The Best Chicken Tortilla Soup

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite Chicken Tortilla Soup recipes that you can cook right in the crock pot.  I love a easy recipe where you can throw all the ingredients in and come back 6 hours later to an amazing meal.


1 (46 ounce) can chicken broth
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
3 cups cooked chicken, shredded (I use rotisserie from the deli)
1 cup diced onion
3 -4 large tomatoes, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon chipotle pepper

If you like it a little extra spicy you can add the following:

2 anaheim chilies, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, diced

Your favorite cheese
Avocado, chopped
2 cups crushed tortilla chips


Throw everything except the garnishes in your crock pot and let it cook on high for 5-6 hours.  Dress with garnishes and  Enjoy!

Note:  I have also made this on the stove. I simply sauted the garlic and onion in olive oil before adding the remaining ingredients and let it simmer for about an hour.

I also have a very similar Chicken Enchilada soup recipe that is just as good!

  1. Any soup I can make in my crockpot is my favorite. I’m going to swap out of the chicken broth with veggie broth and the chicken with vegetarian chicken chunks and give this one a try.

  2. This goes great with my salsa girl! I might make this tonight. I use to be afraid of cumin, but now I use it often-yum. I need to call Rick and tell him to stop and get an avocado!!
