Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

It’s a new week and new recipes are about to pop the seams of this blog. We had some serious family time over the last week with both our families and did all kinds of cooking and baking. It was so fun! Now I’m back and ready to share all of the yummy recipes with you. So brace yourselves! It’s about to get good.

One of my favorite things to eat at Applebees is Chicken Tortilla Soup. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, I love a good bowl of that stuff with a half sandwich. I recently went on the hunt for a yummy Chicken Tortilla Soup I can make at home and was thrilled to find a recipe not only for this type of soup, but a crock pot recipe. Oh happy day! A good meal with half the mess and work.

Fall is quickly approaching and soup is one of my favorite things to eat on a fall evening. Enjoy taking a break from preparing a huge meal and give this one a try in your crock pot! It’s so good and will be perfect to make again all fall long.

    Oh YUM! I love Chicken Tortilla Soup (although I’ve never had Applebees – this one sounds delish!) but I hardly ever make it cause it’s so time consuming at dinner time, but this will be awesome. Thanks!! Can’t wait to try it.
