The great thing is that you just throw everything into a crockpot and let it go.  By the end of the day, dinner is ready to go and you don’t have to wait around for the oven to be ready or stand over a stove.

My family thought it tasted similar to Southwest Chicken Bake only in a soup instead of a casserole.  My family loves that one too so this was a winner all the way!

You can add all kinds of toppings – sour cream, crushed chips, avocado, more cheese, olives, etc.  Whatever you like, go for it!  The ooey gooey stringy cheese gets me every time.  So I usually add some on top!  Pair it with my very favorite Mexican Corn Brunch Bread and you are all set.

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

    IF YOU USE TORTILLA CHIPS ON TOP OF THE SOUP AFTER IT’S DONE, USE PRINGLE’S PLAIN OR NACHO CHEESE TORTILLA’S CHIPS. THEY JUST CAME OUT ON THE MARKET ABOUT 6 OR 7 MONTHS AGO, SO THEY ARE FAIRLY NEW, BUT BOY ARE THEY GOOD. WE REALLY LIKE THEM A LOT BETTER THEN MOST OTHER BRANDS ON THE STORE SHELF.

    Mique this is FANTASTIC!!!!!!
    I made this (doubled the recipe) for our pot luck last night at square dancing and everyone loved it. I took a chance making something that I’d had never tried…… good choice on my part!!! It was cool wet winter’s day and everyone needed it warm up and then dance it off afterwards. There was tons of food so they had to choose. And choose they did!! I had enough left to take some to a sick friend and give 2 portions to my BF to take home AND I had enough for lunch tomorrow.
    WONDERFUL recipe!!! Can’t say enough nice things about it.

    (when I doubled it I used one can of kernel corn and 2 cans of cream corn, only one can of black beans, 1 tsp of fresh ground cumin and 3 cans of cream of chicken soup. Everything else – including the optionals – was as in the recipe. Great Great Great!!!!)

      I was wondering the same and it looks like it is raw. Recipe says it’s slightly adapted from Campbells so I looked at their recipe and it mentions that you let it cook for 4-5 hours or until chicken is cooked all the way through.

    This looks so delicious! I’m slowly branching into soups (and have loved the past few that came out of my crockpot!) and have been eyeing a tortilla soup, but I do believe this is the one I will have to try! It looks simply amazing!!
