Slow cooker Creamy Chicken Taco Soup!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Taco Soup

Reminiscent of the very popular dish King Ranch Chicken in the form a soup. With all the same flavors and the convenience of throwing everything into a slow cooker, this will also quickly become a favorite. Top with fried corn tortilla strips, if desired.

Prep Time:
25 mins
Cook Time:
2 hrs 20 mins
Total Time:
2 hrs 45 mins


  • 1 serving nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 cup diced onion

  • 1 cup diced bell pepper

  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided

  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles (such as RO*TEL®)

  • 1 (10 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup

  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chiles (such as Ortega®)

  • 2 tablespoons oil

  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast

  • 1 (8 ounce) package Neufchatel cheese, softened


  1. Spray a slow cooker with cooking spray. Add onions, bell pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt. Stir in chicken broth, diced tomatoes, condensed soup, and chiles.

  2. Combine oil, taco seasoning, 1 teaspoon salt, cumin, and black pepper in a bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat on all sides. Transfer to the slow cooker.

  3. Cook on Low until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 2 to 3 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the slow cooker and shred.

  4. Add Neufchatel cheese to the slow cooker and stir until melted. Return chicken to the slow cooker and cook until warmed through, 20 to 30 minutes more.

  5. Serve hot and enjoy!

Good morning Will. Sounds good for a chilly day, say in the low 40's or lower. As for my friend Brian England thinking the 60's is cool, for me here in Chicago I might have to consider it a heatwave, ha, ha! Enjoy your day.

Hi Will,
Being the (not) gourmet cook that I am, anything crock pot appeals to me. 😂
