Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe in a Slow Cooker

6 servings
6 hr 15 min

I love making soup recipes in the slow cooker. It's great for weeknight meals, during the school year, and for when we go on vacation so I don't have to cook.

Spray the slow cooker.

Add the raw chicken and seasoning and the remaining ingredients.

Here is what it looks like after the 6 hours.

Here is the finished dish.

To make this a freezer meal, I added all the raw ingredients into a baggie and froze it; when we wanted to eat it, we defrosted the bag in a large bowl the night before and then added it to the larger slow cooker. It was finished between 6-7 hours.

I doubled this recipe and added more chicken, this is what it looked like.

This is the video of the smaller portion-sized version of this recipe.
