  1. Add to the Crock Pot after softening onion, garlic, and jalapeno (or green chilies) in olive oil.
  2. Cook everything in the slow cooker for four hours on high or eight hours on low.
  3. Cooked chicken should be shredded and added back to the soup just before serving.

For added crunch, serve with torn-up tortilla chips or strips.

Even while this Crock Pot Tortilla Soup dish is a complete dinner in and of itself, everyone may customize their own delicious version with a few more “mix-ins” on the side.

To add texture, tortilla strips are placed on top of a classic chicken tortilla soup (tortilla chips are a great substitution). Over hot tortilla soup, shredded cheddar, or Monterey jack cheese will melt to perfection. Garnish with chopped cilantro, pepperoncini slices, or black olive slices for a vibrant Mexican taste.
