Lately my instant pot has been getting more and more attention, but my slow cooker is always going to have its place in my home too.

Though the slow cooker doesn’t cook things as quickly as the instant pot, I do love it for the fact that you can just dump everything into the crockpot in the morning, and then have dinner waiting for you in the evening. It’s especially useful if you work during the day, or if you’re out and about with the kids, or if you have a potluck to attend.

This Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is a recipe that I’ve been making for years.

I especially love it since it’s one of those recipes where you can just dump everything into the pot and let it cook away. There’s no pre-browning of the chicken, no sauteeing ingredients, etc. You can even add everything to the slow cooker liner the night before, stick it in the fridge, and put it in the crockpot the next morning. That makes things extra easy!
