Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup is one of my favorites.  I know I say that a lot, but it is!  This soup did not disappoint either.  My husband and I enjoyed the leftovers from this soup for lunch most of the week.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yield: 8


  • 2 Large Chicken Breast, Uncooked
  • 1 14oz Can of Chicken Broth
  • 2 Cups of Water
  • 1 14.5 oz Can of Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies
  • 1 Cup Brown Rice
  • 2 Cups Frozen Corn
  • 1 Tsp Cumin
  • 1 Tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 Garlic Clove


  1. Add all ingredients to slow cooker except the rice, placing the chicken on top. This will cook on low for 4 hours, then remove chicken, let cool, and shred. Place shredded chicken back into the crock pot and continue cooking for 2 more hours. The chicken will be so tender it will simply fall apart making shredding very easy. Add the rice within the last 30 minutes of cook time.
  2. I sprayed corn tortilla’s with spray butter and then cut them into long slices. I baked these in the oven for 10 minutes at 375*.
