  1. Place the onion, garlic, chili beans, black beans, corn, chopped carrot, 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. Remove chicken breasts from the soup, and allow to cool long enough to be handled. Shred the chicken, and then stir the shredded chicken back into the soup, and continue cooking for 2 hours. Serve topped with shredded cheese, a dollop of light sour cream, chopped cilantro and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.


It was a hit. The whole family loved this soup!! Very quick and easy to make. I substituted the beer with chicken broth as was suggested. I also replaced the tomato sauce with Organic Roast...

This was great! I love all the veggies! i substitued chicken broth for the beer. next time I think I will use a little more taco seasoning.

The recipe does not say how much garlic to use.

This was really good. A nice change to our usual dinners.

My family loved this recipe. It was very "hot", so next time I will cut back on the spices. Overall, excellent dish!

Family loved the nice to put together in the morning and have ready when everyone is home. Easy!
