If you like Chicken Tortilla Soup then this slow cooker recipe is a must make! The longer you let the soup simmer the more flavor it has and like many soups, the leftovers are even better!

- Place chicken, tomatoes, enchilada sauce, onion, green chiles, and garlic into a 6-Quart Slow Cooker.
- Pour in water and chicken broth and season with cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and bay leaf.
- Stir in corn and cilantro.

- Remove chicken and shred, then place back into the slow cooker. Add the juice of 1/2 of a lime and stir.
- Serve in bowls topped with optional ingredients like tortilla strips, sour cream and avocado.
For Tortillas: (You can buy tortilla chips or make your own!)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Brush both sides of small corn tortillas lightly with oil.
- Cut tortillas into strips, lay out on a baking sheet. (a pizza cutter works great for cutting)
- Bake about 10 – 15 minutes in preheated oven until crisp.
- Serve tortilla strips over soup.
