When I originally published this Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe, it was for a One Pot Chipotle Chicken Tortilla Soup, prepared on the stovetop,

Since that time, my evenings have gotten busier, and needed to adapt the recipe to work in my Crock Pot also.

It’s DELICIOUS either way you prepare it, but the Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe works best for us in this season of life.

Usually, when I prepare a recipe different ways, I’ll post each way as a separate post.

However, my new Recipe Card tool has just started allowing users to bold sections, so I decided to give it a try and see how it works offering two methods in one recipe post.

If y’all prefer it this way, I’ll start sharing them this way.

If it doesn’t work out, no big deal.

I’ll just go back to creating two posts 🙂

I love this twist on "plain" chicken soup! I also love the pictorial recipe directions. (I'm a visual person and they give me confidence!)
