Ingredient List


  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 1 x 340g jar Old El Paso™ Cooking Sauce for Enchiladas
  • 2 tablespoons Old El Paso ™ Sliced Green Jalapeños, drained and chopped
  • 2 chicken leg portions, skinned

  • 1 x 198g Green Giant™ Sweet Corn, drained

To Serve

  • Old El Paso™ Original Nachips™, roughly broken
  • Cheddar and Red Leicester cheeses, finely grated
  • Freshly chopped coriander


  1. Mix the chicken stock, enchilada sauce and jalapeños in a slow cooker pot. Add the chicken portions and spoon some of the liquid over the chicken.
  2. Cover and cook on low setting for 4-5 hours until the chicken meat is falling off the bone.
  3. Remove the chicken portions from the cooker with a slotted spoon. Shred the chicken meat from the bones (discard the bones). Return the chicken to the pot with the beans and sweetcorn. Cover and cook for a further 30 minutes until the beans and sweetcorn are piping hot.
  4. Serve the soup in warmed shallow bowls topped with broken Nachips™, grated cheese and fresh chopped coriander.

Expert Tips

  • Replace the chicken leg portions with 4 skinless chicken thigh portions for a cheaper dish.
  • Fresh chicken stock has the best flavour but you can replace with 1 chicken stock cube dissolved in 500ml boiling water.
