Feeding a crowd? Keep it easy – and flavorful – with our Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe.
Don’t stress about the food the next time you have guests for dinner. This savory Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe almost makes itself and is loaded with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.
Any recipe that is loaded with Mexican flavors – think chili powder, cumin, oregano and crushed red pepper – is always a crowd-pleaser around here. This Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup earns double points because it has killer flavor AND is super simple to make. Literally. Throw the laundry list of ingredients in the slow cooker and let the machine work its magic. Your reward is a hearty soup that feeds an army with hardly any work on your part.
I love to serve this soup buffet-style with an array of toppings to suit every tasty bud. Lots of fresh cilantro, sour cream, creamy avocado and salty tortilla strips are a must, but shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes and jalapeno slices are tasty add-ins, too.
Feel free to dial the heat up or down in this Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup by adding more or less jalapeno peppers and crushed red pepper, but take my advice and don’t skip the fresh lime juice. It instantly brightens the flavor of the soup and adds an irresistibly tasty tang to every bite.
