Chicken Tortilla Soup Crock Pot

There really isn’t a time of year where I don’t like using my crock pot and making all things soup. From tomato to this Chicken Tortilla Soup, I love making a simple dinner that my family loves and a meal that can easily feed a crowd.

This Chicken Tortilla Soup Crock Pot is full of flavor, easy to prepare and makes the house smell insanely amazing. Made with chicken, tomatoes, onion and a whole lot of deliciousness, it makes a large batch that feeds my family of seven plus a few more.

I have a few recipes that are my “to-go-tos” when it comes to using my crock pot, and Chicken Tortilla Soup is one of them. What I love about this version of Chicken Tortilla Soup Crock Pot is that it’s completely versatile.

You have your core ingredients, and then all the additional ones to make this soup exactly how you want it. While I personally love it fully loaded (pictures above), my husband hates beans and corn, so to make it his way, I simply don’t add those.

I also love that this Chicken Tortilla Soup Crock Pot is so flavorful with just a few simple ingredients.

Chicken Tortilla Soup Crock Pot has vibrant colors and just makes a stunning meal. It all starts with the deep tone of the broth, and by adding in some fresh vegetables and chicken, you have a great foundation from which to build.

I don’t just love cooking in my crock pot during the cold months – although this is when I use it most often. I love using my slow cooker during all the crazy busy months, which always fall during the fall and winter with sports for all five of our kids, including wrestling, dance, basketball, volleyball and cross country. My afternoons consist of me doing kid carpool duty to all their destinations. Throw in the occasional haircut and dental appointments, and I find I can be in the car no less than 2 hours at a time. So having something comforting, homemade and delicious when we get back from all of their events without taking up more precious time, is pure joy.

Then over the holidays, I love making a big batch of this Chicken Tortilla Soup Crock Pot. You can put it all together or simply make the base of the soup and have all the add-ins on the side, allowing each guest to customize their own.

Either way, this is fantastic to serve to a large group. It’s filling, appealing to the eye and everyone will rave how delicious it is – of course asking for the recipe, which you’re sure to kindly share.

My favorite kitchen items to make this Chicken Tortilla Soup Crock Pot are below, you will want of few of these just for your everyday cooking.

SLOW COOKER: I prefer my slow cooker to have a timer. This is because I always somehow forget about it. So having a timer and a lid that locks are two essential things for me when purchasing a slow cooker.

MEASURING CUPS: Nothing beats a good set of measuring cups that last a long time. I love metal measuring cups because of their durability.

MEASURING SPOONS: I have to have a metal set of measuring spoons on hand. The plastic ones just don’t last long in our house thanks in large part to the garbage disposal.
