Slow Cooker Rotel Chicken Soup

Slow Cooker Rotel Chicken Soup, heyyyyy-ya.

Slow cooker soups are one of the greatest things to ever exist. I mean, who doesn’t love walking in the door after a busy day to a big pot of delicious soup and not to mention the yummy aroma filling the room? I know I do. My initial plan for this soup was to make my good ole white Chili recipe, but I randomly decided to add some black beans, which led to a can of corn, followed by a can of rotel, pickeld Jalepeños, etc. etc. I.couldn’t.stop.

The result, however, was straight up deliciousness. It’s like a white chili chicken tortilla soup on steroids. Simply throw everything but the beans, corn, and jalepenos into your crock before zipping out of the door. The chicken will shred perfectly when you get home, and all you’ll have to do is add in those last few items, and bowl it up!
