Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup
i was excited to try this for dinner this week because 1, it's been freezing here which makes soup perfect, 2, i love easy crockpot meals, and 3, the pictures from this blog made it look so good! http://www.chef-in-training.com/2011/12/crockpot-chicken-tortilla-soup/ it was so good and so easy! i gathered my ingredients, threw them in the crockpot, and when i got home from work, the house smelled so good, and dinner was ready. i love days like that.
now, you can't see from the picture, but my second can of rotel is hot. mr. d likes things a little spicy, so i thought i'd throw one can of hot in. boy, was it hot. mr. d liked it, a lot, he was raving on and on about it, but it was a bit too spicy for my taste. the tortilla chips on top were my favorite part. adding some crunch and salty flavor.
the recipe called for 1-2 cups of water, but i did not add any. after putting all the ingredients in the crockpot, it looked to be about the right "soupy" consistency i wanted.
