Shredded chicken, black beans, salsa verde & more come together in this simple & easy crockpot BLACK BEAN & CHICKEN SOUP. Perfect for chilly winter days!
Do you love a good soup on a chilly winter day? I sure do. Even better if I can make it in the crockpot & just let it go all day while I’m doing things like shoveling snow. We come inside, we’re freezing & we have a delicious hot dinner waiting for us & it’s so perfect. Honestly, I’m just so grateful that I took the 10 minutes to throw it all in there before heading out. The last thing I feel like doing after spending the day shoveling snow is come inside & cook something. After all that work I just want to curl up by the fire & get cozy. This soup is perfect for that.
I just love making soups because I can make them as light or as hearty as my mood dictates. Sometimes I follow a recipe I created in the past. Other times I wing it. For this one I just started with my chicken & then pulled things from the pantry & started adding. I actually do this a lot based on what I have on hand at the time & the majority of the time it comes together quite nicely as it did with this soup.
