Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is a quick and easy meal you’ll enjoy making no matter what the weather is, but you will love it even more this January because in addition to being delicious, it is healthy to boot!

Chicken Tortilla Soup is sort of a base soup people love to top with lots of different options. In our house we keep the soup flavors very kid friendly then we make a topping bar for the rest of the family to customize. Here are some add-in ideas:

  • Spice it up! Adding a sprinkling of cayenne pepper or some chopped or sliced jalapenos will give you a definite punch of flavor.
  • Avocados: Either as slices, diced or guacamole avocados are a great creamy topping for the soup.
  • Dairy: Sour cream of course, but even a touch of heavy cream would be delicious. Don’t forget CHEESE!

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is an easy dump and go meal your whole family will love!

You can of course leave the chicken out and swap the chicken broth for vegetable broth too. This makes a great vegetarian option. I’ve also grilled steak and sliced thinly or chopped it onto the soup so it stays tender.

Adding grains?

  • You can start with a small serving of rice in your bowl and pour the soup over it or you can add the rice into the slow cooker. Rice is a natural pairing for the recipe.
  • Quinoa: Quinoa would be a really great, healthy, addition to this dish. As with the rice adding in with the ingredients or seperately adding cooked quinoa would be a great option.
