In a slow cooker place your chicken breasts, black beans, great northern beans, Rotel, chicken broth and taco seasoning.
Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours.
(I personally like to first cook my chicken in my Instant Pot and shred then switch to the slow cook function. I prefer the texture of the chicken).
Remove the lid and shred the chicken with two forks. Stir in the cream corn and frozen corn and keep the lid off, cooking for another 20 minutes on high (this will allow the soup to thicken up a little bit.)
Right before you’re ready to serve, turn the slow cooker off and add the half and half.
Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with tortilla strips if desired.
