I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to share my version of Chicken Tortilla Soup!  There are so many delicious variations of this recipe out there, but what sets mine apart is the spices.  I am a spice lover by nature so of course my version of this recipe is going to have a kick!

 

Another thing that sets my recipe apart is how delicious the chicken tastes!  I’m telling you, if you are going to eat Chicken Tortilla Soup, you MUST cook it in a slow cooker.  There is something so delicious about chicken breast cooked low and slow that is unmatched.  I like to make this on Sunday to have on hand for week day lunches!

   

 

To a crock pot/slow cooker, add chopped onion, bell pepper, garlic, jalapeno, chicken breast, fired roasted canned diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, salt, Mexican oregano, chicken broth, water, and tomato sauce.  Cover with lid and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8-10 hours.

 

Remove chicken breast, shred, and add back to crock pot.  The chicken will be so tender, it will practically shred itself!
