Chicken Tortilla(less) Soup

I was in the mood for a soup this weekend. Not something canned, and nothing heavy with a cream base. Here's a hearty and healthy recipe the entire family is sure to love. Feel free to make tweaks along the way with desired spice levels. I left out the tortilla strips (in an effort to make it more healthy). Enjoy!


  • 2-3 pounds of chicken breasts
  • 2-3 teaspoons of taco seasoning
  • Few dashes of cumin and chiptole chili seasoning
  • Garlic Salt
  • 1 large onion
  • 5-6 garlic cloves
  • 2 jalapenos
  • 2 poblano peppers
  • 6-8 cups of chicken broth (I used gluten free, free range, low sodium)
  • 1 28oz can of fire roasted tomatoes (Specifically used Muir Glen)
  • 2 limes (juiced)
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Avocados
  1. Pull out your handy dandy crockpot
  2. Put your chicken in the bottom of the crockpot.
  3. Pour in your chicken broth
  4. Dice up onion, peppers, and garlic. Throw them into the crockpot
  5. Season it up! Add in taco teasoning, other spices. 
  6. Top with the fire roasted tomatoes. 
  7. Juice two limes and also had a handful of chopped cilantro on top.
  8. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. 
  9. Serve in a bowl with some fresh cilantro and then chopped up avocado! (I promise this is way better and healthier then your favorite Mexican Restaurant soup!)
After 8 hours of cooking - the chicken is beautifully shredded
Adding some fresh cilantro on top! YUM
