Okay, who’s watching it? You know what I’m talking abut – Making a Murderer. Addictive right?! I usually have a tendency to resist anything that is “viral” for as long as I can (I don’t know, I’m weird.) but when I heard about this documentary I just couldn’t resist. I don’t know if I’m happy or not that I watched it. It is so twisted, heart wrenching, frustrating, and confusing. GAH I just don’t know what to think.
What DO I know? I have been all about the comforting, healthy, and easy meals, like this Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup. Couldn’t we all use a big bowl of this soup?!
This Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup is everything I love about soups – warm, filling, and lots of toppings! I mean, what’s soup without the toppings?
I can’t have chili without cheese, sour cream, green onions, and crushed saltines.
I can’t have french onion soup without croutons and Swiss cheese.
I can’t have potato soup without bacon, shredded cheese, and green onions.
And I certainly can’t have tortilla soup without crispy, homemade tortilla strips along with shredded cheese, cilantro, and green onions! I could’ve gone even further and added sour cream and avocado but I wanted you to actually be able to see the soup underneath all the toppings.
That’s not to say the soup itself isn’t delicious – because it is! A broth-based soup with tomatoes, green chiles, black beans, corn, spices, and shredded chicken. Full of flavor and as much spice as you want. Me? I’m a wimp, so our version was Minnesota nice.
So whether you’re looking for a healthy easy dinner, needing a comforting soup to get you over a winter cold, or need some sustenance to get you through the last few episodes of Making a Murderer, this soup has got you covered! Just don’t forget those toppings.
