Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Today’s recipe is a killer one, Chicken Tortilla Soup in the Crock Pot. My freezer-crockpot meal extravaganza continues. This time, we’re diving mouth first into a vat of Chicken Tortilla Soup. Yes and yes. This recipe is awfully tasty and will feed a crowd! Very hearty, very healthy and is particularly divine with lots of cheese, sour cream, cilantro, crushed tortilla chips and anything else you want to throw up on top. The toppings are where it’s at.

Accouterments. They make my world go round, lemmetellyou.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup Ingredients

Base – Tomato Sauce and Chicken Stock, simple but effective. There is also chicken and corn tortillas that would be considered a part of the base of a recipe.

Seasonings – Salt, Pepper, Cumin, Smoked Paprika, and Oregano. These create a lot of depth to the soup. Also, because onions and garlic add even more flavor, I’m adding them in the seasonings section.

Vegetables and Legumes – Okay here’s a bunch more: carrots, zucchini, sweet corn, black beans, cannellini beans, and tomato sauce. They all add amazingness to the recipe.
