Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good! My boyfriend and I had this this evening. I had the recipe from ordering the 30 meal kit. IT. WAS. DELICIOUS! And so easy to make. We had left overs that I am taking tomorrow to work for lunch. A co-worker said she wanted the recipe and I will definitely be sharing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't get enought of this soup! This soup is a snap to make -- especially if you have Magic Chicken made! I always make it on the stove top - and it's ready in about 15 minutes! We skip adding the tortillas & top with Nacho Cheese Doritos, sour cream and shredded cheddar! LOVE it! I've made it many times since I discovered the recipe about a month ago!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite TS dish! Amazingly easy and yummy! I had two bowls for dinner last night, and two bowls for lunch today! LOL! I'm just trying to figure out how many more jars of Corn, Black Bean I'm ordering... This would be great for company or taking a meal to someone. I loved having it prepped as a freezer meal, because it left almost no dishes to wash, just the slow cooker! I love the lime flavor in here! My son had a second serving also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy slow cooker soup Loved this recipe! A little bit of a kick to it (I used the poblano pepper) but not too spicy. I modified a little by using 2 c of pre-cooked shredded "magic chicken" I had in the freezer instead of cooking the chicken along with the soup. I added it in after all the other ingredients were in the slow cooker about 5 hours and let it cook long enough for the chicken to heat up. We topped it with crushed tortilla chips instead of adding the corn tortillas. I would make this again!
