Tortilla Soup Crock Pot Recipe

Tortilla Soup Crock Pot Recipe
This is a repost of one of my favorite crock pot soup recipes. Hope you enjoy the new photos. It is time to find some comfort and warmth in soup. I love my crock pot when it comes to making soups and chilies as you can just dump and not think about it!
 For a recent luncheon I was having, casual the way I like it, I decided to try Tortilla Soup and Ham biscuits.   I knew I was going to have a hectic morning so I threw everything into the crock pot in the evening and just plugged it in when I woke up. Ironically my friends arrived before me, a little email slip on my part!! Needless to say the soup was there waiting for them!! ( I had also put all the condiments in a dish in the fridge so it was easily accessible)

I adapted the recipe for Tortilla Soup from A Year of Slow Cooking.   The one thing I did not like about this recipe is that the chicken had to be cooked. The night before when I had the grill on for dinner I just grilled up some chicken breasts along with what we were having. I guess this saved me time from having to pull apart the chicken before the guests arrived which would have been disastrous considering my email mishap:)  It is also a great recipe to use frozen cooked chicken.

One of my favorite food planning tips is if you are making chicken for a recipe, put a few extra breasts in the oven with just salt and pepper. When it is finished cooking, chop it or shred and place it in a freezer bag. You will have some great chicken waiting for you in the freezer.
