Tortilla Soup

Let’s start by putting two boneless skinless chicken breast in your crock-pot.

Next add one chopped onion…

1 tablespoon of garlic…

1 can of drained black beans…

1 can of diced tomatoes…

1 tablespoon of tomato paste…

1 tsp of chili powder…

1/2 teaspoon of cumin…

And 1 cup of frozen corn.


I lied. We’re almost done.

Now add 3 cups of chicken broth…

And season this soup up with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Ok, now you’re done!

Put your cracked lid on, set your crock-pot to low…

And in six short hours you’ll have yourself a beautiful pot of soup!

Grab a few forks to shred your chicken breast and taste it to make sure your soup is seasoned enough.

Time for the fun part, the toppings!

Slice a few flour tortillas…

And fry them quickly in a pan of hot vegetable oil.

How do you know when your oil is hot enough to fry stuff? Flick a few drops of water in the oil, when the water sizzles your oil is ready!

A perfect topper for our soup.

They also taste great sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar!

Sour cream, shredded cheddar, an avocado, a dash hot sauce, your fried tortilla strips…

The list goes on and on! Make this soup your own!

    Since when did Crock Pots come with plastic lids? Is nothing sacred? I guess now I’ll really try to never break mine because a broken Crock Pot lid is not what it’s cracked up to be.
    I’m going to try a vegan version of this, thanks for the great idea.

    Mmmmmm, tortilla soup is great! I don’t care much for beans (so I typically leave them out) but other than that… delicious!
