Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. I MAY EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES.

I use my slow cooker all year round. Making a meal in a slow cooker kind of seems like a fall/winter thing to do but it’s also handy in the summer when it’s too hot to turn on the oven, or when I want a “dump it and forget it” kind of meal. My slow cooker chicken tortilla soup is one of those meals that everyone in my family eats without complaining, so it shows up in the meal rotation often. I might be biased, but I think you definitely want to add this one to your meal plan.

What I really love about this dish (besides the fact that it tastes amazing) is that you can customize the level of hot or mild to suit your family’s taste buds. Since this recipe uses canned enchilada sauce, you have some options on how much you want to kick up the heat. You can also add another can of green chilies if you really want to add some zip to this dish.

I buy all of my chicken from Zaycon Fresh. I know that sounds like a super futuristic name but it’s really just how I save money on meats fresh from the farm and eliminate the middle man. Plus, I stock up my freezer a few times a year and it makes meal planning easier.

I hope you like this slow cooker chicken tortilla soup as much as I do. We like to use sour cream, avocado as garnish but you can also add salsa or chopped veggies. This is a great recipe for busy weekday evenings or on the weekend when you don’t have time to spend in the kitchen.

On the weekends, we cook this for 4 hours on high and let everyone serve themselves throughout the afternoon. This is a great dish to have on hand if you’ve got weekend guests and you’re not planning formal, structured meals.

Isn’t this crock pot cover fun? Do you put yours away or leave it set out on the counter all the time?
