Update - Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe
I recently made this chicken tortilla soup recipe for a family vacation, so I did not need to cook. I added the raw ingredients into a gallon freezer baggie and then double-bagged it. This helped protect the freezer from leakage of liquid. I placed it in the freezer on its side so it would be flat when frozen. You can place it on a cookie sheet if you are concerned about leaking the liquid.
Then, when I pulled it out, I placed it in a bowl to defrost. It took a while but when it was defrosted enough, I transferred the raw ingredients into the slow cooker and cooked it for 8 hours because there was still ice on the chicken breast pieces. Below is what the ingredients in the bag looked like when I took it out of the freezer.
The result after the update!
It was amazing! You can top it with your favorite shredded cheese or homemade guacamole recipe. Below is what it looked like just before enjoying it. What do you think? Would you eat it?
