Easy Southwest Black Bean and Chicken Crockpot Soup

Lately, I’ve just been throwing stuff in the crockpot and hoping it turns out.  There are so many other things to worry about/spend time doing.  Cooking just isn’t one of them right now.  Don’t get me wrong.  I actually do like to cook.  When I have time… I haven’t had a surplus of that lately though, so the crockpot has been my helper.  This is was so ridiculously easy and delicious.  Healthy too-TRIFECTA! 🙂Blog SW Black Bean Chicken Crockpot Soup-3


    • 6 Chicken Breasts (I only had time to partially thaw the frozen ones I had and it was fine)
    • 1 Cup Pico de Gallo (or any salsa you have on hand/like)
    • 2 Cans of black beans with the liquid
    • 1 Onion diced
    • 1 1/2 Cups Chicken Stock
    • 1 Tsp Chili Powder
    • 1 Cup Quinoa (could also use rice)
    • 1 Adobo Chili finely diced
    • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Throw it all in the crockpot on low for 5 hours (more wouldn’t hurt it, I don’t think).  Shred the chicken with fork and enjoy!!

Below is a picture I took with my phone after I dumped it all in the pot.  I often wonder what things look like before they cook, just to make sure I’m doing it right 🙂Blog SW Black Bean Chicken Crockpot Soup-1dit-elle-Lauren
