Spicy Chicken Soup

Kind of like taco soup, but a little creamier, and with chicken.  Serve with cheese and chips.  Ingredients list looks long, but it isn't as complicated as it looks.

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 quarts water
2 cans chicken, or 3 cups shredded chicken
5 cubes chicken bouillon
1 (16 ounce) jar chunky salsa
2 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
2 (16 ounce) cans chili beans, undrained
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream

1. In a large pot over medium heat, cook onion and garlic in olive oil until slightly browned. Add chicken, water, salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley, onion powder and bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes
2. Stir in salsa, diced tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, tomato soup, chili powder, corn, chili beans, and sour cream. Simmer 30 minutes.

FOR THE CROCKPOT:  Throw it all in and cook on high 4-5 hours
