(Cooking) Salsa Chicken and Black Bean Soup


I discovered this recipe on the Crockpot 365 blog and it has become one of our cold weather favorites! It is packed with flavor and the avocado slices add a cool and creamy (and healthy!) touch. This is a recipe your whole family will love.

Salsa Chicken and Black Bean Soup

soup1 lb chicken tenderloins

2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed

4 c chicken broth

1 c sliced mushrooms

1 c frozen corn

1 jar (16oz) prepared salsa

1 ½ t cumin

½ c sour cream

shredded cheddar cheese, avocado slices, cilantro (opt)

1. Drain and rinse beans. Add to the a 4qt or larger crockpot. Put in the chicken and add the broth and salsa. Add corn, mushrooms, and cumin. Stir, but don’t disturb the beans – let them stay at the bottom of the pot, closest to the heating element.

2. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.

3. (Opt) To thicken the broth, use an immersible blender to blend some of the beans and chicken. Or scoop out 2 cups of the soup and blend in a traditional blender. Add blended soup back into the crockpot.

4. Stir in the sour cream before serving and garnish with shredded cheese and avocado slices.
