Slow Cooker Chicken Chili Tortilla Soup is a family friendly, healthy and delicious meal that is easy to make for busy weekdays.
We’ve been having some cold, blustery days lately so hearty soups, chili and stews have been on my mind a lot. My youngest son loves all things chili. I actually think I could make chili every day and he’d never get sick of it. This Slow Cooker Chicken Chili Tortilla Soup was my way of making chili in another form, just to mix things up a bit. This recipe is so easy – you just dump everything into a slow cooker and let it cook away. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs, frozen corn, black beans, fire-roasted tomatoes, red bell pepper, red onion, and a pack of chili seasoning. There’s no added fat, so it’s healthy too.
Slow Cooker Chicken Chili Tortilla Soup
- 1 pound skinless boneless chicken breasts or thighs
- 15 ounces fire roasted chopped tomatoes
- 15 ounces black beans rinsed and drained
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 red bell pepper chopped
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 1 pack chili seasoning
- 1 cup frozen corn
Corn Tortilla Strips
- 4 corn tortillas
- olive oil for brushing on tortillas
- lime wedges
- fresh avocado diced
- fresh cilantro leaves chopped
Place soup ingredients in slow cooker and mix together. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours; remove chicken and shred; return to pot.
Corn Tortilla Strips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly brush both sides of corn tortillas with oil; cut tortillas into strips and place on baking sheet in single layer; bake 8-10 minutes until browned and crisp (be careful, they brown and burn quickly after about 8 minutes).
Ladle soup into bowls; top with avocado, cilantro, tortilla strips and a squeeze of lime juice.

Your youngest and I share a love of chili – and this sounds pretty fantastic, Jeanette! I am very curious about those GF “Little’s” Chili seasonings – they would be such a timesaver during the busy holiday season!
I’m all about the slow cooker/soup recipes during this time of the year! :] This looks fantastic!
I wish the weather was a bit cooler around here (instead of raining every single day!)..regardless, this soup I can eat anytime! My poor slow cooker, it never gets a break these days 😉
