Southwest Chicken Crockpot Soup Recipe - easy meal idea that works well for freezer cooking too.

By contributing writer, Sarah

I love my crock pot. Let’s face it – even those of us that love to cook sometimes just want something quick, easy and delicious. One of my favorite crock pot meals is Southwest Chicken Soup.

Southwest Chicken Soup Recipe

Here is what you will need:



Turn your crock pot on high if you want it done in 3-4 hours, low if you want to let it cook all day.

Add all ingredients above except the chicken breasts.  Add your spices. I would suggest starting with a teaspoon of the spices and adjust the amount of each according to your taste preference.

Stir all ingredients together and place your chicken breast(s) on top.  Cook until your chicken is cooked through and tender.

Once your chicken has been cooked through, remove the chicken and shred it.

Then place the chicken back in the crock pot. Do your final tasting and spicing and enjoy.

That’s it! It is that easy. How about you do you have any go-to crock-pot meals you love?

  1. Yummy, that sounds really good. I have been looking for new crock-pot recipes. By the way, if you have a Trader Joe’s near by try and see if you can find the roasted corn in the freezers section and sub it for the canned corn. When I make my Tortilla Soup in the crock-pot I like the roasted flavor the corn brings.

  2. I’m wanting to print several of your recipes and when I click on the print option you have available on some of them, the recipe ingredients are listed but the instructions are not in the print form.

  3. I made this today and had to post how wonderful this soup is! I used a frozen corn gumbo mix (corn, okra, celery, onions and peppers). Used my batch cooked and frozen black beans – so it made a very quick, throw together meal in my favorite kitchen appliance – the wonderful crock pot! Made a very thick and hearty soup – thanks for sharing!

  4. Out of these 100 recipes can you tell me if any of them can be turned into freezer meals so I can prepare all in one day and then cook them through the week? Thanks for any advice you may have on this.

  5. Can all of the crockpot meals be made on the stove in a regular soup/stewpot? Mainly the southwest chicken soup? If so, would I cook it the same way?

  6. Are all of the crockpot meals able to be made on the stove in a regular soup/stewpot? Mainly the southwest chicken soup? If so, would I cook it the same way?

  7. Hi, I am so excited about your site, was just wondering if the nutritional values are available with the recipes. I am a die hard WW person and have to watch my weight for health reasons.

  8. Is there any nutritional information about the recipes you post? I have family that is on a low sodium diet and was curious to know if there is a list of info.

  9. I was an avid crock pot user for years until I discovered Option 2: Using a pressure cooker, the newer generation with non stick coatings and built in timers. You can even use frozen chicken breast(s). Just combine in the pressure cooker pot and turn it on. It will take 5-10 to build up the pressure, then cook a minimum of 15 and it is done. All those flavors are still infused with soup and meat. Easy to do coming home after work. Assemble for 5-10 min and turn on, help kids with homework (or help yourself to wine) for 30 or so and eat. They now have settings for slow cooking, rice, soup, meat, etc. There are many brands out there so do your research if you are so inclined.

  10. Great soup recipe!
    I’m now gonna try to make it before my GF gets home (I’m in the dog house for forgetting our anniversary!!!) This is her favorite so hopefully it will do the trick.
    Keep up the great work!

  11. what size crockpot do you recommend for these recipes? i have 2 different sizes a 7 quart and a 2 quart i think. thank you for the advice.
