Crock Pot Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup

Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup

I love this Crock Pot Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup. Unlike chili or taco soup, which is really more like a dip you eat with a spoon, chicken tortilla soup is a soup. Sure, tons of toppings can be added to it, which my family LOVES, but if I’ve spent the past week eating pizza and drinking beer, I can feel good about my food choices by going easy on the toppings, and enjoying this Crock Pot Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup in all of its delicious glory.

My kids gobbled up this soup one night, and ignored it the next. This has nothing to do with the flavor of the chicken tortilla soup, but is mostly because they cannot be counted on to have any consistent opinions on food unless it’s candy, chips, or peanut butter and jelly. My husband liked it, too, but wished I would have chosen a cooler day to serve it. Who knew he wouldn’t love soup on a 90 degree day? (I did. I knew, but I wanted soup, so there.)

I used my 6.5-Quart Crock-Pot Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker to make this Crock Pot Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup.

    1. Tortilla strips can be added in or on top of the soup. The photo doesn’t show it because this is my serving, and I was trying to keep it lighter. My kids and husband used tortilla strips, cheese, and avocado on theirs.
