Crockpots are so versatile when it comes to making so many things! I love playing with classic flavors and turning them into something new and unexpected like this Crockpot Jalapeno Popper Chicken Soup recipe. The crockpot makes the best soup no matter what the recipe. That slow cook has time to really meld the ingredients together in a delicious symphony of flavors.
How to Make Crockpot Jalapeño Popper Chicken Soup
Into your crockpot place 1 1/2 lbs boneless chicken, seasonings, peppers, onions, and 3 cups of College Inn Chicken Broth. This broth is the key because every great soup begins with a great base. Layer in your favorite veggies, meats, and grains with College Inn broths and stocks for a flavorful bowl the whole family will love.
After 4 hours on high take the lid off and shred your chicken with a fork.
Mix in the cheese, cream cheese, and a little cream. Stir it and let it sit for about 5 minutes to give everything a chance to melt. Then give it one more stir.
Serve this delicious Crockpot Jalapeno Popper Chicken Soup with some additional cheese, diced jalapenos, and little-crumbled bacon If you want to get crazy, a dollop of sour cream.
What Size Crockpot?
I recommend a larger crockpot for soups and stews. It really helps prevent spillage and messes. For this recipe I would use a 5 qt Crockpot or larger. I have an older version of this Hamilton Beach Programmable Slow Cooker and I LOVE IT!
What to serve with Jalapeno Popper Soup?
First of all this soup is incredible on it's own. There is so much flavor in this one. Obviously you want to top it with extra sour cream, cheese, bacon, and some sliced jalapeños. It is amazing with tortilla chips or some warm crusty bread like thisHomemade French Bread Recipe. YUM!
