Crock Pot chicken tortilla soup is loaded with flavor! It’s the perfect 21 Day Fix dinner to come home to because it cooks itself and your house will smell amazing! Place the ingredients into the Crock and let the magic happen
Confession #55- Like a lot of you, we are trying to get used our new Back to School routine.
It’s totally kicking my butt.
To say we have a lot going on is an understatement, and my kitchen MVP right now is definitely my programmable Crock Pot…second only to my wine bottle opener.
The best Crock Pot recipes are the ones where you dump everything in, go about doing 8 million other things, and then you eat sometime later. Done, end of story.
And this Crock Pot chicken tortilla soup is the perfect example of just that. No need to use precooked chicken or saute any veggies. There isn’t even much to chop.
I do like to make homemade baked tortilla strips to serve this with, but in a pinch, some organic Tostitos would do just fine. It’s chilly here in PA today…the perfect weather for some homemade soup!
Here’s the Slow Cooker chicken tortilla soup recipe. Enjoy!
Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup
- 1 1/4 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts about 3-4 Breasts

Thank you so much for this recipe! I have been making it consistently for at least a year now. It is my teenage son’s most requested dish. So delicious, and I like things spicy so I just add a few Serranos in with the jalapeño and it works perfect. Thank you so much!
Teenage sons are a tricky bunch so I take this as a high compliment, thank you!
So good! Made it tonight and the whole family liked it!
Can I make this on HIGH in the crock pot? If so, how long will it take? I want it tonight but I don’t want to be eating at 9pm

So good! Beautifully colorful and very tasty on a very cold…-15F night. This will be added to my favorite recipes for sure! All I changed was I added a green pepper and a small can of black olives. This has great flavor and the perfect bit of heat. Thank you for sharing!
I love your additions, Stephanie!! I am going to try it that way myself!! Yay!

so when you say you can have 1/2 red, 1/2 green and 1/2 yellow that means you measure that out and that is what you can have correct or is it soup red1/2 something else 1/2 green and so on? please advise and then the toppings would be the little cups that are provided for each correct?
A serving size is 1 1/2 cups which is 1/2 red, 1/2 green, and 1/2 yellow per serving. If you add cheese, measure in your blue. And if you add the chips, count another 1/2 yellow. Hope this helps!
Hi, in an above comment you said that about 1/4 cup of the tortilla strips were included in the allotted container measurements. Here you said if you add the chips, to count another 1/2 yellow. So are the chips actually considered a topping?

Another fabulous recipe! I made this when I started the 21 day fix and my girls loved it! (My husband didn’t try it the first time because he was out the night I made it!). I forgot the jalapeno but had ones from the jar and used those. Yesterday I made it again for our soup lunch at work today (we had a snow day so my family ate it tonight and I made another batch for tomorrow!) This time I used a real jalapeno! It was fabulous! Just the right kick! This time the husband had it and loved it! Thanks for sharing your awesome recipes! It has made being on the 21 day fix so much easier! This will definitely be a repeat throughout the cold winter months!
I am SO thrilled to hear this!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to share such a wonderful comment…made my night!!! Best of luck to you…and so thankful to be able to help you on your journey. 🙂
Silly question: how do you shred the chicken once it’s already in the crockpot?
It will cook and then be very easy to shred! I just use two forks. You can also remove the chicken and shred in a separate bowl. Return back to crock before serving!
Is there something I can use in place of beans???
You can add more corn and even add some veggies if you want!
I’m totally new to the 21 day fix. Is this half a red, green, and yellow container or 1 to 2 red, green and yellow containers?
Hi! It’s 1/2 of each for 1 1/2 cups of soup! Enjoy and good luck with the FIX! Let me know if you need anything else :).
Thank you for this recipe! I have now made it 4-5 times and love it.
I’m so glad! Thanks for the nice note! 🙂
Tryin' it again! says
I made this once and loved it. I was wondering do you think I can throw the chicken in the crockpot frozen?
YUP! It will be just fine :).

Do you know the Nutritional information or just the color containers?
Just containers. You can plug this into my fitness pal for calorie count if that is what you are looking for! Enjoy!
Do you know what the calories are? I am trying to track it on my fitness pal but I am not sure how.
Do the measurements include the tortillas? Or are the tortillas considered a topping?
About 1/4 cup of chips per serving is allotted as part of the measurements. Good question – I should make this more clear!
