Recipe: Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

I found this recipe on Pinterest and loosely based my soup around it.

Photobucket
Ingredients: 
1 lbs. chicken boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained (I used 2 cans black beans)
1 can corn
1 onion, chopped
2 cans low-sodium chicken broth
1-2 cups of water
1 Tbsp garlic powder*
1 Tbsp chile powder*
1 Tbsp ground cumin*
1 Tbsp dried cilantro*

Toppings: 
tortilla chips
sour cream
shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
Avocado
*Instead of these spices, you could include a packet of Taco seasoning if you prefer.* I used a little of all! ;)

Put chopped onion, cans of beans, corn, chicken broth, water, and spices in CrockPot and stir to mix. Put chicken breasts on top of mixture and make sure they're at least partly submerged in liquid. Cook on high 6-7 hours or low 8-9 hours. Before serving remove the chicken breasts from soup and shred, if needed, (sometimes they'll just fall apart on their own, but sometimes they need some help). Return chicken to CrockPot, stir to combine.

To serve put a few tortilla chips in the bottom of a bowl, ladle soup over tortilla chips, top with shredded cheddar cheese, and a dollop of sour cream, serve with more chips if you like. Enjoy!

Looks delish! I might have to whip that up one day this week. During April, rainy season, nothing's better than a big bowl of soup.
