All About Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Ingredients You’ll Need
This chicken tortilla soup comes topped with crispy spicy tortilla strips. And don’t skip the toppings, obviously 😀 Here’s what you need:
For the Soup
- Crushed tomatoes
- Canned black beans
- Canned pinto beans
- Sweet corn
- Green chiles
- Bell peppers
- Yellow onion
- Chili powder
- Ground cumin
- Garlic powder
- Coarse salt
- Hot sauce
- Chicken broth
- Chicken breasts
- Greek yogurt
- Lime juice
Spicy Tortilla Strips
- Fresh cilantro
- Chopped avocado
- Sour cream
- Shredded cheese
- Sliced jalapeños
a few tips
Make it spicier: our recipe only calls for 2 tablespoons of hot sauce, but if you like things hot hot hot, feel free to up the hot sauce to 3 tablespoons (or more!).
Make it creamier: the 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt that this recipe calls for will give you a slightly creamy consistency. Feel free to increase this to 1/2 cup or use sour cream for an even creamier soup.
Choose your cut of chicken: if for whatever reason you don’t want to use chicken breasts, boneless thighs will also work. Just be mindful it may change the cook time. Make sure to cook the chicken to an internal temperature of 165ºF.

Charity of the Month
Each month we select a different charity to support. This month we’re supporting the NAACP who works to disrupt inequality, dismantle racism, and accelerate change in key areas including criminal justice, health care, education, climate, and the economy.
NAACP’s mission is to ensure the political, educational, equality of minority group citizens of States and eliminate race prejudice. The NAACP works to remove all barriers of racial discrimination through democratic processes.
We’ll be doubling the match from our giveaway winners to donate $400 to the NAACP.
