Ingredients

How to make it

  • Begin with the chicken. Rinse breasts, pat dry and place in bottom of Crock Pot. Pour salsa verde over the top of it and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Once cooked, shred with a fork (or two if it's easier). Clean out Crock Pot for future use.**
  • Heat olive oil in saute pan over medium heat. Add onion & cook until softened. Then add garlic & cook for another minute or two, stirring often.
  • Place cooked chicken, onions, and garlic in the bottom of Crock Pot. Then add chicken stock, tomatoes (with liquid), corn, beans, lime juice, chillies. Finally season with cumin, chili powder, oregano, and salt. (Go lightly on the chili if you don't care for very spicy and also note that flavors get stronger over time in the Crock.) Cook on high 6-8 hours or on low for 10-12 hours.
  • When ready to serve, heat 2 tsp vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add half the tortilla strips, stirring often until crisp. Drain on paper towel. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Repeat with remaining 1/2 tsp oil & tortilla strips. Place a small layer of tortilla strips , cilantro, and a bit of shredded cheese in the bottom of each bowl. Ladle soup into bowl & top with desired garnish.
  • ¬°buen provecho!
  • **Note: If you do not want to slow cook the chicken, or do not have the time there are two other options. One would be to use a store-bought rotisserie chicken. Or you may season the chicken breasts with taco seasoning (I suggest Best Ever Taco Seasoning Mix), then cook in a saute pan with a small amount of vegetable/olive oil or grill. Once done, cut into bite sized cubes.

    I have the Tortilla Soup In A Crock Pot in the crockpot. I also altered the cooking method. I chose to saute the onion and garlic then add cutup chicken to the same pan to brown. Reduce the heat, pour over the salsa verde cover and let simmer for about 30 minutes. Saved quite a bit of time and the chicken shredded beautifully. I added a picture of the cooking deviation. The seasoning and soup smells great although it is still cooking I'm confident it will be a success.

    Made this today and it was fantastic. It made a ton, which around here, is the way to go! :) I used all your recommended ingredients but also added some bell and jalapeno peppers and extra spices, per taste. I used the slow cooker, which was why I chose it in the first place... well, and cus it was yours. ;) But, all I did was cube my chicken and toss it(raw) in with everything else and turned it on. Didn't saute the onions first or anything, and it turned out just perfect! Garnished with avocado(YUM!), shredded pepper jack and colby, sour cream, cilantro and the tortilla strips. The broth of this was so flavorful and will be great during cold season, too. Thank you so much for the recipe! :)

    Looks great, DT... I'll prolly do the grilled chicken route and use Share Bear's Latin Seasoning Mix, but other than those lil differences, this is gonna be by the recipe, I think! :) Thanks for adding it.
