The weather is getting cooler, which means soup is starting to appear on my menu again. And this Slow Cooker Chicken Posole is a new favorite. I just love the warm chicken and broth with the contrast of the cool, fresh vegetables. It’s the perfect soup for early fall.
I also love that this recipe is great for picky eaters. I just serve all of the toppings and mix-ins on the side and let everyone add what they like (radishes are my personal favorite, but I usually add all of the toppings). This is definitely a soup we’ll be enjoying all season long!
