Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – I LOVE MY CROCKPOT. With two young kids, I am busy…constantly. And cooking a healthy Weight Watchers Recipe in my crockpot, can make getting dinner together an absolute breeze. This Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe is one of the kids’ favorites, and it’s just 6 Points per serving (without the toppings). I just throw in all of the ingredients in the morning, then come dinner time, it’s ready to go! That long, slow simmering process gives the fiberrific soup such fantastic flavor, which I love. Of course, no chicken tortilla soup would be complete without some toppings, so feel free to add on whatever you like – just make sure you calculate the extra Point or two that it may add. Here are some great topping suggestions: avocado slices, reduced fat shredded Montery Jack cheese, sour cream, jalapeño slices, diced red onion, crumbled tortilla chips, chopped cilantro and lime wedges. Yum!

  1. This is one of my all time favorite soups and I’m eager to try this recipe. I have a 4 quart slowcooker. Do you think I should half the recipe?

  2. Yum. Gotta make this once a year and for 2014, your version is the one I’m going to try! Thanks ;)

  3. I calculated this recipe using the Weight Watchers recipe builder and got 7 points. Am I mistaken?

      The short answer to your question is maybe and maybe not. :/ The issue I have with the Weight Watchers Recipe Builder is that it’s compiled with a lot of generic nutritional data. So often, the fat, carbs, fiber and protein it’s calculating are an average of many different brands. When I calculate my points, I use the exact nutritional data from each ingredient’s label. Your version of this dish may vary in Points Plus value depending on the brands of foods you use. To get the most accurate Points value, I always recommend adding up your own to nutritional data and entering it into your Points + calculator.

      • gotcha. That makes sense. I think I just might accept your point value over mine ;-). Thank you for all your wonderful recipes!

  4. Looks tasty! Should the chicken be cooked first or just put into the crockpot raw?

    • I just made this on my stovetop, cooked the onions on their own for a few, simmered until the chicken was cooked, it was great.
