This is a repost of one of my favorite crockpot soup recipes. Hope you enjoy the new photos. It is time to find some comfort and warmth in a soup. I love my crockpot 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 crockpot 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.
Can I make this slow cooker Tortilla Soup Ahead of Time?
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.
WHAT TIME OF CHICKEN SHOULD I USED FOR TORTILLA SOUP?
The Chicken needs to be cooked for this crockpot soup recipe 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.
