Instructions

    1. Prepare Ingredients:
        • Rinse and drain the black beans.

        • Drain the corn.

        • Mince the garlic.

        • Chop the onion.

    1. Assemble in the Slow Cooker:
        • Place the boneless, skinless chicken breasts at the bottom of your slow cooker.

        • Add the black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, and diced green chilies over the chicken.

        • Add the chopped onion and minced garlic.

    1. Add Seasonings and Broth:
        • Sprinkle the taco seasoning, ground cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper over the ingredients in the slow cooker.

        • Pour the low-sodium chicken broth over everything.

    1. Cook:
        • Cover the slow cooker with its lid and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. The chicken should be tender and easily shred with a fork.

    1. Shred the Chicken:
        • Once the cooking time is up, remove the chicken breasts from the slow cooker and shred them using two forks.

        • Return the shredded chicken to the slow cooker and mix it into the soup.

    1. Add Lime Juice (Optional):
        • If you like a burst of freshness, add the juice of 1 lime to the soup and stir well.

    1. Serve and Garnish:
        • Ladle the hot soup into bowls.

        • Top with your favorite garnishes: chopped fresh cilantro, avocado slices, shredded cheese, and a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.

    1. Enjoy:
        • Serve the soup with tortilla chips or warm tortillas on the side, if desired.
