Spicy Chicken and Black Bean Soup (GF)

An easy crock pot recipe from The Peaceful Mom!


  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed (I use 3 cups precooked dried beans from my freezer)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pkg frozen corn kernels
  • 1 jar salsa
  • (I use (1) 24 oz. can diced tomatoes + 2 cubes green sauce*)
  • 1 1/2 tsp.cumin
  • Garnish: sour cream, avocado, fresh cilantro, shredded cheese


  1. Place all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  2. Before serving, use an immersion blender or remove one cup of the soup to a regular blender and blend (to thicken soup).
  3. Return blended soup to pot and stir.

Thanks for sharing. I will try the bean soup & th green sauce. Great idea about freezing in cubes!

My pleasure Vickie! I love using the freezer to save time.

This reminds me of a taco soup I make, except I use beef. I bet chicken is great too. Thanks for sharing your soup at GF Wednesdays! I’ll be highlighting it this week.

I’m making this tomorrow. The only thing I don’t have are the ingredients for the special green sauce. Do you think it’s going to not taste good without it? I realize it won’t be as spicey but I do have some jalepenos I can add to give it an extra kick as well as some cajun seasoning if I don’t think it’s spicy enough. I’m excited to make this though. I’ve been trying to incorporate beans into our meals a lot more lately! Thanks for the great bean recipes!

Hi Stephanie! I think adding the jalapenos would be fine. Sometimes I add green chiles if I don’t have any sauce made. I hope you like it!

It turned out great! My mother in law came over to eat with us because she just had a tooth removed and was in search for somewhere to get soup. So I invited her over to try it. She loved it and we did too! I made some Jiffy corn bread to go with it. So delicious! Definitely going to be a “go to” soup this winter!

Woohoo! I am so glad that you enjoyed it Stephanie, and thanks for taking the time to let me know. :)
