Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

I'm making this one for our family tomorrow and will update this picture ~ the soup is delicious, although that picture from my iPhone last summer is a little rough! ūüôā

This has got to be my favorite slow cooker soup recipe ever.  While I love some taco soup and some potato soup also (really, they're so good too!), this is the one that I always come back to on a busy night when I just need something simple to dump in Mrs. Potts.


If you don't have a slow cooker (you really need to get one . . .), but you could also easily cook this one on the stovetop for a few hours instead.  I promise, you'll love it, and enjoy every yummy bite!

  1. Tortilla soup is one of my faves, too! I like it because its flexible… I often throw in kidney beans or pinto beans along with the black beans, some bell pepper (green, red, or yellow, or all three) for color & extra flavor. Ranch-style beans are also great in this. I’ve never tried it with the cream of chicken soups, though, so I’ll have to try that soon! This freezes GREAT so I usually make a big pot of it, set some aside for leftovers, then freeze the rest for a quick and easy meal down the road. Thanks for sharing!
