Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

Updated on January 18, 2012

About the Soup

This is my absolute favorite soup recipie. It can be entirely made in your crockpot. It does take a little while to make but once it's made it is so good you forget about how long it takes.

This soup is great for a party or just if you want something really tasty to eat for a few days. This soup stays good at least 3 days in the fridge. I can make this soup stretch for 3 days between 2 people eating it twice a day. Eventhough the ingredient list is a bit long, because it lasts so long, it is really cost effective.

This soup is awesome! It's pretty cheap to make and it lasts a long time. It's perfect when it's cold outside and you want something comforting and warm. It's pretty easy to make, however it does take a long time. I think it is a soup that is worth the wait.
