Chicken Taco Soup

One thing I love about this recipe is how easy it is and how easy it is to customize. I don’t usually have chicken in a can in my pantry, but I often have leftover chicken, and that works just as well. Another great substitution? Rotisserie chicken! And, you can even use homemade taco seasoning for more flavor when compared to store-bought.

How to Serve 7-Can Soup

We have served this chicken taco soup with sour cream, fresh cilantro, avocado, shredded cheese, diced jalapeno, and diced onion. A little something for everyone!  We set up a serving tray and pass the fixings around the table!  You could also set this up like an appetizer bar!

Add all of the soup ingredients, except the canned chicken, to the bowl of a slow cooker. Cook on low for about 6 hours. Then, in the final 20 minutes or so, add the canned chicken (which is already cooked) to warm it up with the rest of the ingredients.

Can I Make a Vegetarian Version of Chicken Taco Soup?

Yes. Simply don’t add chicken and replace the chicken stock with vegetable stock.

    We had been working around the farm and at 7:30 we were tired and hungry. I was looking for something quick and came across this recipe. I had fixed it once before but forgot to drain everything. This time I fixed it according to the recipe and added 2 cans of chicken instead of one. It was quick, easy and according to my husband…. delicious. We aren’t usually soup eaters when it’s warm (in the 70’s here) but he actually went back for seconds. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe. I will definitely be making it a lot more often.

    I have been a Girl Scout for 40+ years and have been making this One Pot Taco Soup in a cast iron dutch oven forever. Except we call it 8 Can Taco Soup – we add cream of chicken soup. This is recommended for a troop’s first cook out – because each girl can contribute a can to the soup. There is plenty for the whole troop including leaders. If you need more, you can add additional beans or corn. As for the “hot”, you can add red enchilada sauce instead.

    1. Are you outside the US? This is a common size, found at Walmart, Target, all grocery stores. You can use 2- 14.5 ounce cans instead.

  3. I added a can of green chilis and used chicken thighs. It was amazing and my family said they would eat it again. Win!

    My 13 year old daughter made this soup and it was absolutely delicious! We only had SPICEY enchilada sauce so it turned out HOT but delicious none the less. I added some cilantro to the pot before serving and then I added diced avocado to each bowl and it was perfect! We will definitely make this again.

  5. This looks super easy and delicious! I think I could even make this after work and still have time to actually eat it for dinner! Thank You! ❤️

    I’ve made this several times. It’s so delicious. I use shredded chicken from the deli at my grocery store because it’s easier for me. I love this soup.
