Chicken Tortilla Crockpot Soup

Standard

To Make the Soup: Place everything for the soup in your crockpot and cook on high heat for 4 hours or on low for 12 hours. After cooking, remove the chicken breasts from the crockpot and shred with two forks. Place chicken back in crockpot and stir to combine. Enjoy!

To Make the Tortilla Strips: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Cut the tortillas into strips using a sharp knife or pizza cutter. Lay tortilla strips on baking pan (be careful not to overlap, you can use 2 baking pans if needed), and spray tortilla strips with cooking spray. Sprinkle seasoning evenly over tortilla strips. Bake for Bake for about 5 – 7 minutes, or until tortilla strips are crisp and they turn lightly brown. Once completely cooled, store in a sealed container. Add to soup just before serving.
