Chicken Taco Soup in the Crockpot

      We have come to the end of the cold weather ... knock on wood!!!  But, I had to get just one more crockpot meal in there before summer.  And chicken taco soup was just the ticket !!!  The nutritionals are pretty decent as well~ 205 calories per 1 1/4 cups, with 1.4g fat, 33.3g Carbs, 10g fiber, and 16.9g protein ;)

1 chopped yellow onion
1 16oz can black beans
1 16oz can light red kidney beans
1 16oz can dark red kidney beans
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 16oz can corn, with spices if possible like red peppers and chili's
3 14.5oz cans diced tomatoes with chilies ( or Mild Rotel)
1 packet taco seasoning
1 Tablespoon Cumin
1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
24oz boneless skinless chicken tenders
Shredded Cheddar Cheese for garnish
Avocado slices for garnish
Cilantro for garnish

     Combine beans, onion, corn, tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder and taco seasoning in a slow cooker.  Place chicken on top and cover.  Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours.  Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred.  Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in.  Top with a Tablespoon shredded cheddar cheese, avocado slice and cilantro if desired.  Enjoy  ;)
