Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

by elyn_ryn

This soup is so easy to make because the slow cooker will do all the work for you. It is even easier than using a rotisserie chicken. Are you wondering how that could be?

All the soup ingredients are placed in the slow cooker. Use boneless and skinless chicken breasts and trim off anything undesirable on the chicken before placing it in the slow cooker. I usually use kitchen shears for this because I don’t always want to clean up a cutting board.

Cook for the time listed in the recipe. Your soup is ready at this point, but there is one more thing to do to finish it.

Remove the chicken from the soup and place it on a dinner-sized plate. Use two forks to shred the chicken. Because you trimmed it before cooking it, the shredding can be done quickly. It is tender and easily breaks apart. Put it back into the soup and stir and you are ready to enjoy a warm, hearty meal!
