Do me this favor. Close your eyes and take a deep breath through your nose.
Have you done it?
Come on, do it.
OK, moving on.
If you were able to take a deep breath, getting all the air and didn’t hack and cough at the end, be thankful. Thank any deity you pray to, (or anyone else’s) or just be thankful for your good health and luck.
Too often when I am in the depths of a cold, I forget the millions of breaths I take a year that work as intended. If your breathing is unencumbered, enjoy it, for soon you will be the sniffling, coughing mess that I recently was.
You’ll really want to smell this Chicken Taco Soup!
Such a quick meal to prepare.
Throw it all in.
Shred the chicken at the end.
And back into the pot.
A great dish for a cold winter day!

- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 (16 ounce) can chili beans
- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans
- 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
- 2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
- 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning
- 3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
- sour cream (optional)
- crushed tortilla chips (optional)
- avacado (optional)
Place the onion, chili beans, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, beer, and diced tomatoes in a slow cooker. Add taco seasoning, and stir to blend. Lay chicken breasts on top of the mixture, pressing down slightly until just covered by the other ingredients. Set slow cooker for low heat, cover, and cook for 5 hours.
Remove chicken breasts from the soup, and allow to cool long enough to be handled. Shred the chicken. Stir the shredded chicken back into the soup, and continue cooking for 2 hours. Serve topped with shredded Cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.
