Southwestern Chicken and Potato Soup

This Slow Cooker Southwestern Chicken and Potato Soup is just loaded with fresh flavor plus it's healthy.  A great Slow Cooker recipe that can be ready and waiting for you at the end of the day.  This is a wonderful Soup to take to a covered dish dinner and that is where this soup is headed.  I am excited to share it with you today.

Slow Cooker Southwestern Chicken and Potato Soup

Southwestern Chicken and Potato Soup
Miz Helen's Kitchen
3/4 pound uncooked boneless chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled cut into 1 inch cubes
1 large onion, chopped
29 oz. canned diced tomatoes, salsa-style with chiles, undrained
14 1/2 oz fat free chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, not thawed
Mix all ingredients, except corn, in a 4 quart or larger slow cooker; cover and cook on low heat for 6 hours.  After 6 hours stir in corn and cover slow cooker and cook on low heat for about 30 minutes more.
Recipe Tips From Miz Helen
I adjusted the seasons because we like a lot of spice.
Spice
1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoon dried cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
Corn
I used roasted corn from my freezer. When we are roasting corn on the grill, we always make extra, cut it off the cob and freeze it. It is great to have for just this purpose.
I doubled this recipe and put the extra servings in the freezer. These will be great on one of those busy days when there is no time to cook.

  32. I'll use your tip about roasting the corn on the grill then freezing it. It would be a little bite of summer.

  33. This soup looks so yummy especially in the colder months. Will be trying it soon. Its still warm enough during the day (here in southern az) to break out the bbq and get some roasted corn. Never froze it before. Great idea :)
