You can take slow cooker chicken tortilla soup as an example of a soup that seems more complicated than it is for home cooks. The ingredients list is a bit longer than some soups, but not harder.
However, each ingredient simmers with the others, resulting in a fantastic bowl of soup that the whole family will enjoy. There should be a rule that you can only make soup in a crockpot.
Crockpots make soups so much better. All ingredients are combined and simmered in a single pot, and they don’t get touched. That is the best thing to happen to any soup.
This delicious slow cooker chicken tortilla soup is not only an easy crockpot dinner recipe, but it is also a leisurely crockpot lunch and snack recipe. The entire idea of a crockpot is to set it and forget it.
You can throw all of the ingredients into it, turn it on, and then come back hours later to a meal. There aren’t many recipes that fit into that idea.
Could you imagine trying to make a NY strip steak by just throwing it into a pan and letting it sit there until you’re ready to come back and eat it?
You’d return to either a burnt-down kitchen or a piece of charcoal in your pan. Soups are an entirely different story. More specifically, slow cooker chicken tortilla soup.
This recipe requires you to saute a few veggies, but other than that, set it and forget it. Saute what is needed, toss it in the slow cooker and other ingredients, and then go about your day.
The best part is that you can store the leftovers for later, and they will last for quite a while.
Dairy Free Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
You may get a little scared when you scroll down and see the recipe card. The ingredients list is a bit longer than most of our recipes. However, the ingredients are small and easy to find.
Head to the nearest farmer’s market and find the freshest garlic, onions, bell peppers, cilantro, and jalapenos. Then, use your favorite skinless, boneless chicken breasts, chicken stalk, and tri-color tortilla strips.
The canned ingredients, like fire-roasted tomatoes, make the recipe easier. Unless you’re a confident chef, stick with the canned options, which will be easier and quicker.
But go the extra mile by the fire roasting your tomatoes and dicing your tomatoes and green chilis.
