Last week was cold and rainy in Los Angeles and the perfect time to pull out my crock pot (as mentioned here) for a season filled with homemade soups, chili, and other comfort foods. I started with this recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup that proved simple, hearty, and full of flavor. I altered the recipe a little by putting the frozen chicken breasts directly into the soup, then shredding them before serving. I added celery and red peppers and we topped it with cheddar cheese, sour cream, and multi grain tortilla chips (instead of making my own). This will definitely be a regular in our dinner rotation during the upcoming months. What are your favorite slow cooker recipes?
