This chicken tortilla soup is comforting, tangy and easy to make if you have a slow cooker or crock pot. Although it is not necessarily authentic, it is delicious and perfect if you will be out of the house for a few hours. Feel free to use whatever chicken parts you have, I used thighs because I had them. You could also definitely make it without a slow cooker or stretch the recipe out with some white beans.

Optional toppings: chopped green onion minced fresh cilantro grated cheddar cheese sour cream or plain yogourt corn tortilla strips. (Chop up tortilla spray with Pam, toss and bake at 400F for a few minutes)
