Zesty Chicken Soup
1 4 - 5 lb chicken
1 14.5 oz can Diced and Fire roasted tomatoes
2 10 oz cans of Rotel Diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 Tblspn Garlic Powder
1/2 Tblspn Chili Powder
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons Bacon Grease
1 Tspn Poultry seasoning
1/2 Tblspn Cumin
4 Tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped
Put everything together in the crock pot, cook on LOW for 6 - 8 hours. The timing all depends on your chicken. Check if the chicken is cooked throughout (no pink) around 6 hours. If it comes off the bone easily then pull the rest of the chicken out of the crock pot and pull the meat off the bone.
Once you've pulled all the meat off the bones and back in the soup, you can let the meat continue to marinade or you can dish up! :)
I made Maria's Healthified Cheetos the same day I made the soup. They were a perfect cracker substitute! :) I also added sour cream and cheese to the soup - nom nom nom!
Please let me know if you try it out and how you like the recipe! :)
