Woopi’s Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

IMG_1562Do you every get into a menu rut and can’t decide what to make? Well…if you enjoy cooking, you can snap out of the rut by trying this. I recommend finding a few people you see on the regular that also enjoy well prepared food and make it a point to exchange recipes with each other. It’s a great way to build (and perhaps enhance) your recipes by bouncing ideas back and forth with one another.

My friend Woopi and I always love exchanging recipes. Woopi’s also my hiking buddy so we talk food & recipes for hours some days!!! True foodies at heart!

Here is the mouth watering Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

4 boneless chicken breast
3 tablespoons of butter
1 onion chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup of salsa
1 can of black beans
1 can of kidney beans
1 cup of frozen roasted corn (Trader Joe’s)
2 teaspoons of cumin
1 packet of taco seasoning (Lawry’s)
1 tablespoon of chipotle seasoning
32oz chicken broth (Trader Joe’s)

Cream Mixture (Roux)
2 tablespoons of butter
3 tablespoons of flour
½ cup heavy cream (add more if needed to lighten up the mixture) optional
½ cup of cheddar cheese optional

Crushed corn chips (Trader Joe’s)
Mexican cheese
Sour cream

Melt butter in crockpot, place chicken, onion, garlic, salsa, beans, corn, and chicken broth in and mix. In a separate bowl, combine seasoning. Mix into crockpot. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.

Make the cream mixture (Roux). Melt butter on low and then quickly add flour until you get a creamy mixture to make the roux. Once everything is a creamy consistency, pour in heavy cream, cheese, & stir on low for another 3 minutes. Once well blended add into crockpot. Add this the last 15 minutes.

Top soup with corn chips, avocado, sour cream and cilantro. Enjoy!
