slow cooker tortilla soup

I bought this cookbook on a whim after seeing it on pinterest. I thought some healthier slow-cooker recipes could be beneficial, especially going into the winter months.

The first recipe I made was the tortilla-less chicken soup and we loved it. I already had cooked chicken, so we just made this on the stove top in about 15-20 minutes. Very easy and great results – the leftovers did not last long!

Paleo Slow-Cooker Tortilla-less Chicken Soup


  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts*
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 16 oz chicken broth
  • 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 14.5 oz can of enchilada sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp each cumin & chili powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • optional: 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • *you can substitute 1 rotisserie chicken


  1. In a medium pan or dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat and saute the carrots, onion, and celery until translucent (about 3-5 minutes).
  2. Place the sauteed veggies in the slow cooker.
  3. Top with the chicken breasts (*if using pre-cooked chicken, do not add to the slow cooker until the last 20 minutes of cooking).
  4. Add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.


If you use pre-cooked chicken, you can make this on the stove top in 15-20 minutes.
