This is more like a chili than a soup, but it’s really good and low fat, not to mention cheap! Freezes well also.

1 onion, chopped
1 (16oz) can chili beans, Ranch style beans, or pinto beans
1 (15oz) can black beans
1 (15oz) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
1 can chicken broth
1 (28oz) can diced tomatoes (could use 1 or 2 cans Rotel if you wanted)
1 pkg taco seasoning
3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts

Place all ingredients in crockpot, place chicken breasts on top and press down into the mixture. Allow to cook on low for 7 hours.

Before serving, remove chicken and shred/dice, add back to the crockpot.

Serving options:
shredded cheese
sour cream
crushed tortilla chips

I like this best served over rice with cheese on top, but hubby prefers chips and cheese.  This is soooo good and easy to make!

Crockpot Saucy Scalloped Potatoes

4 cups thin sliced potatoes
1 can cream of mushroom soup
12oz can Pet milk (evaporated milk)
lg onion, sliced (I use onion powder since kiddo doesn’t like onions 😛 )
2 TBSP butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Spray crockpot with non-stick spray. Combine potatoes with other ingredients and mix well – pour into crockpot. For thicker sauce, sprinkle 2 TBSP flour in between potato layers. Cook on high for one hour, then reduce to low for 4 to 5 hours until potatoes are tender.

For a one dish meal, add 1 1/2 cups chopped ham to the mixture. I also top with shredded cheddar cheese a few minutes before serving. WONDERFUL and very easy!!
