Low Carb Slow Cooker Chicken Fajita Soup

I found this recipe at http://www.aboutamom.com.  The carb count is not available but based on the ingredients, it is very low.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 32 oz. chicken stock
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 medium yellow pepper, diced
  • 1 medium red pepper, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 oz. mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 (8 oz.) package McCormick Taco with Chipotle & Garlic Skillet Sauce (I could not locate this sauce so I used 6 oz. tomato paste, paprika and chipotle chili powder)
  • 1 tbs. season salt
  • 2 tbs. fresh cilantro, chopped

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Except for the fresh cilantro, add all ingredients to the slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
  2. Using two forks, shred the chicken breasts.  Gently stir in fresh cilantro, cover, and continue cooking for an additional hour.

This recipe makes a lot of soup, about 14 cups.  I topped off with a little sour cream.
