Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is a recipe I’ve been making forever. It’s healthy, delicious and so easy to make. It’s another slow cooker recipe win!

Chicken Tortilla SoupMy Mom first made this Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup for Christmas Eve about eighteen years ago. I was living in Bullhead City, AZ at the time. Back then I always looked forward to come up to St. George, visit my family, and get to eat my Mom’s home cooking. 

I fell in-love at first bite when Mom first made us this Chicken Tortilla Soup. We all loved it so much I’ve been making it ever since. She found the recipe from a Light Cookbook (I’m sorry I would acknowledge which one but I don’t remember). It is a light recipe, until after you start adding all the delicious toppings. Cheese, sour cream and of course tortilla strips. ha! I believe those are a must when enjoying this delicious soup. 😉
