Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Sharing is caring!


Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

One of my favorite recipes to make for our family as well as for others when I bring them a meal is this Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup. This soup is so incredibly easy, yet it tastes delicious and most people usually love it. I just love the fact that it involves little to no prep work and the slow cooker does all the work for you!

This recipe also makes a big bowl of soup so that you can have leftovers or you can have enough to bring a family a meal while also still giving your own family a nice meal with no extra work. It also freezes well, if you’d like to eat a meal now & then freeze the rest in smaller portions to take to work or to have at a later date.

This Chicken Tortilla soup has been passed around many times at our MOPS group since it’s so popular, all thanks to my friend Michele who originally shared this yummy recipe. :)

Ingredients:

Ingredients for Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

  •  3 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cans black beans, undrained
  • 2 cans Mexican stewed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 4 oz can diced green chiles
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup salsa (any kind, just pick your favorite as this will give your soup the main flavoring)
  • Tortilla Chips, as desired
  • Shredded Cheese, as desired
  • Sour Cream, as desired

Directions:

This recipe is so simple – you literally dump all the ingredients in & stir everything together. Cook it on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours. Stir it every hour or so (if you’re home).

Shredding Chicken for Chicken Tortilla Soup

About 30 minutes before it’s ready to serve, take the chicken out & shred it with a fork. Then put it back in the crockpot & stir everything together once again.

Once the soup is cooked & you’re ready to eat, we serve it with tortilla chips, sour cream & shredded cheese for toppings. I’ve had friends who put the tortilla chips at the bottom of the bowl and then dump the soup over it & add the toppings on top. We like to put the tortilla chips around the side, so they still stay fairly crunchy & then put our favorite toppings on top. But, either way works great – just whatever you prefer!

If you don’t have a slow cooker yet, here are two that we recommend:

7 Quart Crockpot Slow Cooker

Crockpot 7 Quart Stainless Steel Manual Slow Cooker –  this is a good basic crockpot which is a nice, big size for big meals like this Chicken Tortilla soup. This is similar to the Crock-pot that I have and it works well for our family of 4.

Crockpot Programmable Slow Cooker

Crockpot 6 Quart Programmable Cook & Carry Slow Cooker – This is a crockpot that I’ve been wanting as it is programmable, which means it’s perfect if you work away from the home or just need something to cook all day while you’re gone. But it is also a cook & carry slow cooker, which means that it is easy to bring to gatherings with the clamps on the lid, so that it won’t make a mess in your car
