Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

This Thanksgiving I have a week off from rotations and I have used some of that time to try out some new recipes. One of these is crockpot chicken tortilla soup.  I made it last Saturday, but it serves 8, so 6 days later I’m still eating it! Thankfully it is tasty, spicy, and can be served in a variety of ways– shredded cheese sprinkled on top, served with corn tortilla chips, it’s all good!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound frozen chicken (shred near end of cooking time)
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes (I chose one with onions & green peppers in it as well)
  • 1 (10 oz) can enchilada sauce (red or green, I went with red)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 (4 oz) can chopped green chile peppers
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 (14.5 oz) cans chicken broth (I used 1 can chicken broth, 1 can vegetable broth, and 1 can water, because that’s what I had)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (10 oz) package frozen corn
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) black beans, rinsed
  • Sprinkle of cilantro (I had some dried cilantro I wanted to use up)

Cook on low for 6-8 hrs, or on high for 3-4 hours. Make sure to shred the chicken towards the end of the cooking and then add back in. Makes about 8 2-cup servings.

Add everything in, let cook 4 hrs on high

Finished product, voila!

    I’m assuming that one could substitute leftover Thanksgiving turkey for the chicken? Quite seasonally appropriate!
