How to Make Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup

Just like Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup simply place the ingredients in the crock pot and walk away. Right before serving, shred the chicken and enjoy! So easy.

  1. Cook onion, garlic, and jalapeno (or green chiles) in olive oil until they are softened and add to the Crock Pot.
  2. Place all ingredients in the slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8.
  3. Before serving, shred the cooked chicken and add back to the soup.

Serve with tortilla strips or broken up tortilla chips for extra crunch!

This Crock Pot Tortilla soup recipe is definitely a whole meal in itself, but a few extra ‘mix-ins’ on the side let everyone create their own tasty version!

A traditional chicken tortilla soup is topped with tortilla strips for texture (tortilla chips are a great substitution). Shredded cheddar cheese or Monterey jack cheese will melt perfectly over hot tortilla soup and a dollop of sour cream and some sliced pepperoncinis or sliced black olives and a garnish of chopped cilantro gives it a bright Mexican flavor!

  1. Wow so easy, healthy and yummy! Made for Super Bowl gathering instead of chili. Use skinless boneless chicken thighs and reduced chicken stock to 3 cups. I was short on time so bought pre-made tortilla strips from the grocery store and topped with that, sliced avocado and shredded cheese.

  2. Delicious on a cold winter night. This is perfect for whenever you want a bowl of hearty, yummy, nutritious comfort food! Simple prep and outstanding results!5 stars
