One of my all time favorite recipes is the slow cooker chicken tortilla soup recipe. It is super quick and easy to make, and my entire family seriously loves it. I love to crush tortilla chips into the bottom of a bowl, top that with cheese, and then scoop this yummy recipe over the top. It is seriously delicious, and one of our favorite recipes. I love how great it tastes after cooking all day long, and you will love the flavors this recipe creates. Plus, if you like freezer meals, I am sharing how to make this, freeze it, and save it for later. Let’s get started!
Toss these ingredients in the crock pot and cook all day on low, yummy!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup
My favorite way to make this is as a freezer meal. With a hectic family life and constant running during the week, this is a great meal to make ahead and freeze for a later date.
To make this a freezer meal, you would place a slow cooker liner into your crock pot and then add all of the ingredients as you would if you are cooking immediately. Once you have everything added, twist the top of the liner closed and add to a freezer bag, label it, and place into the freezer until you are ready to use it.
When you are ready to make this awesome meal, just grab your bag from the freezer, remove the freezer bag, and then place the liner with your frozen soup into the crock pot. Place your slow cooker on low and 8 hours later you will have a delicious meal.
