A few years ago while waiting to check out at the grocery store I did some impulse shopping and bought one of those small slow cooker magazines. It was published by Rival, the original maker of the Crock Pot (now owned by Jarden Corp.), so that just seemed like the right thing to do. I immediately began cooking and tried about 10 recipes.
One recipe, Chicken Fiesta Soup, has become a staple in our house. Every fall I look forward to making it and my husband looks forward to eating it. It is a little spicy, so I usually find something else for my kids.
This recipe is both easy and delicious. However, as I am unable to locate my book (possibly a casualty of my last shelf cleaning) all I will say is this- thank goodness for the internet.

Notes From My Experience
I wouldn’t change a thing in this recipe when it comes to ingredients and proportions.
As a cheese lover, I sprinkle lots on my soup- you can’t have too much.
I have texture issues so I don’t crumble and sprinkle tortilla chips on my soup. If you try it, let me know how you like it!
When it comes to chips and cheese though, some tortilla chips with melted cheese on top would be a great accompaniment to this soup!
