RECIPE: Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

opkikidJanuary 25, 2007

I've been using my slow cooker a lot lately! I made this last night (adapted from and we really loved it!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yields: 8 servings


1 pound boneless chicken breasts (I used frozen chicken, you could also use boneless thighs)

1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes (I used Rotel)

1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce

1 medium onion, chopped

1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers (you don't need this if you use Rotel)

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 bay leaf

1 (10 ounce) package frozen corn

2-3 tablespoons chopped cilantro

7 corn tortillas

vegetable oil


1. Place all ingrediants except cilantro, tortillas and vegetable oil in slow cooker. Cover, and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours or on High setting for 3 to 4 hours. Shred chicken with two forks and stir in cilantro before serving.

2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

3. Lightly brush both sides of tortillas with oil. Cut tortillas into strips, then spread on a baking sheet.

4. Bake in preheated oven until crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes. To serve, sprinkle tortilla strips over soup.

I love soup too! Here is a variation of the one you posted above. I made it just the other day and it was awesome. I will definitely try yours next.


Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

Place in crockpot 2 or 3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves.

Without draining anything, combine in bowl:

2 (15oz) cans black beans
1 (14.5 oz) can tomato sauce
2 (15 oz) cans Mexican stewed tomatoes (or Rotel)
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chilies
1 cup salsa, your preference as to strength

Pour over chicken and cook on low 8 hours.

Just before serving, remove chicken, shred it, and stir it back into the soup.

Stir in:
1 can Niblets corn

Heat just long enough to get corn and chicken hot.

Serve topped with cheese, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips. Or put the chips in the bowl first and ladle soup on top. Either way, YUMMY and so easy!
