Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

A few weeks ago we had our good friends over for dinner to celebrate the holiday season.  When I invited them over I knew that I had to find a meal that was easy to prepare on a work night but also that was gluten-free.  This is a new venture for me and I wanted to make sure I did it right and boy I am glad I did.  The recipe that I made was so good that we had it again for dinner last night.

This soup serves between 8-10 adults.  It is a great meal to make on the weekend for lunch left overs.  Also, what a great recipe this has been to get my kids to eat veggies and black beans!  YES mom wins.  I loved that with the addition of gluten-free chips and tortillas we were able to enjoy a great meal with our friends without the worry of making her sick.  Accomplished and I found a great new recipe that we love!

  3. Looks like a real hearty soup my family would enjoy. My kids are not fussy about eating veggies, and I know this Chicken Tortilla soup will be requested frequently. I would probably choose to top this soup with shredded cheese. Yummy!

  4. Your version looks super yummy. I've never made it in a crock pot. I like the idea it would be so much easier to start it and get some errands run.

  5. I love any recipe that is Tex-Mex inspired! I don't eat chicken but this would be fine with just veggies. Also, I'm not a huge fan of crock pots so I would just make this in my Creuset.
