Crockpot Tortilla Soup

This is another recipe I received at my bridal shower in 2004.  The first time I made this I accidentally used black beans instead of the ranch style beans that it calls for, but it was so delicious that I never went back to the original recipe.  This is my favorite soup and not only because it's so delicious!!  It's also a cinch to make!!!  I make this throughout the fall and winter and almost every year on Christmas Eve!  Serve with shredded cheese (I like the Mexican blend!), sour cream, and tortilla chips!!!  I get lots of requests for this recipe!

 This is such a yummy soup!!!!

 Here's what you'll need!  Yes, that's it!!  If you know how to use a can opener, you can make this one!!


 Place 3-4 chicken breasts in crockpot.   I like to spray my crockpot with a nonstick spray.  Also, I like to season the chicken with salt and pepper.


 Add 2 cans of Rotel.  I use the original flavor.  I think it's important to put the Ro-Tel on the chicken first to give it great flavor!

 Drain and rinse black beans.


 Add black beans over Ro-Tel.

 Add 1 can corn undrained.


 Add 2 cans chicken broth.  Cook on HIGH for 6 hours or LOW for 10-12 hours.


 At the end of cooking time, remove chicken and shred.  This won't take much effort.  That chicken will be fork tender!!!  Return shredded chicken to crockpot.

 Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips!!


This recipe always gets rave reviews!!!!  Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I also pinned it and just finished putting it all in the crockpot! I'm just curious, does it need any seasonings?

  4. I don't season it. The Rotel will add lots of flavor. If you find that the seasoning is not spicy enough, you might consider trying another flavor of Rotel. There are a few different varieties.

  5. Here's a good recipe, use all these ingredients (chicken fully cooked &no broth or tomatoes, unless u like fresh ones) over romaine lettuce top with cheese & a few crush tortilla chips and use the hidden valley spicey ranch. It's a fabulous south west salad, u can even have with out the chicken and it's still great!!

  12. Making this tonight with a couple modifications. Used thighs rather than breast and used a chunky mild salsa rather than rotel.

  13. Made this the other night, and found there to be a little too much broth. I think I'll either add some flour or tortillas to thicken it up a little. Otherwise, the flavor was spot on!
