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!

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup has Mexican flavors with chicken, onion, tomato and diced green chilies. Life-in-the-Lofthouse.comMy 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. 😉

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup has Mexican flavors with chicken, onion, tomato and diced green chilies. Life-in-the-Lofthouse.comThe recipe she found was not a slow cooker version. It’s made on the stove top. I took the liberty of trying it in my crock pot and the rest is history. 😉

    This soup was absolutely delicious. My family ate the whole pot over a weekend. Since I have 1 picky eater in the family we omitted the black beans, the crushed tomatoes and onions. We added 1 can of cream of chicken soup, used onion powder, and added a cup of cooked uncle ben’s jasmine rice. It was soooo delicious. We love all of your recipes. It has made my daughter – married 2 years now a great cook. Thank you sooo much!

    I forgot to mention we added about 2 tablespoons of flour and mixed it in with the broth to thicken it a little
