A quick, no-fuss version of chicken tortilla soup! All you do is put everything into the slow cooker, and turn it on. Then garnish with baked corn tortilla strips. What a dish.

This soup was wonderful! I am always looking for a light soup for rainy days and this one was perfect. I also learned a trick for shredding the chicken: after boiling, use your kitchen aid mixer and paddle attachment -- put on low for around 30 seconds and it shreds perfectly. This soup is definitely a make again!

I put my chicken breasts in partially frozen and shredded the chicken the last hour of cooking. Also, I had to use taco sauce instead enchilada -- not sure what the difference is, but it was good!

Amazing and so easy. My picky husband even at it! 1-3-09 Update I have lost count of how many times I have made this. I add frozen chicken to the soup and shred an hour before serving and I usually omit the water.
