Ingredients and Variations

THE SOUP: Chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, and some enchilada sauce make this soup extra creamy. A little heavy whipping cream can also be added for a thicker base. Canned tomatoes, black beans, and corn give the soup some color and texture, as do the onions. Add some sliced black olives or jalapenos for a real Mexican night meal.

MEAT: Shredded chicken is great in this recipe. But turkey, seasoned ground beef, pork, even shrimp gives the recipe a new delicious twist.

How To Make Chicken Tortilla Soup

  1. Rinse the beans. Add the beans & corn to the crock pot.
  2. Add the chicken and remaining ingredients. (As per recipe below)
  3. Garnish with shredded cheese, tortillas, sour cream, and serve. 

PRO TIP: Don’t drain the Rotel tomatoes. Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or low for 6 to 8 hours.

What To Serve With Chicken Tortilla Soup

For a DIY Mexican Night buffet, place bowls of add-ins near the crock pot and let guests create their own masterpieces. Try bowls of:

  • Crushed up tortilla chips
  • Crumbled cotija cheese
  • Sour cream and salsa
  • Diced avocados
  • Diced potatoes
  • Chopped green chiles
  • Lime wedges

Time Saving Tips & Tricks

Use a rotisserie chicken instead of cooking and shredding chicken. A frozen bag of veggies will do in a pinch if canned veggies aren’t available. Prepare soup in advance and store it in individual-sized airtight containers to grab-and-go for school or workday lunches. Simply heat and eat!
