Chicken Fajita Soup

I love getting a rotisserie chicken.  It provides us with a meal and then leftovers lead us into another meal creation.  Not to mention I cook the bones to make my own chicken broth.  I use to think my mom was CrAzY for not just buying it out of a box, well needless to say…I’ve turned into her.  Homemade just provides a clean taste and I control the sodium to the broth.  Our last rotisserie chicken helped to create this chicken fajita soup.  I love easy crock pot meals and this is one of them!!!

I prep for my crock pot meals the night before.  My alarm goes off at 5am and I can’t bring myself to enter into the 4:??…that is EARLY!!  The easier I can make my mornings the better.  For this soup, I cut up all the vegetables the night before.  The chicken I also pre-cut the night before when I created the broth.  I then pack them next to each other in the fridge to allow for minimal mistakes early in the morning.

When making soups, I try to use the freshest vegetables.  This soup has vegetables I got at the farmers market.  You can substitute any vegetable for another.  We like crunch in our soups and the yellow green beans will give it.
