Chicken Taco Soup


I love taco soup! This is so easy to make and very comforting  flavors! If you have never made taco soup now is the time to pursue it! Even if you have a smaller family then ours you can freeze the leftovers in small containers and have a premade lunch (it never lasts long enough in our house). I hope every one's having a fabulous week! I have been so thankful for all the new and old friends who have been reading and commenting on the blog, I love to hear what everyone has to say!

Add chicken stock, diced tomatoes with juice, corn (drained), 1/2 the meat off of a whole baked chicken skin and bones removed and chopped, black bean and kidney beans (drained) stir well. Bring to a simmer and turn to low cook for at least 30 minutes or if you have all day let the soup cook on low.
