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!

  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!
