Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe – SO EASY!
You guys – I just LOVED this recipe. My family loved it too which is a huge bonus.
It is SO good and such an easy comfort soup to whip up. Most items you likely already have in your pantry. Top with some shredded cheese and tortillas – YUM!
I pre-cooked a ton of chicken that I got a few weeks ago on sale (y'all, making it myself saved me a bundle), but you can use canned chicken, buy a rotisserie chicken, or make it yourself too. Super simple, and if you want to make this Chicken Tortilla Soup a little more “man” approved, add some sour cream and tortilla chips as toppings.
One of the best parts about this recipe is that you can make it VERY quick (30 minutes or less!) and you have the option to do it in a stockpot on the stove or you can throw everything in the slow cooker and let it simmer. The toppings you can add are endless too, so you really can customize this to what your family likes.

How to Make Chicken Tortilla Soup in the Crock Pot
