What Type of Chicken to Use

I use skinless chicken breasts. You can also use chicken thighs. Dark meat tends to have more flavor, is more tender, and will follow the same cook time noted in the recipe.

Feel free to grab a rotisserie chicken and/or use fully cooked chicken. If using cooked chicken combine the ingredients and heat/cook until warm.

How to Add Flavor to the Soup

I love to use my Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe which includes smoked paprika, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper if you like a spicy kick.

You can also use a store-bought package if you like. I love to make my own because it’s cheaper and the store packs usually have added sugar and preservatives.

Can You Use Frozen Chicken Breasts?

If using frozen chicken it typically follows the same cook time or will need additional time, up to around an hour.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 garlic cloves Minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 15.5 oz canned black beans
  • 15.5 oz canned red beans
  • 15.5 oz diced chilies and tomatoes
  • 1 cup corn Frozen, canned, or fresh.
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 4 oz cream cheese Softened. If your cream cheese isn't softened it will take some time to melt into the soup.

Homemade Taco Seasoning (You can use a store-bought packet if you wish).

Optional Toppings

Instructions

Slow Cooker Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients (except for the cream cheese) to the slow cooker. Cook for 4 hours on High or 8 hours on Low.
    You can opt to add your spices, salt, and pepper at the end once the dish has cooked so that you can start low, build, and season to taste.
  • Open the pot. Remove the chicken and shred. Add it back to the pot along with the cream cheese. Stir.
  • Serve once the cheese has melted.

Instant Pot Instructions

  • Place the Instant Pot on the saute setting. Add the garlic and onions. Cook for 2-3 minutes until both are soft.
  • Add all of the ingredients (except for the corn and cream cheese) to the Instant Pot.
  • Close the pot and seal. Cook on Manual High-Pressure for 20 minutes.
  • When the pot indicates it has finished, allow the steam to release naturally for 10 minutes instead of quick release.
  • Open the pot. Remove the chicken and shred. Add it back to the pot along with the cream cheese and corn. Stir.
  • Place the Instant Pot on the saute function. Add the cream cheese and corn. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the corn is soft and the cheese has melted.

Notes

If using the slow cooker method, you can saute your onions and garlic before adding it to the slow cooker if you wish.
If you want to make this recipe on the stove, I suggest chopping your chicken into cubes and searing them prior to heating up the soup or use fully cooked store-bought chicken.
If you want a creamier soup, add more cream cheese and/or shredded cheese.
Any type of beans will work for this recipe.
Cream cheese can be substituted for milk (it won’t be as creamy) or omitted if you wish.
Any type of chicken will work for this recipe, including a rotisserie chicken, but you won’t need to slow cook it if you use fully cooked chicken. You will just need to warm up the soup.

Your insta story was perfect timing last night! I had all the ingredients in the pantry and chicken in the fridge. Threw in together in about 5 minutes and now I have lunch for the week! It's delicious. I'll try the instant pot version next time. Thank you for sharing!
