Lately I have been in search for the best crock pot recipes… with four soccer games a week I sort of have to! Anyway, I love love love chicken tortilla soup. Maybe it stems from my love of ALL Mexican food, but either way I was on the hunt for the best tortilla soup recipe! I have tried several different varieties and finally found a recipe I LOVE.
I cooked this recipe three times changing it just a bit each time until I was satisfied. The original recipe is from here, but I changed it a bit to what it is now.
Doesn’t it look awesome! So good with a little part skim shredded cheddar and sour cream. I try to do low fat sour cream, but I just can’t. I love it too much.
Chicken Tortilla Soup
32oz box chicken broth
2 handfuls of chopped cilantro
one squeezed lime
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can green chilis
1 large yellow onion
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed.
2-3 Tb tomato paste
1 can sliced olives
2 pacs of chicken taco seasoning
***Throw the chicken in the crockpot (you can use frozen chicken if you want). Sprinkle taco seasoning packets over the chicken and let cook in the crock pot on high. After 2-3 hrs the chicken will shred easily with a fork without much effort. Add all the rest of the ingredients and cook for another 2-3 hrs in the crockpot on high (or low if you want it to be done later). Serve with cheddar cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips if desired.
