Tortilla Enchilada Soup

Someone asked for this recipe, which I had on the menu for last night. It is a super-easy crockpot meal, which is why I planned it for a Monday night.


4 cups chicken broth (I use 4 cups water and a teaspoon of chicken Better than Bouillon)
2 cans chicken with rice soup
1 small boneless skinless chicken breast (frozen is fine)
1 cup salsa or picante sauce
1 can red enchilada sauce

Flour tortillas
Shredded cheddar cheese OR cubes of velveeta-type cheese

In crock pot combine the broth, soup, chicken breast, salsa, and
enchilada sauce. Cook on low for about 4 hours. Remove chicken breast
from soup; shred it or cut in small pieces. Return to soup.
When ready to eat, cut flour tortillas into strips (scissors work best
for this). Put tortilla strips in each bowl and ladle the hot soup on
top. Top with shredded cheddar or cubed velveeta. About 6 servings.

This is another favorite in our “rotation” of crockpot meals. It is just delicious and soooo easy. Great with cornbread!
