Chicken Tortilla Soup

Pin It

This recipe has become a regular (and favorite) in our household. I love that he loves it because it is super easy! Who doesn't love crock pot recipes where you can just dump ingredients in and walk away??!!

2-3 Chicken Breasts (2 big ones is plenty!)
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can Kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can corn (drained and rinsed)
1 can diced tomatoes (drained and rinsed)
1-2 jalapenos, diced
1 large red onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, diced
2 (14 oz) cans chicken broth (add one if you like more broth for your soup!)
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne powder (optional)
1 tsp ground pepper
2 1/2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
Toppings: (all are optional, get what you want!)
Green onions
Sour cream
Shredded cheddar cheese
Tortilla chips

Now comes the easy part. Mix together (in crock pot) the beans, tomatoes, jalapenos, onion, garlic, corn, and chicken broth. Stir in the seasoning next. Then just toss the chicken breasts in on top. 

Put the lid on, set crock pot to low and walk away for 8 hours. If you need it quicker, it will cook in about 6 hours on high. 

A few minutes before you're going to eat, chop up your cilantro and green onions for the toppings. Also, slice your lime! 

The chicken breasts should be falling apart, go ahead and shred them up completely

  Now, the good part! :) Fill your bowl with soup and top with cheddar cheese, onions, cilantro, and sour cream. Then take a slice of lime and squeeze it over the top. If you want, you may also serve with tortilla chips. A lot of people do, we personally don't in an effort to keep it slightly healthier. Enjoy!
