If you love to tailgate, then you’ll love this recipe! This soup is the perfect way to serve up some spice without serving up the calories. Plus, the longer it simmers in your slow cooker, the more flavorful it will become, so it’ll taste just as good halfway through the game as it did before!

We want to make sure our recipes are juuust right before we share them with our readers, so we have reworked an older version of this recipe into a new and improved creation! This recipe is skinnier, tastier and better than ever thanks to a tiny bit of tweaking, and we know you’ll love it.

Recipe: Tortilla Chicken Soup

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low

Yield: 6 servings

Serving size: 1¾ cups and 2 tablespoons tortilla strips


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 (15-ounce) can reduced-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag frozen corn kernels
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2 (10-ounce) cans Ro*Tel® mild diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chilies
  • 1 (1-ounce) packet less-sodium taco seasoning

  1. Place the chicken in a slow cooker. Add the onion, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, green chilies, taco seasoning, and chicken broth, and stir to combine. Cover and cook on high heat for 4 hours or on low heat for 8 hours.
