Easy Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

I don’t think I’ve ever shared my  favourite personally created recipe with you all. It’s not too hard to call it my favourite because I’ve really only ever created about 3 things on my own- so there’s not much competition. Regardless, this one definitely is on top. And since I shared it with a few people on a forum *AND* they seem to love it (yes people actually used my recipe to make their own dinner) I thought I’d share with everyone else too. We had it for dinner tonight and I could eat two more bowls but then Andrew would have to roll me around the house. Sooo here it is for all my dearest friends and random internet strangers:

Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup (for the crockpot/slow cooker)


•1 large (300g) chicken breast

•1 15oz can (420g) cream of chicken soup

•1 jar of salsa (375g)

•1 small can of corn (310g) or about 2 cups fresh corn kernels

•1 cup green bell pepper/capsicum- chopped

•Bag of corn tortilla chips

•1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

•1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese (optional  but it s so much better with cheese)

•Coriander/Cilantro (optional)

•Fresh chilli (optional)



1. Dump the salsa, cayenne pepper, corn, cream of chicken soup and bell pepper in the slow cooker- then stir it all up

2. Place the chicken breast in the mixture. No need to cut the chicken yet

3. Pour about 2 cups of crushed tortilla chips into the mixture and mix around.

4. Cook on low for 5-6 hours (you can leave it longer if you have to)

5. Uncover about 10 minutes before serving and gently shred the chicken into pieces with a fork, let cook for a few more minutes

6. Scoop the deliciousness into bowls and sprinkle cheese, crushed corn chips and cilantro/coriander over the top


You can eat this in a bowl as a soup or I like to roll some up in a flower tortilla and eat it like a burrito.

  1. This was delicious and so easy to prepare in the morning. I used 1 & 1/2 chicken breasts and topped with tortilla strips, taco cheese, sour cream and cilantro.
