Greetings, all! How was your long weekend? Hopefully fun and relaxing!
Let’s get down to business, shall we? I’m so excited to share this crazy delicious soup with you today! Like, I haven’t been this excited since sharing this Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup or this BBQ Chicken Chili. I mean, I really love all of the soup recipes I’ve posted on the site, but this one is just different.
Probably because it has beer.
The beer, fire-roasted tomatoes with chiles, and my all-time favorite taco seasoning push so much flavor into this chili. Smoky, a little spicy, and oh so flavorful. It seriously is a fiesta in your mouth!
But all this flavor doesn’t come at a high caloric price – hallelujah! Just 234 calories per serving and packed with protein and fiber. This chili will keep you going for hours and hours!
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies (such as Rotel), undrained
- 1 (15-ounce) can fire-roasted salsa style diced tomatoes*, undrained
- 1 (12-ounce) can or bottle beer
- 1 (1.25-ounce) package taco seasoning**
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 8 ounces shredded Mexican cheese blend, for topping
- Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, crushed tortilla chips, and sliced green onions for topping, if desired
- Place the onion, beans, tomato sauce, tomatoes, and beer into the bowl of a slow cooker. Add the taco seasoning and stir to combine. Add chicken breasts to slow cooker, pressing them into the mixture just until covered by the other ingredients. Cover and cook on low heat for 4 hours.
- After 4 hours, remove the chicken from the soup. When cool enough to handle, shred chicken. Add shredded chicken back to slow cooker. Cook for another 1.5 hours.
- Serve topped with cheese, a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, crushed tortilla chips, and sliced green onion.
**I get this Spice Islands variety at Costco. It is seriously the best ever!
