Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken and Rice Soup

Fall is definitely my favorite season. Today is a perfect cool fall day and I figured the perfect time to make some soup. I basically use my slow cooker for all of my soups. I like the fact that it can simmer all day and if I'm out and about I can come home and dinner is ready! I've made chicken tortilla soup plenty of times and it is a favorite in our house but I wanted to mix it up a bit and decided on Tex-Mex Chicken and Rice soup. I actually enjoyed this more than my chicken tortillas soup. This is definitely going to be a keeper!

Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken and Rice Soup
Serves 8
Cal 87, Carbs 9.5, Fat 1.2, Fiber 1.1, Protein 10.2

6 cups fat free/low sodium chicken broth
12 oz. fajita style boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
1 1/2 cups chunky salsa
1 can chopped green chiles
1 cup corn
2 cups cooked brown rice
shredded cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream, cilantro (for toppings)

Add all ingredients except for rice into your slow cooker. Stir, cover, and cook on low for 6 hours. During last 30 minutes of cooking stir in rice. Continue cooking until rice is tender. Top with cheese, tortillas chips, sour cream, and cilantro if desired. Enjoy!


  1. This looks yummy. Will definitely be on my meal plan for next week. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. This would be the perfect soup for me. I could eat it all week, LOL. Thanks for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday.

  3. Stopping by from Wimsy Wednesday. Your soup looks really good! I just got a new Cuisinart Slow Cooker, so your recipe came at the perfect time. Pinning!

  4. I made this yesterday and it was so yummy! I have a question though, when I added 2 cups of brown rice it soaked up all the broth! Every last bit of it! Was it supposed to be 2 cups of cooked rice, not uncooked? Thank you again for sharing, it was really good!

  5. Yes, two cups cooked rice. I can't believe I left that out! I'm glad you still enjoyed it! :)
