Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken tortilla soup is so good!!!  Especially in these winter months when it is freezing outside and you just want to warm up!  Not only is this recipe tasty, it is healthy too.  I also make sure to cut the veggies up super small because my kids don’t love the chunks, but they don’t mind it when they are ‘microscopic!’ So, I encourage you to try this version of chicken tortilla soup! It won’t disappoint!!!
