Sometimes I think my relationship with my kids is the most complicated and intense relationship(s) I’ve ever had.

Never have I experienced a relationship in which I can want to strangle someone one minute and then the next minute feel so much deep and unending love for them that I am brought to tears.  And then have it happen 18 more times in one afternoon.

Lately I’ve been thinking mainly about my deep and unending love for them.  If I didn’t know better, I’d think I was pregnant (I’m NOT), because I’m so emotional.  My kids have just been so utterly adorable and sweet and funny and smart.  I’ve had hilarious conversations with Gavin that I didn’t really think he was old enough/smart enough to have yet.  I’ve noticed how SUPER funny Quinn is able to be even when she isn’t trying.  And I’ve been given this amazing sense of deep joy with Piper starting to reach for me while in someone else’s arms.  Plus she has giggles that she saves just for me.

Just yesterday I was thinking about this, how in love with the three of them I am . . . .

And literally two seconds later all hell broke lose.  All of my children were crying for different reasons, there were potty accidents from multiple children, there were endless fits, and fighting over literally nothing.

But still.  They are awesome.

And my awesome little kids love this awesome easy soup.  I know there are about a million chicken tortilla soups out there, but this one is made in the crock pot, has almost no prep to it, and it tastes amazing every single time I make it.  Plus!!  If you ration it out to six equal servings (which seriously makes for some big servings), it weighs in at less than 300 calories a bowl!  Top it with a little low fat sour cream and you will feel like you are eating a super rich fulfilling dinner, but you won’t be breaking the calorie bank?

(Have I told you I’m counting calories?  It sucks.)

I’ve already made this recipe a bunch of times, and it’s become a regular in our house because of how easy it is!

    This recipe for chicken tortilla doesn’t seem like it’s a complete recipe. Where is the tortilla’s. I assume you don’t leave the chicken in one piece. What is Diy taco seasoning? Can you explain this more. Thank You.

      Hi Pat! You are right, I should have added the step of shredding the chicken at the end. This is a recipe for soup, so there aren’t any tortillas involved, it is just meant to mimic the taste of a chicken tortilla. The DIY taco seasoning is another of my recipes. If you click on the link within the recipe, it will take you to it and you can get the details there. I love this soup, I hope you do too!

        I have lived in Mexico several years and the chicken tortilla soup was a favorite back then. The thing is: it actually HAD tortilla in it!!!! NOT just “mimic the taste”… the catch: add stripes of crispy tortillas just before serving. But still, this recipe seems great and I will definitely try it, but adding tortillas and cilantro! thanks!

      From looking at the picture it is obvious the tortillas are added on top before serving, along with other garnishes as desired! I’ve only made the beef (actually turkey burger) kind and will try this with chicken very soon.

    This was good, but my hubby and I had to add Tobasco to our bowls. Will probably use Rotel next time instead of just regular crushed tomatoes.

      Yeah, we made it pretty tame since we have toddlers eating it. But you could always increase the cayenne pepper to 1/4 tsp or even 1/2 tsp if you are feeling dangerous 🙂

  3. Sophia says

    I made this tonight to go along with the rainy weather. It was great! We also added tortilla chips before serving and I made corn bread muffins as well. Love this and will make it again often.

  4. Sabrina Tonn says

    Has anyone tried making this with dried black beans vs the canned ones since the sodium is so high in the canned version? Just curious!!

  5. Rachael says

    If I wanted to make this ahead of time and freeze how would you recommend I go about it?
    Cook it all and then freeze? – And if so what might be the best way to go about reheating?
    Or would it work all right to freeze all of the uncooked ingredients together, thaw overnight in fridge when ready to cook, and then pop into slower cooker that way?

    • says

      I would cook it all and then freeze. But honestly, it takes so little time to throw together, that you could make it the day you want it. Like seriously five minutes tops.

    Delicious recipe!! If I wanted to speed it up a bit and cook it on high would that be okay? How long do you think? I might just try it and find out but wanted to make sure it would still be the same, especially cooking the chicken all the way through. Will make this tonight to beat the snow!

  7. Shannon says

    This is excellent. The whole family loves it. Has become a regular at our house. Hubby requests it over and over! I use epicure chili seasoning and chili powder in ours. Thanks so much for the recipe oh I should mention even my picky 4 and 5 year old girls love it

  8. Lindsey says

    Will this meal freeze well before cooking? I am thinking about putting all ingredients in a freezer bag and then putting everything in my slow cooker on the day we would like to eat this soup. Have you ever tried this?

  9. Heather says

    I am going to make this tonight.. I have my own taco seasoning (out of a container).. How much should I use for this soup?

  10. Jack says

    I made this yesterday while it was snowing. I used diced boneless, skinless chicken thighs because that’s what I had and it turned out delicious! Thank you so much.
