Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Ready for a delicious soup that makes you feel like you have an assistant helping you? I’ve got you covered!
This scrumptious bowl of chicken tortilla soup is a recipe my friend Sarah from The Magical Slow Cooker created for her first cookbook, Recipes For Busy Moms, The Magical Slow Cooker!
Are you a collector of cookbooks? I like to read them like a great novel paging through each recipe as I look at all the pictures. Much like a good novel, I couldn’t put this book down until I got through each page!
Ingredients for this easy chicken tortilla soup
After flipping though EVERY page I couldn’t decide on just one recipe to try, so I asked Alan for his opinion.
Once I flipped through the soups and stews recipe section, he stopped me on the Chicken Tortilla Soup – “THAT ONE! Definitely, make that first,” he said!
I looked at the ingredient list and noted that I had everything except for the fresh cilantro! In a pinch dried cilantro is ok, but fresh is so much tastier.
- Chicken breasts
- Chicken broth
- Red enchilada sauce
- Cream of chicken soup
- White onion
Soup idea for a crowd!
What a great choice for a family meal!
Not only is this delicious, but it’s simple to put together. Right before going on with your day, add the ingredients to the slow cooker, and by the time you get into comfy sweatpants at the end of the day, dinner is ready!
Likewise, this soup is also perfect for a no-fuss gathering! There is so much to do when you host a party, so while busy prepping a dessert like peanut butter mousse cake, this soup can be simmering.
Toppings to add to tortilla soup
Make sure to add the extras like the chunks of avocado, and the tortilla strips! I followed my method of baking the tortilla chips, and in Sarah’s book, she explains how to fry them. Either way is delicious and adds a tasty flavor to the soup!
Some of our favorite toppings are:
- Cotija Mexican cheese
- Shredded cheese
- Pico de Gallo
- Sliced jalapenos
- Sour Cream of Mexican Crema
