"My old roommate, who was Latino, gave me this recipe about 8 years ago. Recently I was cleaning out a cookbook and found the recipe tucked away. This is extremely delicious. I don't know what it was called, she just said it was something her mom used to make when she was younger. Depending on how spicy you like it, you omit or ramp up any variety of hot spices you like. This is great served over rice with shredded cheese and sour cream -- or even with corn bread. It is really versatile."

  1. Place the chicken breasts into the bottom of a slow cooker, and pour tomatoes, green salsa, black beans, pinto beans, and corn over the chicken. Sprinkle taco seasoning, cilantro, ground red chile, and cumin over the mixture, and stir to combine. Cover the cooker, set on Low, and cook until chicken is very tender and the mixture has thickened, 8 to 10 hours.
  2. For soup, leave all liquid in the cooker; for a thicker stew, remove some liquid if desired. Mix 1 or 2 tablespoons of liquid with cream cheese in a bowl, stir until smooth, and mix the cream cheese into the cooker to make a creamy sauce. Continue to cook for 15 minutes, then serve.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • You can certainly use this recipe as a base for incredible creamy tortilla soup too. Using one of those pre-roasted chickens or turkeys from your local grocery, shred and place in the bottom of the cooker instead of chicken breasts.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

This sounds like it would be really good if you are pressed for time. I think frozen corn and using uncooked beans would be so much healthier. I haven't made this yet and when I do, I will come...

Hubby really enjoyed this. I used an 8 oz. block of cream cheese and substituted boneless thighs for the breasts and frozen (thawed) corn instead of canned. Next time I will add even more cila...

husband said "if it's easy, it's a keeper". It was! This coming from a guy who's not a fan of Hispanic dishes! Yum! Thanks! We did take out some of the liquid and served over rice.

Excellent stew; could also be called a chili. The only change I felt compelled to make was to add about a 1/2 cup onion; otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. While putting it together, I fe...

Very good! Took to a potluck and EVERYONE loved it. I de-boned a cooked rotisserie chicken and added it to all the other ingredients except the cream cheese. I added 2 cups of chicken broth sinc...

Fantastic!! Elected to use 3-3/4 lbs. of skinless, boneless chicken thighs rather than chicken breasts. For the diced tomatoes, used 4, 10 oz. cans of Rotel Hot Diced Tomatoes w/ Habaneros. For ...

Very good recipe! Followed the recipe, except for not reading that the beans needed to be drained. Made for a good soup. We added rice to the soup and topped with crushed Fritos. Next time, ...

Fantastic! I made this recipe just as specified except I used the tomatoes with green chiles instead of just diced tomatoes and I added half of a yellow onion, diced. For some reason, I just h...
