Recipe Fun Friday- CrockPot Tortilla Soup

I'm running behind on posting this due to my internet server shutting down for most of the day.

I made this tortilla soup by googling "crockpot tortilla soup" and combining several of the recipes that came up.

Crockpot Tortilla Soup

4 Cups chicken broth

3 cooked boneless chicken breasts, shredded

2 (14 ounce) cans Mexican-style crushed tomatoes with chilies

2 cans Black beans

1 can of corn (I didn't have any frozen corn; this worked fine)

Lots of fresh garlic :) We love the stuff!

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp crushed red peppers

I dumped it all into the crock-pot and cooked on low overnight. I didn't have any corn tortillas, which I would have sliced up and cooked in it, so we had to settle for tortilla chips in the bowl.

I also sprinkled mexican blend grated cheese on top, as well as sour cream (lowfat in my case:).

I'm not usually a fan of recipes that take a mixture of canned ingredients, but in this case it was fast and easy. And quite delicious as well.

Here's the finished product:

Yummy! And it looks so pretty and appetizing. I may have to try this, especially since it cooks in the crockpot. I LOVE my crockpot!
