Usually I'm not too much a fan of canned goods, but I used what I had and I was in a rush. The end result was delicious, very flavorful, and surprisingly not hot (spicy, spicy hot). Okay so here's the very simple recipe in case you want to try it out:
Slow Cooker Southwestern Soup
In the slow cooker add: 1 chopped onion, a can of corn, a can of black beans, a can of chili beans, a can of tomato sauce made for chili recipes, 2 small cans of diced green chiles, four chicken thighs seasoned with a little salt, black pepper, and cumin. Top with fresh cilantro leaves. Cover and cook on the low setting for 7 hours. Shred the chicken, stir and serve!
I served this soup with a dollop of sour cream, some fresh cilantro leaves, and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese. I also had some Tostito scoops. Ummm, good!
* I'm actually afraid to leave my Crock Pot cooking while I'm not at home, so I prefer to cook things during the night. In the morning, it's much easier to crawl out of bed when I smell those yummy dishes!
