I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving holiday was wonderful. Ours was so fun (except that I was terribly sick during it) and it was wonderful to host our first Thanksgiving.
I loved cooking the turkey for the first time (crazy) and all the different side dishes we had. It was fantastic!
If you are sick of turkey sandwiches for lunch, try this easy slow cooker chicken tortilla soup recipe. It tastes amazing – so flavorful and delicious – and can be thrown together in about 15 minutes.
It’s that easy. You can cook it on low for 6-8 hours and have lunch or dinner on the table easily.
Do you ever wonder what life would be like without all the gadgets we now have in the kitchen? I can’t imagine life without my slow cooker.
I use it at least weekly and I just love it. I can’t even fathom cooking all the time without it.
How difficult that would have been. Our grandmothers are saints if they were able to cook dinner every night without a slow cooker. It’s amazing to hear their stories!
If you are interested in additional slow cooker recipes, I highly suggest the slow cooker Asian chicken sliders or these slow cooker black eyed peas.
I have to admit that as much as I loved our Thanksgiving meal, I am getting sick of the foods. I absolutely loved all of the food that we had, but it’s getting old. But I don’t want to be in the kitchen for hours.
I did that cooking the turkey on Thanksgiving and I am happy to not be in the kitchen that long for a long time. This slow cooker chicken tortilla soup recipe is so easy to make and tastes fantastic.
It’s is a simple chicken tortilla soup but it packs a punch too. Try it and enjoy it.

thanks 🙂 I think maybe brush them with a little olive oil or salt free butter and then we can add a sprinkle of seasoning when baking them. We have to get creative to get more flavor when you can’t have salt. Little cayenne to boost it, for me..but my other half doesn’t like hot/spicy, so maybe some pepper and/or mrs dash garlic seasoning. I know he’s super excited about this as its made low sodium mostly already 🙂
Oh that is a great idea. I think that would be awesome with this soup. You will have to let me know how it is to make your own strips.
thanks. I think we’ll use corn tortillas and cut them and bake them ourselves. We are on a sodium restricted diet and thankfully corn tortillas are so much more manageable then flour ones
I have looked everywhere for tortilla strips at the store and I can’t find them. But you are more than happy to add them to this soup. I find that the flavor is the same with or without the strips (obviously no crunch if they aren’t in the recipe). If you add strips, the SmartPoints value will be different.
Where is the tortilla?
