Chicken Taco Soup

I got this recipe a long time ago, then I lost it. I could never find a replacement that I liked as much. Finally I made friends on Facebook with the person who gave it to me in the first place, and asked her to give it to me again. Thanks Krisi!
Chicken Taco Soup

3 cooked chicken breasts – cut up in small pieces
3-4 cans of beans -- I used pinto, kidney, and black.
1 can of corn
1 can diced tomatoes (if you like spicy use a can of rotel
2 cans chicken broth
(or one can chicken broth & one can tomato sauce)
8 Tbls taco seasoning (or one packet)

Put everything together in the crock-pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. This can also be made on the stovetop; basically you are just heating everything up and melding the flavors together.

Serve with any of the following for toppings:
Sour Cream
Tortilla Chips Crumbled up
Cilantro (I generally also put this into the soup if I have some on hand)

She mentioned in the recipe that she puts some cilantro in the soup if she has some. I definitely would do this because for me that is part of what makes this soup great. I also sometimes cut up some corn tortillas in strips and fry them to go on top of the soup instead of using chips.
