This crockpot chicken tortilla soup is one of my absolute favorite recipes. It’s the perfect recipe to serve a crowd if you’re having a viewing party, game night, or just a gathering of neighbors. You don’t need a huge kitchen to pull this dinner off because all you need is a crockpot! I love “one pot” cooking because of less mess!

Now as normal, I highly encourage you to tailor my recipes to fit your favorite flavors. Love things spicy? Add 2 teaspoons of chili powder or a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce to this soup. Vegetarian? Skip the chicken and add in diced bell peppers and carrots (and swap in vegetable broth for chicken broth). This is the perfect tortilla soup base that allows you to truly make it your own. Or you can try my recipe exactly. You won’t be disappointed!

Speaking of viewing parties and game nights, I feel like we are all meeting out at restaurants and bars more often as opposed to inviting neighbors and friends over to our apartments. Am I right? We ought to change that because cozy, intimate nights in with friends are much more fun! I’m challenging you to throw at least one little get-together this winter season. Serve up this crockpot chicken tortilla soup and your friends will be knocking on your door every weekend — or just give them this recipe!
