Recipe Rewind – Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Since things are a little crazy right now we thought we would do a recipe rewind today of one of our favorites!

Y’all already know that we love Mexican food and when my friend showed me this recipe, I knew that I would instantly be hooked!  Not only is it simple to make, it is flavorful and filling too.

I am always on the lookout for recipes that make my life easier and this one definitely does.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Pace Picante Sauce
  • 2 cans (10 3/4 oz) Campbells Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 soup can water
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 4 corn or flour tortillas cut into strips (6 inch)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro, fresh

Instructions

First you will mix the picante sauce, soup, corn, black beans, water, & cumin together in the crock pot. You will then place the chicken breasts on top, cover the pot and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.

Remove the chicken and shred. Return chicken to the pot along with the tortillas, cheese, and cilantro and stir. Cover and cook for another 15 - 30 minutes. Then it's ready to serve!

Ingredients for Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

You’ll mix together the salsa, black beans, corn, etc.  I then just lay the chicken breasts on top and shred them later, as they are tender.

I love fresh cilantro…

The recipe calls for corn tortillas, but I prefer flour tortillas.  Be sure to cut them into smaller strips.

After most of the ingredients have been in the slow cooker for several hours, you will then add the cilantro, tortilla strips, and you can’t forget about the cheddar cheese!

    Vicki,
    This was the best! I was actually standing eating it right out of the crock pot! I then ate it for three meals straight. Will be making again soon! Thanks for a great recipe.
