Hearty and spicy, loaded with you favorite fixings, this easy to make Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is the epitome of comfort food.Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is the most comforting meal I had in a while. If you have to choose one and only one recipe to make in your slow cooker, this is the one to go for! The Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is incredibly easy to make, really, you just add all the ingredients to your slow cooker and let it slowly simmer to pure perfection. This is the type of meal that you can add in the morning to the slow cooker and you are rewarded with a royal dinner at the end of the day. The soup is hearty and spicy, also healthy, until you start piling it with cheese and sour cream. But let’s be honest, all those fixings are the best part of the soup anyway!

Tips and tricks to make the perfect Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe:

  • This soup is spicy! If you prefer less heat, I would recommend cutting down the chili powder in half, and also add only one Chipotle Pepper in Adobo, you can always taste and adjust, but start adding the heat slowly.
  • The classic Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is made with oregano, I personally have family members that are not a big fan of it, we used parsley instead.
  • Use low sodium chicken broth, you don’t want to end up with a salty soup.
  • You can shred the chicken less or more, based on your preference.
  • Don’t forget to rinse the black beans! Otherwise the soup color won’t be as pretty!
  • If you can stir the soup once or twice during the cooking process it would be great.
  • Go crazy with the fixings, the sky is the limit!
  • If you want the soup even more liquid, you can add one more cup of broth.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup loaded with you favorite fixings, is easy to make and packed with flavor!Tools/ingredients that I used to make the Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe:

  • Crockpot – very reasonably prices and definitely a kitchen must have if you are busy.
  • Dried Oregano – adds a nice flavor, always have some in my pantry, used in many Mexican recipes.
  • Dried Parsley – love using these in soups for extra flavor.
  • Chili Powder – the perfect way to add some heat to any dish.
  • Ground Cumin – is used in Mexican, Middle Eastern and Indian dishes, a little goes a long way as it has a beautiful, bold flavor.
  • Garlic Powder – no recipe in my house is made without garlic, unless we are talking about cake. Garlic powder is versatile and it will add a lot of flavor to your main dishes.
  • Onion Powder – great to have on hand to season main dishes and also to make meat rubs.
  • Tomato Sauce – I buy Organic Tomato Sauce in bulk, as I use it in so many recipes, to make pasta sauce, pizza sauce and so many other recipes.
  • Tomato Paste – so much more concentrated than the tomato sauce, I always keep Organic Tomato Paste on hand, it adds a lot of flavor and taste to any tomato dish.
