Slow Cooker Mexican Soup.

This slow cooker Mexican soup is perfect for a cold Winters night, especially one of those night's when you know you won't want to come home from work and start making tea from scratch! I found the original recipe for this on a blog a while ago and could kick myself as I didn't save it. Since then I've tried to remember the ingredients and adapted this quite a few times into something that's probably far from the original recipe no doubt! Anyway, this meal has quickly become one of our favourite teas in this house so I thought I would share it with you in today's post. Enjoy!

Ingredients (Serves Four) 
Two chicken breasts. 
400g tin of mixed beans. 
400g tin of chopped tomatoes. 
400g tin of broth.
200g of salsa. 
Two tbsp of sunflower oil.
One small onion finely chopped. 
One tsp of garlic powder/one clove of finely chopped garlic.
Four small tortilla wraps ripped into small pieces.
One tsp of chilli powder. 
One tsp of cumin seeds. 
One tsp of cayenne pepper.
Nachos (as many as you fancy).
Grated cheese (as much as you like).
Sour cream to garnish.  

Add all of the ingredients into your slow cooker, minus the grated cheese, nachos and sour cream. Depending on how long you're leaving it for, you should either set the slow cooker on high for six hours or low if you plan on leaving it longer. We're out all day at work so we end up leaving it for about 10 hours altogether on low. 

Just before the end of the cooking time, remove the chicken breasts and using two forks, shred the chicken before placing the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker. 

Serve in bowls and garnish with nachos, a blob of sour cream and grated cheese. If you like some extra kick, pop a few chopped jalapenos in too. 

So good, the Schnauzer wanted some...

Hope you enjoy - let me know how it turns out.
