Crock Pot Chicken Soup


This is the Second recipe for Soup Week!  You can see the first recipe HERE.  You can also still link up to Saturday's Party HERE.

 I'm a creamy soup person.  I'm more than happy to admit it.  I don't care much for chili's, stews, "dark" soups.  I think my mind has connected creamy soups=cheesy goodness  dark soups=spicy.  I have a hard time with hot spices, I just can't handle the heat.

This soup, however, had just enough heat for me.  You could even amp up the heat factor depending on what type of salsa you used.  I used a salsa verde, since that's what I had on hand.  The nice thing about this soup, besides throwing everything in the crockpot and leaving it, is the options for eating.  You can scoop the soup and eat it with the chips, you can crush the chips up and mix them in with everything (my favorite), you can forgo the chips completely and just eat the soup!  AND it freezes up nicely.  Always a plus in my book!
