Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

It’s been just frigid this week. It’s not often that Atlanta is colder than Alaska!  A perfect time to try this easy Chicken Tortilla Soup. Wouldn’t it be great to put all the ingredients in a slow cooker in the morning and have a hot meal ready when you get back from work (or skiing)!

This soup is a comforting blend of chicken, tomatoes, black beans, corn and green chiles with chicken stock, a few spices and enchilada sauce.  Top it off with quickly fried tortilla strips and a dollop of sour cream.  Yum!
