Chicken 'n Black Bean soup

THE BOOOOOOOMB! I love this recipe. Jonathan and I want Linkmore even after we are stuffed. If this kinda flavor is up your alley, make it soon! I had dinner ready at 8:27am... that is some sort of personal record for me.

So exercise trust and just do it.

Kickin' Chicken and Black Bean Soup
(found it @ Spark Recipes)
1 16oz jar of salsa verde
1 can diced tomato
1 can corn
2 cans of black beans
5 frozen chicken breasts
1 tsp cumin
1 3oz pkg of cream cheese (trust me people..)

Basically, dump all the green salsa and canned goods (juices included) into the crock pot with the frozen chicken breasts and cook on low for 6 or 8 or 10 hours.. depending on how old or "slow" your cooker really is. See, mine is not so slow... so I have to do more like 6 hours. Anyway, once the time is up... turn the crock pot to the "warm" setting and add the cream cheese, stir every so often until its all melted and combined. Usually while I am letting the cream cheese melt I take out the chicken and dice it up. Takes like, 5 minutes!

Oh my goodness. It is yummy. Davin scarfs it down. Like, he doesn't even breathe. His little nose even runs a little bit because it has a little kick to it. You can eat it plain or with some cheese on top.. my fav is shredded colby jack, but that's just me.

Some friends had us over a while ago and she made a version of chicken and black bean soup and served those "hint of lime" tortilla chips. Umm?? Hello??? YUM!!

Enjoy. It is so super easy and it makes a lot!


  1. Sounds delicious! I will be making this soup soon. Thanks for sharing the recipe! How many servings for this recipe?

  2. :) Yeah, I am making to for tonight since Glenn and Hannah will be here. Yummy. It makes a whole crock pot full. Jonathan and I ate it for dinner, then I had it for lunch, he had it for lunch and Davin had it probably 4 or 5 times. So... I would say 6 serves. Maybe more. I guess I will have a better estimate after tonight when dinner is over and I can see how much is left over :)

  3. the recipe on Spark Recipes says it serves 10! whoa!
