Megan's JA Magic

Chicken Fajita Soup

Megan’s favorite recipe to enjoy is Chicken Fajita Soup.

“It’s so delicious that I can eat it leftover for days!”


  • 1 can of corn
  • 2 small cans of Rotel tomatoes with green chilis
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • Taco seasonings- you can make your own or use two store bought packets.
  • 6 large chicken breasts


  1. In a large crockpot, cook on low for 4-5 hours, then shred chicken. Let it cook for 2 more hours.
  2. Add 2 cups of cheese and some cilantro to taste.  You can also add precooked white rice at this point if you wish to add more thickness.
  3. Stir well and serve!
