Today I am sharing one of the freezer meals I made at the end of my pregnancy. Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is on our regular rotation in my house. I always make it a little bit different and add a variety of garnish options to spice up the soup. I just love it.

Garnishes, in my opinion, add a lot to soups like this one or chili.  The nice thing is you can set the bowls out so your guests can fix up their soup to their tastes.  In our house we like freshly chopped cilantro, fresh lime juice, sharp cheddar or pepper jack cheese, chopped fresh jalapenos and crispy tortilla strips.

When making this Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup you just throw everything in, set the timer and forget about it until dinner. It doesn’t get much easier than that! If you have leftovers or want to make a double batch just let the soup completely cool on the counter then refrigerate it overnight.  Once it is completely cool store it in glass Tupperware or freezer ziplock bags with the date and name of the soup on the outside and throw it in the freezer for later!

      I agree! It has been SO cold here–negative temperatures most of the winter. These are the kind of meals I like to make to keep us warm and have leftovers!
