Chicken Tortilla Soup-The Southern Lady Cooks

This easy chicken tortilla soup is our “go to” soup for any outside event, such as tailgating or camping. It’s so easy because it is only 6 cans all thrown in a big pot together. You can do this on the stove top, over a camp fire, or in a crock pot. I know some people would always rather have homemade food, but this recipe is perfect for those occasions where you need a super easy way to prepare something.  You might also like our recipe for black-eyed pea cabbage soup.

Chicken tortilla soup is a very versatile recipe and can be made several different ways.

Put all canned ingredients in crock pot and turn on desired temp. If you plan to eat this much later, just put on low and leave it. If you are in a hurry turn on high. You’re only wanting to heat everything up.
