Crock Pot Primal Chicken Tortilla Soup

just a few of the ingredients

SOOOO easy!  This is one of those fix it and forget it meals.  It is pretty frugal, too!  Thanks to my sister-in-law for sending it to me.



Ingredients:
  • 2 cans ro-tel (diced tomatoes and green chilis)
  • 1 (15oz) can Tomato Sauce
  • 1 c. salsa
  • 1 can corn*
  • chopped carrots, celery, and onion (the equivalent of 1 can of veggies)*
  • 2 to 4  boneless skinless chicken breasts, frozen or thawed
  • cumin, optional
  • cilantro, optional

Instructions:

Dump all ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low till ready to serve.  6 hours if breasts are thawed, 8 if frozen is about right.  The chicken meat just shreds in the pot with a fork.  I put in a bit of cumin in, too.  I also add some chopped fresh cilantro at the end, because I love it.  Serve with fresh avocado or guacamole!

*The original recipe calls for 2 cans of black beans, but I sub with other veggies.  Corn is not paleo, but I like the little sweetness it adds.

Update 1/21/13: I made this again, left out the corn and veggies, and subbed 1 can of plain diced tomatoes for 1 of the cans of ro-tel (in an effort to make it milder for my children), and it was still delish!
