Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup


Last week I made this tried and true Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup for our amazing teachers at Morgan's school. After getting a request for the recipe, I realized I needed to repost this must-have golden nugget. The original 2013 post is below. Enjoy!

With the cold season upon us it's the perfect time to simmer soups and stews in your slow-cooker. Last week I picked up a rotisserie chicken from Costco (you can't beat $4.99 for a whole chicken) and made this delicious Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup from Allrecipes. I had never had this type of soup before and quickly realized that I have been missing out. Don't forget a splash of lime juice right before serving as it sends the fresh flavor over the top!

GNG Tip: I replaced the 2 cups water with chicken stock and added a can of black beans (drained). Also, after picking off all of the chicken I placed the carcass in another crockpot with ten cups of water, 2 celery stalks, a carrot, and onion to make homemade chicken stalk to freeze for future use.

Moe's Famous Queso (Copycat Recipe)

After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at Seeded at the Table. I think it's right on the money!

Whole Foods Cracklin' Cauliflower

Whole Foods opened up across the street from our neighborhood. Like, literally, across the street. It has been a long time coming and highly anticipated, so when they finally opened their doors, I went THREE times on the first day! The ever-changing salad bar is our bank account's downfall. Every day at noon it keeps calling my name, taunting me with quick, easy, and healthy options for lunch when I'm hangry.  

I always get a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a bigger receipt than I had hoped for. So, I decided that I would start making batches of these sides in my own kitchen so that I could enjoy them all week long without the guilt. You can purchase the Whole Foods Market Cookbook on Amazon!

First up, one of my absolute favorites, the Indian inspired Cracklin' Cauliflower! It's so good that I recommend making at least a double batch!

Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut

Bobby Flay's Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut recipe came highly recommended from my soccer friend Little Lisa. She has very good taste in EVERYTHING so I knew I had to try it after she raved one night before stepping out on the field. Easy to make and bursting with flavor, this fresh fish dish is a keeper!
