Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

An easy Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe that’s perfect for busy nights and chilly weather.  

It’s soup season!  Hooray! I love to serve soup at least once a week–maybe more. Not only does my family love it, but I love that I can make it in the morning, and then serve it anytime. 

 Crockpot soups are my favorite, because I can add all the ingredients in the morning, and then just serve it that night when very little additional prep.  It’s definitely a busy mom’s best friend. With sports, dance, and music lessons, we’re on the go a lot in the evenings, and the crockpot is my favorite way to make a yummy dinner for my kids that’s ready whenever we need it.

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

There are just a few ingredients, and most of them are probably already in your pantry. It comes together in just minutes, and after all day in your crockpot, it’s ready to serve to a hungry family!

The soup is so good, but I also LOVE the crispy tortilla strips that get sprinkled on top. I use a pizza cutter to cut corn tortillas into strips, and fry them in a little oil in a cast iron skillet, but I’ve seen them at stores already made if you would rather go that route.  If you’ve never had the homemade version, I think it’s definitely worth a try–it really doesn’t take that long, and they are SO yummy.

From our family to yours…enjoy!!!

  1. This recipe looks delicious! Chicken tortilla soup is one of my favorites, too! One thing I’ve added to my own, that has such great texture is a can of hominy, rinsed and drained.

      1. Hominy is a food produced from dried maize kernels that have been treated with an alkali, in a process called nixtamalization. It’s yummy in soups!
