This slow cooker authentic tortilla soup is incredibly easy to make, and incredibly worth it! I love making this easy soup year round, but especially on cold wintery days. It’s a perfect addition to any dinner table!
Slow Cooker Authentic Tortilla Soup this is our family’s favorite recipe for tortilla soup. It’s easy, delicious and a crowd pleaser. What is great about this soup is that you can adapt it to how you like. Love corn? I do, add it in (we do this most of the time) but my hubby prefers not. Like beans? Have then available on the side so people can choose whether to add them in or not. Have an assortment of toppings like purple onion, avocado, cilantro, limes, sour cream and of course tortilla chips! Chips are a must.
My sister Nicole has an amazing tortilla soup but I wanted to try something without beans because my hubby hates beans. So I made this recipe and it has become an instant hit with my kids, our family, and friends. My family requests this every Christmas Eve at our big family dinner, even my sister Nicole loves it. And my sister Tami makes this recipe all the time. I love this Slow Cooker Authentic Tortilla Soup and I can’t wait for it to become a staple in your home as well.
It’s so easy just throw everything in the slow cooker and let it do its thing. What makes this recipe top notch is that it freezes so well, so if you have leftovers? Which you probably won’t, stick in the freezer and enjoy another time or take as a meal to a friend. Enjoy! XOXO San

How do you make Slow Cooker Authentic Tortilla Soup?
In a slow cooker add all of the ingredients. Cover, and cook on Low setting for 6 to 8 hours or on High setting for 3 to 4 hours. Shred the chicken right before you serve.
NOTE: If adding the corn, add it the last hour so it doesn’t get too mushy or consume the soup with its flavor.
My favorite kitchen tools used to make this Slow Cooker Authentic Tortilla Soup are below:

MEASURING SPOONS: I have to have a metal set of measuring spoons on hand. The plastic ones just don’t last long in our house thanks in large part to the garbage disposal.
SLOW COOKER: I prefer my slow cooker to have a timer. This is because I always somehow forget about it. So having a timer and a lid that locks are two essential things for me when purchasing a slow cooker.
