Slow Cooker Mexican Corn Soup Recipe

Mexican Corn Soup Recipe

 

This is one of those recipes that I’ve been making for years.  When I first discovered it, my 2nd child was a baby (she’s 15 now!).   My husband and I thought it was amazing!  I would take it as a meal to friends who had just had a baby and I would always hear the same results.  Everyone seems to love it!  Everyone, except maybe those who don’t like corn.  It is chock full of corn, so if you’re on a low glycemic index type of diet, then you’ll want to steer clear from this recipe.

 

I like making this one in the slow cooker, because I can turn it on and forget it, but it’s also very possible to cook it on the stovetop and have it completed  within a reasonable amount of time.

Slow Cooker Mexican Corn Soup

Ingredients

4 cups chicken broth
4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breast
32 oz bag frozen corn
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp garlic powder
4 chicken bouillon cubes
2 4 oz cans of diced green chilies
2 cups milk
salt & pepper to taste
Fritos
Sour Cream (topping – optional)
Salsa (topping – optional)

 

Directions:

Place chicken, chicken broth, corn, green chilies and spices in slow cooker. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4 hours.  Once the chicken is cooked, chop up with kitchen shears while still in the slow cooker.  Add the milk and let warm through by waiting another 30 minutes or so.  Serve over Fritos chips and top with sour cream and salsa.

 

Freezer to Slow Cooker Instructions:

Place chicken, chicken broth, corn, green chilies and spices in a freezer safe bag.  Label and lay as flat as possible to freeze.  On cooking day, follow instructions above.

Chicken Tetrazzini Slow Cooker Recipe

Is anybody else having trouble getting dinner served in a timely manner?  The other day, I was on my way to a doctor’s appointment in a town about an hour away and remembered it.  I hadn’t put dinner in the slow cooker!  What?  NOOOO!   Not again!  I’m so bad about remembering dinner.  Isn’t that crazy?  The one thing that repeats itself every single day of my life, I manage to forget about until I don’t have time to do it.  Do you do that, too?  Please tell me I’m not the only one!

 

Thankfully, I have a really handy group of tools.  They’re called children.  Specifically, I had a teenager still at home, not gone anywhere yet that day.  He’s not really confident in his cooking skills, but I assured him, he could just grab some ingredients and throw them in the slow cooker.  The hardest thing he was going to have to do was cut an onion.  That didn’t sound so bad.  He agreed he’d save the day for me as long as I’d text him the ingredients I was supposed to add.  So, I pulled over to the side of the road and sent him the list.  And that’s how we got to eat this amazing dinner, called Chicken Tetrazzini.
