Chicken Tortilla Soup

I modified this recipe from one I got in Arizona at Dinners Done Right. It's a big hit in our family. There are only three bean-eaters in our house, but they blend into this recipe so well, no one notices them (the beans, not the bean-eaters, of course). I use mild ingredients to accommodate my family's tastebuds; you can spice this up if you'd like!

1 cup refried beans
1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes in puree
1/4 cup green taco sauce
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cloves garlic, minced

Combine all ingredients and place them in a medium to large slow cooker. Cook on high for 3 hours, or on low for 6 hours, or until heated through.


Tortilla chips or Fritos
Shredded cheese
Chopped fresh cilantro
Sour cream
Lime wedges
