Chicken Fiesta Soup

After taking a few week hiatus for the holidays I am back! Here’s a yummy soup recipe that has just enough spice to take the chill out of a cold winter night.Chicken Fiesta Soup

2 Chicken breasts, cooked and pulled

6 Potatoes, cubed

1 onion, chopped

2 C. frozen corn

1 C. frozen green beans (Optional)

7 oz. can green chilis

1 pkg. taco seasoning

4 c. chicken broth

2 c. water

2 c. milk

about a half block of Velveeta cheese, use more or less to your taste

Tortilla chips

Mix all ingredients together in a crockpot except the milk, velveeta cheese and tortilla chips. Melt the cheese with the milk in a large sauce pan on the stove to make sure you get the nice creamy consistency, then add to the rest of the soup mixture. If you don’t have time for this step, skip it! It will still turn out great. Cook on low for about 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours. Garnish with tortilla chips. I also like to add some red pepper flakes to mine to add a nice little kick!

Enjoy and Happy New Year!

**Side note for Meghan- You can use 4 cups of water instead of the 2 of water and 2 of milk to help with your allergy.**
