Crock Pot Convenience: Effortless Slow Cooker Option

For those who savor the convenience of a slow cooker, adapting this recipe is a breeze. Simply combine all soup ingredients, excluding the canned chicken, in the slow cooker. Let it simmer on low for approximately 6 hours. In the final 20 minutes, introduce the canned chicken to meld its flavors with the rest of the ingredients.

Vegetarian Twist and Sodium Conscious Choices

Exploring dietary preferences? Craft a vegetarian version by omitting chicken and substituting vegetable stock for chicken stock. Concerned about sodium levels? Opt for low-sodium variations of the canned ingredients featured in the recipe.

Preserving the Fiesta: Storage and Freezing Tips

To store the soup in the refrigerator, transfer it to an airtight container or a sealable plastic bag, ensuring freshness for 3-5 days. For an extended shelf life, freeze the soup in airtight containers or freezer-safe plastic bags, clearly labeling and dating each. Your frozen treasure will maintain its quality for several months.
