hearty mariachi crockpot chicken soup!

Recipe by

I was looking for something Mexican to make for a pot luck and knew I didn't want to spend a lot of time on preparation. Whenever I think that, I immediately think -Crock Pot! I thought I'd use lots of beans and corn to make it hearty, chicken thighs because they stay so moist when cooked. And I wanted something creamy like a stroganoff so I threw in the sour cream and to keep the flavor high, I used the salsa and taco seasoning. I added the cumin because I just can't imagine Mexican food with it! I named it Mariachi because I hear music when I eat it! Hope you like it!!!
