Food in our house has to be a few simple things:
This soup is all that, plus it’s something you throw in your crockpot and basically forget about til dinner time. So, bonus? It’s a tweak of a recipe I found on Budget Bytes, the first few times I made it it was alright, but it wasn’t heavenly choirs of angels for my tastebuds. And really, food should be. I refused to give up though, because the concept is amazing.
I feel almost embarrassed posting this “recipe” because it’s that easy. I’ve been known to “cheat” and buy the cans of accent chili diced tomatoes for an extra oomph. If you find it too thick can dilute with chicken stock or even plain ol’water. It’s a family favorite, cheap to make and very filling!
Cost (does not include toppings) $3/serving
Diced Tomatoes – $4
Celery – $1
Onion – $0.30
Chicken Breast – $11
Lime – $.70
Taco Seasoning (prepackaged) – $1.70
You could definitely make this recipe cheaper if the chicken was on sale, you used thighs. I find using the three whole breasts make it a very hearty, filling soup.
