Shredded Chicken Taco Soup

A cold front has arrived and it *finally* feels like December here in North Texas! It went from the low 80s on Monday to the 50s today and boy oh boy my body was not ready for this! I start shivering the minute I walk outside and you better believe I have been pulling out all my scarves to bundle up in for recess duty. ;)

And I don’t know about you, but when cold weather comes, I start craving soup. For my lunches this week I decided to take my shredded chicken from these tacos (which I absolutely love) and convert it into a fun, easy soup. The result? Absolutely delicious! The best part was that all I had to do was dump all the ingredients into the crockpot, cook on high for 4 hours, then shred the chicken and it was done. Easy peasy! You’re gonna love my shredded chicken taco soup!

This chicken taco soup is the perfect comfort meal for those cold winter nights we have ahead, and for those days when a huge elaborate meal just isn’t gonna happen. It also makes perfect leftovers (#priorities) and is great for feeding a crowd! Add some rice to the mix for a heartier meal and you’ll be full and happy in no time. You’re welcome!

    I agree!! I think it would be fun to mix things up with this recipe and make it more “holiday flavored”, with ingredients like sage, turkey, etc… what do you think?

    This looks so tasty! I actually make a similar chicken taco soup in my Crockpot. The heartiness of these soups is perfect for chilly weather. I might have to make some next week.
