SLOW COOKER CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP
This chicken tortilla soup is absolutely delicious, full of flavor and simple to throw together. Loaded with tender chicken, corn, black beans and more. This is a warm, hearty, stick-to-your-bones soup – comfort food at its best.
This awesome recipe was found on Campbell’s Kitchen. Head over to read the rave reviews. My husband and I both give it 5 stars!
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE SLOW COOKER CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP
boneless, skinless chicken breasts, picante sauce, whole kernel corn (frozen or canned, I used Mexicorn), cream of chicken soup, water, black beans, ground cumin, shredded cheddar cheese, fresh cilantro and corn tortillas.
Make your own condensed chicken soup
I share a link below for an easy recipe to make your own homemade condensed cream of chicken soup.
This recipe is easy to adapt too. You can make your own homemade condensed cream of chicken soup (link to recipe below), or use reduced fat soup. You can add more heat, using a hot Picante sauce or tossing in some green chilies or jalapenos. I wanted more corn so I used two 11 ounce cans of Mexicorn (golden whole kernel corn with red and green sweet peppers).
HOW TO MAKE SLOW COOKER CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP
Place chicken pieces in slow cooker, then add Picante sauce, soup, corn, beans, water and cumin. Stir, mixing well. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours (or 2 to 2 1/2 hours on high) until chicken is cooked through and ready. Be sure to adjust cooking time according to how fast/slow your cooker cooks. When ready, add corn tortilla strips, cheddar cheese and cilantro, mix well, cover and cook an additional 15 minutes. Serve with additional cheese and fresh cilantro on top if you like. Enjoy!
I made a few changes in the process, opting to mix everything in a large bowl, then pouring the soup mixture over the chicken and mixing. I also sprayed my slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
A great side for this soup would be a slice of Easy Amish Sour Cream Cornbread – the best cornbread recipe I have ever made!
