Mexican Cream Taco Soup

     If you like a deep savory hearty soup, I have answers.  My Mexican Cream Taco Soup is perfect for a large crowd and will put a satisfied smile on everyone's face.  This is higher in fat than my normal recipe, so feel free to swap out the Heavy Whipping Cream for Half -n-Half or even low calorie Cashew Milk.  Other options are to reduce the amount used, same goes for the cheese in the soup.  As is, each 1 1/4 cup is 339 calories, 20g net carbs and 25g protein.  Next time you have many mouths to feed, fill your crock pot with all these ingredients and sit back and enjoy the party!  :)

Ingredients for 16~1 1/4 cup servings~
2.5 pounds Chicken Breasts
1 packet Taco Seasoning
1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
1 yellow Sweet Onion, diced
1 Tablespoon chopped Garlic
Dash Cayenne Pepper
1 Tablespoon Chicken Base, or 3 Chicken Bouillon Cubes
8oz shredded Mexican Blend Cheese (can sub with Cheddar or other preference)
16oz (Pint) Heavy Whipping Cream
1 can Rotel
15oz Dark Kidney Beans, drained
15oz Cannellini Beans, drained
15oz Pinto Beans, drained
15oz Black Beans, drained
15oz Corn, drained

Sliced Green Onions, for garnish
Shredded Cheese, for garnish if desired (not included in macros)
Sour Cream, for garnish if desired (not included in macros)

     Let me start by saying that I use a slow cooker disposable liner before ever using my crock pot, otherwise spray with Pam and you are on your own for clean up.  After lining your crock pot, add Chicken Breast and sprinkle with half of Taco Seasonings, top with diced Green Peppers and Onion, and sprinkle remaining half of Taco Seasoning, Garlic and Cayenne Pepper, add lid and cook on low for 8 hours.  Remove lid, shred Chicken in pot, it should literally fall apart with a little forking, stir in Chicken Base, then add Cheese and stir til melted, finish with stirring in Cream, then Rotel, the Beans and Corn.  Keep on low for another hour, or til heated thru.  Garnish with Green Onions, and any other desired toppings.  Enjoy  :)
