Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

Sharing is caring!

SNAP Conference is tomorrow and tonight I’m heading off to the hotel for the next several days to see all my best bloggy friends and get inspired! I need some inspiration–I’ve been getting a little burned out this month. I think one thing that would help is if the weather would warm up, sheesh! This Crockpot chicken tortilla soup recipe will help you to realize just how chilly it still is here.

Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

You really can’t go wrong with crockpot soups. They simmer all day long and your food is savory and tender when it’s time to eat. Plus you’re smelling it all day long (which I guess could be good or bad, haha!) This one is my go-to when I’m feeling sick but don’t have celery for chicken noodle soup. I feel like I usually have these ingredients in my house more often.

    How long do you cook this crockpot chicken soup with already cooked chicken in it?

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      If the chicken is already cooked, just add it the last hour or so it can warm through.

    I HAVE JUST FINISHED MAKING THIS RECIPE, I AM NOT COMPLETELY HAPPY WITH IT. IT WAS REALLY TOO THIN SO I HAD TO ADD A THICKEN TO IT. ALSO I WAS HOPEING FOR A TASTE SIMULAR TO “CHILIS” OTHER THAN THAT ITS OK.
