You’re gonna love the aroma from this Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Soup while it cooks away all day in your slow cooker!!!! Yummmmm, not overly spicy just loaded with flavors that come together in one delicious dish. Add in more spice if you desire, or customize with black beans or pinto beans. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or tortilla strips on top and don’t forget the cornbread! Another fabulous slow cooker meal that you’ll be adding to your rotation!

To be really honest – this soup made me fall in love. Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken Soup may look like a simple recipe (which it is thankfully) but it has such amazing flavor. It’s so delish on a cold winters night and it’s so perfect even on a hot summers day. That’s how good this soup is! You can eat it year round!

  4. Hi Lori,

  5. This was really good soup! But it was way too spicy! I had to mix some white rice into it after cooking to make it so we could eat it. Any advice on how to tone it down without changing it too much? I’m not sure if it was the rotel or the salsa verde that made it so hot.

  6. I haven’t done much slow cooker cooking because of raw chicken… I was reading some of your other recipes too and want to give some of them a try. Just to clarify, I put raw chicken in the crock pot for all the recipes, even with the other ingredients and it’s fine? -Crock pot newbie!

  7. I love anything close to Tortilla Chicken Soup. This recipe looks great. Pinning!

  8. This recipe was AMAZING. It smelled and tasted sooooo good!! I dropped a small spoonful of sour cream on mine and my hubby sprinkled some cheese on his. I’m a bit of a tortilla chip addict, so I ate some of it with a spoon and scooped up some of the chicken with chips and ate it that way 🙂

  9. LOVED this! We also added some shredded cheese, avacado and sour cream and a bit of cilantro before serving.

  10. Should I cook the ck first to shred or will it shred on its own?

  11. This looks great!! Quick question on the freezer meal: do I freeze a of the ingredients raw (so before I cook it in the slow cooker) or do I cook it in the slow cooker and then freeze it? Thank you!

    • Hi Jasmine, All ingredients for this particular recipe are uncooked prior to freezing. When you are ready to cook, place into your refrigerator the night before, in the morning dump contents into slow cooker. Hope you enjoy!
