We have snow that is supposed to hit, and I wanted to have a soup that will take the chill off after a cold day. My husband works in the oil field so he spends his days outdoors.

How Do I Thicken  Chicken Tortilla Soup

If you want more of a creamy consistency, just follow this slurry recipe to add a thickness. Take 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to 1/2 cup of cold water. Stir and then about 30 minutes before serving soup pour it into the slow cooker and stir around. The hot soup will help counteract the cornstarch and cold water and thicken the soup.

If you want to add in cheese while it cooks, I recommend Velveeta cheese. If you use shredded cheese during the cooking, it won’t blend well and can be a little clumpy. I have used Velveeta in the past and it works really good. Or just top with cheese like I did here and still enjoy the cheesy goodness. easy slow cooker recipes

Where Did Chicken Tortilla Soup Come From

A classic chicken tortilla soup was first created in Mexico City! It was packed with chicken broth, onions, garlic, chiles, roasted tomatoes, and tortillas. They would cut the tortillas and fry them! This was back in 2005. I am so glad they created this soup, because it is one of my favorites!
