Growing up the slow cooker was reserved mostly for a roast. In fact, I don’t recall my mom using it to cook anything else.

As a wife and mother, I’ve come to love my slow cooker for making healthy and delicious meals in a jiffy. So many recipes with a slow cooker you simply layer the ingredients in the crock, turn it on and walk away.

That’s the deal with Chicken Tortilla Soup. Turn it on and walk away…

Healthy Slow Cooker Tex Mex Chicken Soup Tips

  1. I used Swanson® Broth instead of water in this recipe. It really makes the soup richer with more depth of flavor. Campbell’s makes new and innovative products like Swanson® Broth that makes mealtime easier for busy families.
  2. I used a spicy tomato cocktail juice, but you can use regular or even plain tomato juice if you prefer.
  3. You may substitute 2 cups fresh or frozen corn for the canned corn. Likewise, you can substitute 2 cups cooked black beans for the canned black beans.

You’ll find other uses for Swanson® Broth besides the typical soups and stews. Swanson® Broth increases the flavor in grains like rice, risotto, couscous, and polenta. Sauces dress up everyday dishes and Swanson® Broth makes these better. Try it in a roux, alfredo, marinara, and curry.

  1. Why would your recipe let me print it. All the other soups did. I tried 12 times with no luck.

    1. Maybe something weird was glitching on it at the time, I tested it and had a couple different people test it and it worked.

  2. This looks so delicious! How many will this serve? there are four of us & we all love soupd like this in the fall & winter. Will I need to double this to get two meals from this recipe?
    It certainly looks worthy of more than 5 stars! I truly love your recipes; I yet to be disappointed with any of them that I’ve tried!

  3. How many does this serve ??? Do you know the Nutritional Count on this recipe, it would really help !!! It looks really good, but need this info….Thanks !!!
