A feel-good soup with a little more zip.
Slow cooker chicken soup is one of those dishes that fills the home with yummy aromas. It’s a comfort food staple – just the kind of recipe that’s a ton of fun to twist with a little extra spice.
This recipe uses two types of pepper: jalapeño for the heat and red bell pepper for a little extra flavor. It’s a nice amount of spice – not so hot as to turn off those with sensitive taste buds. The cumin and taco seasoning give it a little more Southwestern taste too.
- Combine all ingredients (other than the rice) into a slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours (high 5 - 6 hours).
- Stir rice into the soup 1 hour prior to cooking completion and cover again.
