Crock Pot Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

creamy chicken tortilla-6778

You guys.

I’m sitting here right now just praying you have a slow cooker so you can make this today…or tomorrow…or this weekend. Basically, as soon as possible. I’m not quite sure how to describe this other than I *think* I might actually like it more than white chicken chili and I never thought that would ever happen. Ever. I’ve been making white chicken chili about once a month for years now, but after tasting this creamy chicken tortilla soup I thiiiiiiiink I have a new favorite.

This soup is as easy as it comes. Just throw all the ingredients in the crock pot in the morning and enjoy a comforting bowl of goodness that night. Some chicken tortilla soup recipes are rather thin and brothy, but not this one. Nope. This soup is thick, creamy and just slightly spicy.

Top bowls with crunchy tortilla chips, avocado chunks, shredded cheese, cilantro and jalapeno slices! Dinner.is.served.

Before you all tell me that I already have a chicken tortilla soup recipe on the blog so why make another, allow me to explain.

Basically, everything is better in the slow cooker. And as much as I love the old recipe, this one just blows it out of the water for two big {simple} reasons.

1. Chicken thighs

2. Sour cream

Lately, I’ve been cooking with chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts and let’s just say I’m officially on the dark side now. So tender! So delicious! So easily shredded after seven hours in a crock pot jacuzzi. Sure, you can make this recipe with chicken breasts and I’m sure it’s still exceptionally tasty… BUT…just try it once with chicken thighs? Then, let’s talk.

The sour cream addition is sort of obvious. Everything tastes better when made creamy. It gives the soup a nice little tang and cuts a bit of the spice. You’ll never go back to another version after trying this one, I assure you!

Did I mention how insanely easy it is to make?

    I recently switched over to team chicken thighs as well and it really makes all the difference! They blow the flavor and texture if white meat right out of the water. When the weather cools downs I love making soup on Sunday then packing it for lunch all week. I think I just found this Sunday’s recipe! Thanks, it looks like a winner!

      October 17, 2013 at 10:35 am

      It does, actually. To kill salmonella, you just need to heat food at 131 degrees for one hour – in the slow cooker, your food simmers for 12 hours so all icky bacteria is definitely killed in that process.

    I have to let you know, this soup was life changing for me yesterday. I have a yucky cold. While I like my other tortilla soup recipes, I have not loved them. My husband and I both loved, loved, loved this one! It was a cold night, complete with the first snow of the season and was just what my stuffed up head needed. What was really crazy is that I had all of the ingredients on hand! (I did use chicken breasts and it was just fine for us).

    I’m desperately trying to leave my desk to warm some up for lunch.

    Sad day. I prepped this and had it in the crock pot when I left for work this morning. I walked in the house tonight expecting the delicious smell of chicken tortillia soup but no such luck. Our power company turned off our power from 9-3 for maintenance work (which I’d known about but then forgotten–blerg!). The entire thing went in the trash and we’re instead going to have frozen mushroom risotto from TJs. Sigh.

    Made this to cook Sunday night for Monday night’s dinner, SO GOOD. A couple of modifications I made: took the time to defat the chicken thighs. Since its all in the crockpot, the fat can’t go anywhere, so I tried to remove it before it went in. Then, because I was feeding someone lactose-intolerant and left the sour cream as a garnish, after pulling the chicken thighs out, I took my immersion blender to the soup base. This broke up the beans and gave the soup a wonderful thickness. Then I added the corn, tortillas and shredded chicken back in. Next time, I’m going to add the corn tortillas before the 8-hour cook time so they can fully break down and give the soup some thickness. Great recipe, my guests and I completely gobbled it down!!

    Word to the wise, this makes a LOT of soup. My crock pot wasn’t big enough! I put everything in except the 2nd carton of broth, cooked all day, then transferred to a bigger pot (on medium-high on the stovetop) and added the remaining broth with the last cooking steps. Worked great!

    To prepare, rinse/drain the black beans and place in the bottom of your slow cooker (give it a quick spray to prevent sticking). Then layer with the Rotel, corn, onions and peppers. Top with 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Whisk together the cream of chicken soup, enchilada sauce and milk. Pour over chicken. Cook on high for 6 hours or on low for 8-10 (my preferred amount of time). Remove the chicken and shred with forks. Place the shredded chicken back in the slow cooker and combine with the rest of the soup ingredients. Ladle into bowls, top with tortilla strips, cheese and ENJOY!

    You don’t need a crock pot for this! Use a nice heavy dutch oven type pot. Start it about 2-3 hours before you want to serve it. I made it for our mid-autumn supper tonight, came out fabuloso! Skinned & boned the thighs, sauteed the onions a bit, threw in the chicken (cut up in 1″ chunks), added the garlic for a minute, then threw the rest in as if using the crock pot. Covered it up & simmered for 1-1 1/2 hours. Then added the corn & tortillas (I roasted mine over the flame for extra flavor). Let simmer another 15 minutes, mixed the sour cream in a 1/2 cup heavy cream then finished the soup with it. Delicioso! Served with avocado, cilantro, cheese, green onions, sour cream, hot sauces etc at table.

    My husband had asked me if I could make him Chicken Tortilla Soup because it’s his favorite. Since I had never eaten it before I didn’t know where to start until I came across your recipe. I made it tonight and we both LOVED it. We both had two bowl fulls and 5 hours later I’m still full LOL. I did have one question though – my soup didn’t turn out thick and creamy….It was still very brothy. As I said it was delicious but I’m just wondering when it normally gets thick? I was thinking as I poured in two quarts of chicken stock that I couldn’t understand how it would possibly thicken. Thanks for the recipe we will be enjoying this all week and it’s in the rotation for the future!

      I encountered the same thing when I made the recipe. The first time I made this recipe I actually used half of the amount of specified chicken stock (1 qt vs 2 qts), and the second time I used 2 qts. I MUCH preferred the version with only 1 qt of liquid. With 2 qts (aka 8 cups), when I made it, the broth was thin and not very creamy, nor flavorful. It’s delicious with only 1 qt (aka 4 cups) of broth however.

    I’ve just started cooking my chicken breasts in the crock pot, can’t believe it took me so long to discover this tip! I love that I can leave them while I’m working or doing chores around the house and then they are so easy to shred up for soup or sandwiches the next day. Or whenever! Can’t wait to try this recipe, I am definitely in soup mode lately!

    I have a question about the torn corn tortillas in the soup … are they just the regular soft tortillas (like you make tacos/fajitas with?) and so there a torn pieces floating around in the soup? Or crunchy chip corn tortillas?
    BTW: Have you had Whole Foods own Corn Tortilla Chips they make now? They are SO GOOD! They are light and crispy, perfectly salted and only have about 5 ingredients total. I won’t buy bagged/mass produced corn tortilla chips again.

        Hi Jenna, I am searching some things to make for my parents and I
        but when I see a dish that calls for cream in it I am kindof not sure if they mean the cream like in the dairy section next to half and half or what? Can you give me an idea what to look for in the grocery store?

    when a dish calls for cream, what specifically is that? And where can you find it?
