{NEW} Instant Pot / Crockpot / Stockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

A timeless recipe that converts to YOUR favorite cooking methods seamlessly!

Last week we had a “Snow Day” where schools were all canceled in SLC! The first time in many years! It was a snowstorm for the memory books!

Our kids and Goldendoodle spent time outside playing and cleaning-up the fresh powder while I let a big double batch of this tortilla soup cook all day in my largest slow cooker.

This recipe (as with most soup recipes) is very versatile! You can leave things out if you want, and always add “extras” and more of your favorite chosen ingredients!

Soup tastes better the next few days after sitting in the fridge, so double or triple for future meals.

This freezes well, too! Stored in freezer safe containers it will last in your freezer for 2 months.

We’ve also hosted family parties where Tortilla Soup becomes a big “serve yourself bar” with ALLL of the most delicious toppings chopped-up for our guests to enjoy! Fun and easy entertaining!Makes about 5-6 servings
