I love soups in the cold months of winter and I especially love crock-pot soup recipes—fix them and forget them and come back when you’re ready for a hot meal without spending hours in the kitchen. This recipe is simple, spicy, healthy & filling!

The nice thing about this crock-pot soup recipe is that you basically just need to gather ingredients and dump it into the crock. After cooking all day, the chicken becomes really tender and easy to shred. About 30 minutes before serving, remove the chicken breast to shred the chicken. It’s super simple!
