Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Eva Amurri's slow cooker chicken tortilla soup recipe

I always find myself cooking tons of soups and stews in my slow cooker this time of year. It’s so easy to dump a bunch of (carefully selected) ingredients into my slow cooker, set it, and then forget about it while I go on with my day.

The result is always a super hearty, yummy, and belly-warming meal!

Soups and stews are also such a great way to extend the grocery dollar. I know I’ve gotten lots of messages to share more of my favorite slow cooker meals as we head into the colder months, so today I thought I’d share one of my favorites that hasn’t made it on HEA yet:

My Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup!

 

This recipe serves 4-6 people, and is totally kid-friendly. You can double the recipe easily make extra to freeze for those extra stressful or busy weeks.

I’m also including a recipe for the crispy tortilla strips that are so easy to make and super delicious. My kids love these with guacamole too!

I hope you enjoy this Chicken Tortilla Soup as much as I do!

    Sounds yummy as I put the ingredients into the Instant Pot. What do you do with the onion – slice, dice, quarter?

    • I actually like the onion a bit bigger so I do a rough chop, a bit bigger than a dice.
