Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup topped with shredded cheese, jalapeno, tortilla strips, and sour cream

Did you know tortilla soup is called tortilla soup because it’s thickened with tortillas?? It’s true. I read it on the internets somewhere once so it must be culinary fact.

Very Basic Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken

THE BEST shredded Mexican chicken in the slow cooker. Good in tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, burritos, or in salads! Chicken breasts and homemade Mexican seasoning cook in the crock pot with green chiles for an easy Mexican chicken.

(Super Chocolatey) Slow Cooker Hot Chocolate

Crock Pot Hot Chocolate Recipe

Slow Cooker Ginger-Soy Pork

Every year when summer comes to an end and the weather starts to cool off, I find myself in a serious state of food indecision: I’m ready to eat and make more comfort-food meals, but not quite ready to give up the freshness of summer, and also feeling like it’s too soon to dive head-first […]
