This recipe is so easy and just the ticket for a chilly day. 

Chicken Tortilla Soup (Crockpot)

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped small
juice 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp garlic, minced
1 can kernel corn, drained
1 can Rotel (tomatoes and chiles)
1 4 oz can diced green hatch chilis
48 oz or 6 cups chicken broth
1 bunch cilantro, stemmed and rough chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper (to season chicken)
2 tbsp olive oil


crushed tortilla chips per bowl
monterrey jack cheese
sour cream

Combine main list of ingredients in crockpot, and cook on high for 4-5 hours.  Remove chicken and shred, and return to pot.  Serve immediately, or set to low until ready to serve.  Alternately, cook on low for 7-8 hours (just enough time to set the crockpot and go to work!).

This recipe is on the spicy side, but the toppings do well to cut the heat, but still allow a nice spicey note at the end.  This will definitely make it into rotation at our house!

wow you have been in the missing ranks lately.

This looks wonderful. I will save it for when I am not on programed diet. It is totally diet card friendly if i use low fat SC and cheese, as well as some whole wheat tortilla.
