Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

I'm a huge fan of Cafe Rio's chicken tortilla soup so I thought that I'd try to make a homemade version. This recipe is great for Sundays.


1 14.5 ounce can of stewed tomatoes in Mexican sauce
1 lb of chopped chicken breast
4 ounces of green chiles chopped
1/2 large onion chopped
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 teaspoon Chili Powder
1 teaspoon of dried Cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
2 cups of water
1 can of chicken broth
12 ounces of Enchilada sauce
tortilla strips


  1. Chop chiles, onion and chicken. (I used my small food processor and it saved a ton of time.)

  2. Pour chicken broth, enchilada sauce, water and stewed tomatoes into crockpot. Mix well.

  3. Add cilantro, salt, garlic, chili powder and cumin to mixture. Mix well.

  4. Add chicken, chilis and onion to crock pot.

  5. Cook on high for 2 1/2 hours.

  6. Top with tortilla strips and sour cream.

Servings: 4
