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!

Any idea what the calories per serving would be?
Mehgan
What size can of fire roasted tomatoes do you use?
Natalie
Is this very spicy? I'm wondering if my 4.5 year old will eat it, because I want too.
Nicole
Is there a way to use uncooked or frozen chicken in this recipe? Looking to simplify it more lol.
    Becky Hardin
    The chicken would need to be cooked beforehand because it wouldn't cook through in the slow cooker in time. You could most likely use cooked frozen rotisserie chicken and that would be fine. Hope that helps!
    Lindsey
    I made with frozen chicken breasts! I just lowered the chicken broth by half a cup since frozen chicken emits quite a bit of juices. I just cooked it on low for 5+ hours! My crockpot has always seemed to run hot though! It worked wonderfully :)
Lil
This looks so good! Do you know what the calories is per serving and how much a serving would be? My daughter and I are doing a lower calorie diet and would need this info. Thanks!
    Becky Hardin
    I'm so sorry I don't currently have an app on the site calculate the nutritional info. I hope to add that feature in the future if I can find a reliable source :)
Brittany
Do you think baking the tortilla strips will be as good as frying them ?
Toni
Just made this tonight and it is delicious!
Bonnie
Is it possible to cook this soup on a stove top in less time?
    Becky Hardin
    I haven't made it that way but I'm sure you could. Just let it simmer long enough for all the flavors to go together fully. Enjoy!
Krystal-Lynn
I was also wondering about the can sizes and to add the seasoning into the soup or just for the tortillas?
    Becky Hardin
    Hey Krystal-Lynn - I updated the recipe to include can sizes, sorry about that! You add 1 ounce of taco seasoning into the soup and use the 1 tablespoon for the tortillas. So it's both. Hope you love the recipe!
Liz
GREAT RECIPE!!! Family loved it!PS. Olive Oil is spelled wrong in the ingredients list.
