Do you love easy crock pot meals? Yeah – me too. Easy Family Dinner Ideas are my favorite. I love those days when I can throw everything in there & let it go & dinner is done. As these days get shorter it seems like the hubs gets home & before I know it- it’s time for bed. So anything I can do to speed up the dinner process the better it is for my sanity. A long while ago I came up with this recipe for Jalapeno Cheddar Chicken Soup that has turned into a family favorite. I’m sure it will be for you too!!
It’s not completely homemade- there is a little canned soup & chicken stock involved. But that’s part of the ease of it all. All these ingredients I keep on hand at all times – so when I am in a pinch for dinner it’s really nice to throw this together & not worry about it.
These cooler temps definitely call for a warm & hearty soup.
I am seriously obsessed with this one. I have a hard time not going back for seconds.
When we have company & need to make a lot – this recipe doubles quite well. Sometimes I do that even when we are not having company & then we have leftovers for a couple days. So one easy meal turns into 2-3…maybe that’s why I love it so much.
Jalapeno Cheddar Chicken Soup
- 5 pieces boneless skinless chicken breast - cut into chunks
- 26 ounces cream of chicken soup 1 large can (just the soup- don't add water as this will be taken care of with the broth)
- 16 ounces chicken broth you can use water instead if needed
- 12 ounces salsa
- 3 sweet peppers - diced (we love using the mini sweet peppers like these https://www.walmart.com/ip/Fresh-Mini-Sweet-Peppers-16-oz-bag/10324377?athbdg=L1200 )
- ½ purple onion - diced
- ½ bell pepper - diced (whichever color you prefer)
- 2 jalapeno peppers - diced
- 1 tomato - diced
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Combine the chicken, cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, salsa, sweet peppers, onion, bell pepper, jalapeno peppers, and tomato in the crock pot & cover.
- Cook on high for 4-6 hours - stirring occasionally.
- After about 4 hours - remove the chicken & pull it apart in a separate bowl to shred.
- Return the now pulled chicken back to soup & cook another 1-2 hours on low.
- In the final 30 minutes - add the cheese - stir.
- Top with additional cheese when serving if desired.
