Delicious SLOW COOKER Turkey Tortilla Soup Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

Guess what? It’s SLOW COOKER SUNDAY! Today we’re gonna make an absolutely delicious and super easy Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup recipe. This tortilla soup is GREAT for meal prep and it’s PACKED with great macros!

Start this one by browning 2 pounds of lean ground beef or turkey. You could also use chicken, just make sure you cook it and either shred or break it up first.

Next, take out your slow cooker. You can optionally line it with one of these for easy clean up. Add in whatever meat you’re using.

Follow your meat with 1 can of enchilada sauce, 1 can of crushed or diced tomatoes, 1 can of chopped green chile peppers, 1 chopped up yellow onion, 1 package of frozen corn, some cilantro, 1 can of drained & rinsed black beans, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, 1 1/2 teaspoons of chili powder, a little salt & black pepper, 1-2 bay leaves, and 4 cups of your choice bone broth.

Personally, I like to pair mine bone broth with the meat I’m using. If I’m using turkey like I am today, I use turkey bone broth. Easy enough, right?

Slow Cooker Time

Mix all of those ingredients up. Throw your lid on and cook it on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Once it’s done you can portion it out and top it with some tortilla strips!

A couple tips:

Make your own tortilla strips for your tortilla soup if you can’t find bagged ones. You can do this by either crushing up some hard shell tacos or brushing some soft shell ones with oil and baking them until crisp!

Don’t worry If you’re on the go and don’t have a way to heat this one up. Why? Well, this slow cooker tortilla soup recipe tastes great cold!
