Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup

  • Cooking Time:

    7-8 hours on Low
  • Servings:



2 chicken breasts, halves, boneless, skinless and cubed
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 tomatoes, medium, fresh, peeled, chopped
4 c. chicken broth
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 green chile, mild, seeded and chopped
2 T. vegetable oil
4 corn tortillas, halved and cut into 1/4 inch strips
cheese, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, or cheese of your choice

Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup is one of my family favorites, and although I have other recipes on my website, just had to add this one too… so GOOD!

  1. In a 5-6 quart slow cooker, combine chicken breasts, onion, garlic, tomatoes, broth, salt, pepper and green chile.
  2. Cover. Cook on Low for 7-8 hours.
  3. Remove Chicken Breasts and shred with two forks or shredding claws and transfer back to slow cooker and stir in soup. Cover to keep it hot!
  4. In large skillet, heat oil and add tortilla strips. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until crisp; drain on paper towels, or use pre-made from the grocery store.
  5. Place a 1 or 2 tablespoons of shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or cheese of your choice) in each serving bowl, if desired.
  6. Ladle tortilla soup into bowls and top with tortilla strips.

Optional: Dust with chopped cilantro and/or parsley.

Happy Crocking!

Looks delicious!!! How do you adjust recipes for a 7qrt slow cooker, or do you need to adjust at all? Thanks Jen.

I know the flavored must really cook well together for 7-8 hours, but if I’m short on time can I cook it on high for less time? If so, how long on high do you suggest?
