Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

The best part about slow-cooker chicken tortilla soup is that it's super easy to make. Just toss all the ingredients in the cooker, and then let it do its thing.


  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 15- oz. can Black Beans rinsed
  • 1 c. frozen corn
  • 2 bell peppers chopped
  • 1 white onion chopped
  • 1 15- oz. can fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1/4 c. freshly chopped cilantro plus more for garnish
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp. cumin
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 c. low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 c. Shredded Monterey Jack
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 small corn tortillas cut into strips
  • Sliced avocado for serving
  • Sour cream for serving
  • Lime wedges for serving


  • In a large slow cooker, combine chicken, black beans, corn, peppers, onion, fire-roasted tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt, and chicken broth.
  • Cover and cook on low until chicken is cooked and falling apart, 5 to 6 hours.
  • Shred chicken with a fork, then top soup with Monterey Jack and cover to let melt, 5 minutes more.
  • Meanwhile, make tortilla crisps: In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add tortilla strips and cook until crispy and golden, 3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and season with salt.
  • Serve soup topped with tortilla crisps, avocado, sour cream, cilantro, and lime.

Allow this soup to simmer on the stove or in a slow-cooker for several hours, and your home will smell wonderful. The chicken becomes very tender, the vegetables become melt-in-your-mouth soft, and your kitchen will fill with a hearty fragrance of herbs, spices, beans and tortillas.
