THE BEST Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe!
Crock-pot OR Stock-pot…THIS will make your life easy & delicious!
Makes 6-8 servings
- 1 (46 ounce) can low sodium chicken broth
- 1 (15 ounce) can organic tomato sauce, or enchilada sauce (I prefer the enchilada)
- 1 (15 ounce) can organic diced tomatoes
- 4 cups cooked chicken, shredded (I used rotisserie from the Whole Foods deli)
- 1-3 anahiem chili’s, diced (depending on heat preferences)
- 1-2 small jalapeno peppers, seeded & diced
- 1 cup diced yellow onion
- 4-6 large fresh tomatoes, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 Tbsp minced fresh cilantro
- 1 Tbsp chili powder
- 3 tsp cumin powder
- 2 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 tsp Chipotle Tabasco sauce
- avocado, diced
- green onion, chopped
- fresh cherry tomatoes, halved
- cilantro leaves
- lime wedges
- crushed non-gmo blue tortilla chips
Place everything except the garnishes in the crock pot and cook on high for 5-6 hours.
Ladle into serving bowls, let everyone garnish as they choose, and add a good squeeze of lime!
If you are not using a crock pot, sauté the garlic and onion in 1 Tbsp olive oil in hot stock pot, before adding the remaining ingredients.
Simmer on medium-ish heat for at least an hour or two so that the flavors combine.
This soup is even better the next day!
Consider doubling to make your week easier!
