Want a healthy soup that is low carb and high in protein? This slow cooker chicken taco soup is full to the brim with vegetables and legumes. It’s fast to make – so perfect for busy weekdays – and very filling.
Everybody needs a chicken taco soup recipe in their lives – and in my opinion, this one is it. The whole recipe is made in two easy steps – first, you’ll add all ingredients to your slow cooker (I have this one) for 4-6 hours, then remove the chicken, shred it with a fork and add it back to the soup. That’s it!
I love to add fresh toppings like avocado, plain greek yogurt, grated cheese, crushed tortilla chips, and green onions. It’s sooo yummy and the perfect meal for you and your family to enjoy as you go on your health journey.
