If you are anything like me you enjoy a simple and easy crockpot recipe from time to time, its one of those toss it in the pot and just let it slow cook all day kind of things.
Here is one of my faves that is so easy yet so delicious at the same time, its a hit with my kids and the hubby too.
Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup
3 whole Chicken Breasts
2 teaspoons Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Cumin
Salt And Pepper, to taste
1 whole Medium Onion, Chopped
1 whole Red Bell Pepper, Seeded And Chopped
1 whole Seeded Yellow Bell Pepper, Chopped
1 can (28 Ounce) Whole Or Diced Tomatoes, With Juice
1 can Rotel
3 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth (more If You Like The Soup More Liquidy)
4 ounces, weight Tomato Paste
1 whole Chipotle Pepper In Adobo (may Add 2 To 3 If You’d Like)
1 can Black Beans, Drained And Rinsed
1 Lime, Juiced
Fixins: Sour Cream, Avocado, Cilantro Leaves, Grated Cheese
Place the chicken in the slow cooker. Sprinkle on the chili powder, cumin, and salt and pepper. Add the onion, bell pepper, tomatoes, chicken broth, tomato paste, chipotle, and black beans. Stir, place the lid on the slow cooker, and cook on high for 5 hours or high (or 8 hours on low.) Stir in the lime juice.
Using 2 forks, break up the chicken into chunks (or you may shred it finer.) Taste and add more salt if the soup needs it.
Serve it piping hot in a bowl with avocado, sour cream, grated cheese, and cilantro leaves on top!
