Clean Eat Recipe :: Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

The weather hasn't been too frightful here in Georgia, but it's getting colder and windier with each passing day; therefore, that only means one thing - soup weather!  I'm not that big of a chicken noodle fan, so whenever Jim asks me for soup, I whip out my trusty Chicken Tortilla soup recipe. Luckily it's as healthy for you as it is tasty, so no worries if you decide to go back for seconds.




Clean Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup
adapted from fitness.com

Ingredients:
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 cups chopped white or Vidalia onion
1 tsp oregano
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 medium green bell peppers, minced
4 14.5 oz cans of organic diced tomatoes with chiles (Can substitute fresh tomatoes with chiles if preferred)
8 cups organic, low-sodium chicken broth
2 cups frozen corn
2 lbs uncooked boneless skinless chicken breasts



Directions:
1. In a large slow cooker, combine all ingredients, stirring to ensure ingredients are mixed and well distributed.
2. Heat on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
3. Shred chicken and serve warm.

He & She Tip: Add Greek yogurt in place of sour cream or a low-fat, organic cheddar cheese for a little treat.

    1. Kim, We choose not to add tortillas because it adds calories and it's really satisfying without them. If you do, try baking some ezekiel tortillas in your oven to make chips!

  2. Just made this tonight and it's very good! Are there supposed to be tortillas somewhere? I have a large crockpot and it was getting very full with all of the ingredients above, so I ended up only using 4 cups of broth, and only 2 cans of the tomatoes, and it still turned out great! Plus, my husband and I don't like "soupy" soups, we like it a little more chunky, so it worked out well with less liquid anyway! We sprinkled a little shredded cheese and some broken tortilla chips on top for the tortilla part...

    Do you guys ever make your own tortilla chips? I'd love to try making my own, just haven't gotten to that point yet.

    1. Hi Cassie! As mentioned above, it's a personal choice if you have the extra calories for the tortillas. I would suggest baking some cut ezekiel tortillas in your oven!

  10. I chose this as the first recipe in my new crockpot and it turned out great. My boyfriend and I like it spicy so we added fresh jalapenos to ingredients. Turned out great!! Thanks for the idea!

  11. I made this tonight for my family. It was a bit spicy, but we liked it. We will probably do half tomatoes with chilis and half diced tomatoes next time. Overall it was a great recipe to work from and SO EASY! We served it with corn tortillas toasted and/or with corn tortilla cheese quesadillas. It was a great meal for a cold night!
