Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

I had been on the hunt for a delicious (and easy) chicken tortilla soup, and with the weather we’ve been having lately it was much needed.  I finally found a soup on Pinterest (my insomniac cure) and modified it my way.  Low and behold a delicious, quick and easy soup was born!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 can Herdez salsa casera
  • 1 can green chiles
  • 1 can black beans, drained 
  • 2 ears of corn or 1 can
  • 6-10 cilantro stems
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 Zucchini, chopped (optional)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • Garlic powder (about 1 tsp)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Cumin (about 1 tsp)
  • Chipotle chile pepper (optional)
  • 4 corn tortillas, chopped

Chicken Tortilla Soup

DIRECTIONS:

Drizzle olive oil on bottom of crock pot add Chicken and all ingredients cook on low for 6-8hrs.  Add cilantro & 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice

I added about 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream to mine the last hour because I wanted a richer creamier soup, this is totally optional.

Once ready, shred the chicken, give it a good stir.  Serve this delicious bowl of soup with cheese, tortilla strips, avocado & fresh lime juice.

As always, Buen Provecho!
