Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
There is nothing better than a big steaming bowl of chicken soup on a cold winter day. This recipe for slow cooker chicken tortilla soup is the answer to your desire for chicken soup but with a bit of extra flavor.
I love making this with leftovers from my simple roasted chicken recipe instead of starting with raw chicken breasts. What a great way to make the most of one chicken! Of course, both methods work great, but sometimes that is just another way to work your meal plan and budget.
Can I Add Different Vegetables to My Soup?
While tomatoes, corn, onions, and bell peppers are traditional for this recipe, you can definitely mix in any vegetable you prefer. I’ve been known to chop up a zucchini and add to the mix, or even some beans if I have them on hand. The secret to this recipe is really in the rich flavors of the broth and seasonings. Adjust with the vegetables that you prefer.
Can This Chicken Tortilla Soup be Frozen?
Much like most of my soups, you can easily freeze this recipe for slow cooker chicken tortilla soup. If you are using pre-cooked chicken, you can easily mix the ingredients together in a freezer bag and freeze to add to your slow cooker the morning you want to serve the soup. Alternately, you can make as directed, then allow the soup to cool completely before pouring into freezer soup storage containers.
As with any freezer option, make sure you date and label the container so it is easy to recognize in your freezer. This soup is good for up to 4 months in the freezer.
