Crockpot picante chicken and black bean soup

11 Aug

This was really yummy. I also made some homemade tortilla chips to go along with it! The original recipe called for blending an additional can of black beans with broth to get that creamy consistency. After reading the reviews, I opted to put in a can of retried beans instead and save myself the hassle of pulling out the blender!
