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. 

Slow Cooker Chicken Posole

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 and avocado are my personal favorites, but I usually add all of the toppings.

This is definitely a soup we’ll be enjoying all season long!
