Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

I checked the forecast last week and saw that there was ONE day of rain on the way.  I don’t think it has rained here in about 4 months and I was kind of looking forward to it.  I thought it would be perfect to put something in the crock pot to come home to.  I have been adding recipes to me Pinterest board but didn’t know what to pick!  One of my old friends from high school, Alehson, had put something about this soup on Facebook so I decided to message her.  Lucky for me she responded right away and told me how delicious it is. I always check the “reviews” on recipes because something may look good but you never know.  Of course it is always good to get the recipe from your friend OR favorite blogger 🙂  Thanks again, Alehson!

The recipe comes from Heather Likes Food (link below).  She also has some great other recipes so check it out!  I will say, I followed this pretty much exactly.  I did leave out the lime though because I save those for my cocktails 🙂   I also left off the avocado, but added light sour cream, low fat cheese and a sprinkle of tortilla salad topper strips (found by the croutons at the store) before consuming.

I’m sorry I don’t have step by step pictures—I need to get better at that!  It was 7am though so I was in a rush.
