Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is a staple recipe you need in your arsenal. A warm and comforting soup with Mexican-inspired flavors. Slight smokiness from the fire roasted tomatoes, corn, and spices. And just the right amount of kick from the cayenne pepper and diced tomatoes with green chiles. Did I mention that this soup is filling too? It’s chock full of fiber and protein from the chicken, corn, beans, and bell pepper. And of course, all that COLOR.
Once you start making soup in your slow cooker, it’s so hard to go back to making on the stove top. Especially when it’s a simple recipe like this – just dump in your ingredients, set and forget it. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. Once done, all you have to do is shred up your chicken, mix in the lime juice and cilantro, and serve.
Once you’re ready to dive in, don’t forget to add some toppings! I love diced avocado or a big dollop of sour cream for some creaminess and crushed tortilla chips for extra crunch. Go crazy!
It’s perfect to either dump before going to work in the morning and coming home to a hot meal. Or, I like to have it working on Sunday when I’m meal prepping for the week.
