Slow Cooker Southwestern Chicken Soup step by step

  1. Dump all but garnish ingredients into your slow cooker and give it a few good stirs..
  2. Cook on low for 7 to 9 hours, or high for 5 to 7, depending on how hot your slow cooker gets..
  3. It's always nice if you can give the soup a few gentle stirs throughout the cooking process, but if you can't manage that because you're out of the house, then you can give it a stir and adjust the seasoning as necessary as soon as you get home. This will give the soup some time to more evenly and thoroughly absorb flavor before you sit down to enjoy it..
  4. I like it with a little steamed rice, some chopped onions and cilantro on top, a good extra squeeze of lime, and a few lashings of Tapatío. :) Enjoy!.
