally use sauce or run my immersion blender through the tomatoes for anything like this. I haven't made this but I would agree with the4taals.

I make it often and use broth. I drink the beer. DW doesn't like tomato chunks either so in the food processor they go.

My son too does not like tomato chunks, so salsa or diced tomatoes get a hit with the immersion blender too!

Hey there lucy, long time no see. I sub chicken broth in many recipes like this that call for the beer. As far as salsa, that would work, maybe even better tasting. Lovin this soup weather we're having...but will gone soon, so enjoy the soup while you can.

OMG! I thought I was weird about tomatoes! Who knew so many others share my aversion? Good to know about the beer, too.

This is a personal recipe but sounds like something that you might like better. Everyone I make it for loves it.

I use broth all the time. (because of the gluten thing) As for the tomatoes I use a 14 oz of Hunts Chunky Sweet Onion, I run it through the food processor first, I hear ya about the texture thing! I also do not have to add onion this way.

http://allrecipes.com/personalrecipe/62506919/sbs-tortilla-soup/detail.aspx ....This is the most similar I have made and was really good, as are most of SB's recipes, so I wanted to share :) Her green hot sauce(salsa verde) is one of our favorites and I used it for the salsa in the chicken corn chili.

Thanks, Linda. They both look like winners. My biggest challenge is convincing DH that it's GOOD to eat Mexican food every day. After all, 112 million Mexicans can't ALL be wrong! LOL

This thread was posted yesterday about this same soup recipe . . . http://allrecipes.com/recipe-exchange/Recipe-Request.aspx?requestID=296675 . . . if you continue heading in the direction you’re going, you’ll remove most of the heat other than what there might be in whatever taco seasoning you decide to use. Definitely use the 20 oz. size of picante as there is not a lot of liquid in this soup.

Thanks, ConkyJoe. Rest assured, my picante is plenty hot, make it myself with lots of jalapenos. I'll be sticking to original recipe, only subbing broth and my picante. Can't imagine that will remove any of the heat.
