Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

Ok I know I know, it's hot outside, quit with the soups already! But I love soups so much. It's a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies, if you have some picky ones. Soups make life so much easier!  You just throw it in the pot and let is simmer.  This one is even better because its done in the crock pot!  No heating the house!  You can cook it on the stove very easily. But if you have a crock pot... use it.  The flavors marry together so much more, its awesome!

This one is also a huge hit in my family!  Even for my littlest one.  If you do this one on the stove, I would cook the chicken ahead of time.  And simmer it on low for a while to let the flavors meld together.  If you are using a crock pot, just throw every thing in raw!

I always seem to have all these ingredients on hand, and the combination of all these ingredients has such a yummy outcome. I'm making it tonight for our family Christmas party. Love it Jennie!
