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!

2/24/15 – UPDATE: I just made this recipe on ABC 15 in Phoenix! Please see the video HERE!

  1. Place chicken, tomatoes, enchilada sauce, onion, green chiles, and garlic into a 6-Quart Slow Cooker.
  2. Pour in water and chicken broth and season with cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and bay leaf.
  3. Stir in corn and cilantro.
  4. Cover. Cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or on High setting for 3 to 4 hours.
  5. Remove chicken and shred, then place back into the slow cooker. Add the juice of 1/2 of a lime and stir.
  6. 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!)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Brush both sides of small corn tortillas lightly with oil.
  3. Cut tortillas into strips, lay out on a baking sheet. (a pizza cutter works great for cutting)
  4. Bake about 10 – 15 minutes in preheated oven until crisp.
  5. Serve tortilla strips over soup.

Happy Crocking!

I tried this recipe twice, the second time i added some smoked sausage (or chorizo) to it. Both ways it is AMAZING.

I don’t cook the chicken or shred it. Let it cook in the crockpot and it easily breaks apart when stirred. Swanson now makes a tortilla soup flavored broth that I use. Love to crock!

Made this yesterdY and it was delicious! The family loved it! I actually put the chicken in the pot frozen since I was short on time and shredded it later when cooked. Enjoyed it so much. Thanks for sharing!

I also had the chicken cook in the crockpot. After serving in bowls I add shredded Monterrey Jack and slices of avocadoes.

So it is okay to just add the raw chicken with all other ingredients and let it all cook together? I just want to be sure since it is chicken. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be.

This has been a favorite of mine for years. Also a great recipe to “play around” with! I made this today in fact. Yesterday I cooked the chicken in chicken broth in my smaller crock, shredded it, that way it was all ready today to put into the soup. I love veggies so I also added a chopped red bell pepper, chopped green bell pepper, and chopped poblano pepper. In the past I’ve added zucchini as well (forgot it at the store this time). I also add several dashes of my favorite hot sauce. This is definitely a winner be… Read more »

Are you using a 7qt crock for this recipe? I was wondering if I could double the recipe & still get it in my 7qt?

I’ve been looking for a recipe that is like what I think chicken tortilla soup really is…and I think I found it today, thank you! I’m about to put this in my crock, can’t wait to see how I like it! Here’s hoping!

I really like the recipe minus the corn. It changes the flavor entirely and a little less enchilada sauce. I use the knorr’s chicken broth added to the original broth to give it more flavor. A bit of cooked rice could be added instead of the corn.

This is my first recipe ever in the crockpot I’m hopeful… But what is garlic cloves minced… I found minced garlic n regular garlic cloves dry and In a glass jar might sound stupid but I don’t know much about cooking… Is it ok to use chicken legs instead of breasts ? .. Just wondering ,.. Do you Have to boil the chicken first ?

Where is all the fiber coming from? It looks like a pretty high number but there are no beans or anything that looks like it provides that much fiber. I will definitely be trying this soon – my husband loves Chicken Tortilla Soup and I love crock pot recipes

For some reason my soup was not thick at all. I had to use instant potato flakes to get it to the right consistency. The picture looks like the soup is thicker, is that an actual picture from this recipe or does this recipe create a thinner soup?

Marked “excellent” because it was very delicious and my husband and son ate it up. It’s not exactly what I’m looking for in a chicken tortilla soup – I didn’t care for the enchilada sauce flavor in particular. I’m going to try the other chicken tortilla soup recipe on this site and compare. But it was very yummy and a hit.

You might want to update your ingredient list for this recipe because it does not tell you in the list that you need a line but in the cooking directions it tells you to use lime juice at the end.
