If you’ve been following along, you know that I’ve honored to be an ambassador for Old El Paso this year. It has been so fun to get creative with their amazing products. I took it old school this month with this Skinny Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup. I used their Green Chiles to make it a tad spicy, their Taco Seasoning to give it some extra (easy) flair, and garnished with Crispy Fried Tortilla Strips for some needed crunch. SO much Old El Paso to love in this one little recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes (or regular if you prefer less spicy)
  • 1 (4.5 ounce) can Old El Paso green chiles
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 4 cups cooked and shredded chicken (or rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 (1 ounce) packed Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
  • 1 (11 ounce) can steamed corn, drained and rinsed
  • FOR THE TORTILLA STRIPS
  • 2 cups canola oil
  • 2 8" Old El Paso Burrito Tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
  • OPTIONAL GARNISHES
  • cilantro, Old El Paso sliced Jalapenos, low fat sour cream, low fat shredded cheese

Instructions

  1. Heat oil over medium/high heat in a medium skillet. Add onion and garlic and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. I like mine to be a bit under-sauteed, to keep a bit of their crunch.
  2. Once sauteed, add the onion and garlic to a slow cooker over high heat. Add in all other ingredients except for tortillas and garnishes. Stir to combine.
  3. Heat on high, covered, for 2-3 hours, or on low for 4-5 hours.
  4. Before serving, prepare the tortilla crisps:
  5. In a small saucepan, heat the canola oil over medium/high heat.
  6. Spray each tortilla with olive oil and sprinkle with the taco seasoning. Use a pastry brush to spread out the taco seasoning evenly.
  7. Using a pizza cutter, cut each tortilla into 1/2 inch strips.
  8. Cook the strips in batches, about 2-4 minutes or until browned. Some of the taco seasoning will come off into the oil, and that's okay.
  9. Using a slotted spoon, remove the strips and allow to drain on a paper towel.
  10. When ready to serve the soup, serve garnished with extra cilantro, low fat sour cream, jalapenos, and tortilla strips. Or any of your favorite toppings!
  11. Enjoy!

I need to try this soup asap! I never use my slow cooker and my hubby is always yelling at me to use it more. Hehe. I'm glad January is almost gone. I am over being good for my New Years resolution. I'm ready to cheat. ;)
