A Month of Frugal Recipes Day 2: Chicken Tortilla Soup

This is one of my favorite “from the stockpile” recipes.  It’s a bit spicy on it’s own for my kids, but once we add some sour cream, cheese, and chips, they love it!

3 cans chicken broth (100% FF)
3 cans cream of chicken soup (98% FF)
3-4 chicken breasts
1 can Rotel
Mrs. Dash original seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock pot. Add Mrs. Dash’s seasoning to taste. Add broth and cream of chicken soup, and Rotel. Cook on low 6-8 hours. Shred chicken in crock pot.  You can freeze the leftovers, too!

To serve: (if frozen)

Defrost in refrigerator. Reheat on stove. Serve and top individual bowls with desired toppings (tomatoes, green onions, avocadoes/guacamole, cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream, etc.)

WW points =  3 per serving – this makes a TON of soup (at least 8 servings for my family), the 3 points, of course, does not include any “toppings” such as cheese, sour cream, and chips!

    This sounds delicious!

    Do you just freeze this inside freezer bags? I don't have much experience freezing meals! 🙂

    Yep ~ you can just freeze it in regular freezer bags! 🙂 I have also frozen it in the Ziploc containers. It makes a lot of soup, so we usually have enough to eat that night and then I can usually freeze half, too.

  3. I've got this in the crockpot right now. Can't wait to try it!
