Slow cooker chicken tortilla soup

When it comes to cooking, I’ll admit that I’m a little lazy, especially on weekends.  By the time I get done with grocery shopping and laundry and all the other stuff I have to get done over the weekend, I just don’t want to cook.  But I still want to eat well.  So this was the perfect solution for me today….not to mention that the temperature is in the 30s and I am more of a warm weather kind of girl :).  An easy slow cooker soup was the ideal choice for the day and I already had all of the ingredients on hand.  I just threw it all in the slow cooker, headed out to the gym and got my grocery shopping done.  By the time I got back, the house was smelling absolutely delicious and the whole family was looking forward to dinner.  Although I made it with chicken, you can easily just leave out the chicken and it will still be delicious.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup


  • 1 lb bonesless all natural chicken breasts
  • 5 cups organic chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Put everything in the crockpot and cook on low 6-8 hours.  Garnish with sliced avocado, cheese, and a scoop of Greek yogurt.  (I really feel like I should write some additional directions but that’s really all there is to it!)

Total cost for this meal was about $10 and fed 4 very generous servings plus plenty of leftovers for my lunch tomorrow.  Leaving the chicken out would cut the cost in half, at least.  Eating real food is delicious and super easy!
