Dawn's Yummy Chicken Tortilla Soup (Slow Cooker)

Total Time

My best friend, Dawn, is one of the best cooks I know. She keeps most of her recipes "secret" but now and then I beg her to give me one and she does. This is so good I just had to share with you (with her permission, of course!)

This was okay, but not what I was hoping for. There was too much corn for our taste. This was very easy to make and filled my 4 quart slow cooker to the top.

Delicious!! The crockpot makes this very convenient to make. I browned the chicken in oil, seasoning it with chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder. I used these same spices, along with salt and pepper, to season the soup. Also, during the last 15 minutes of cooking, I added 2 TBSP. chopped, fresh cilantro. My family devoured this soup and gave it 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this wonderful, easy recipe...it is definitely a keeper!!

really really good, everything cooks well and retains it seperate texture and does not get mushy. I made this without the cheese and on a low setting! its great even without the cheese!
