When it comes to Michigan winters, the evenings seem super short. Whether it’s because it’s already dark when we arrive home work or just the usual single digit temps, I feel like our time as a family is especially limited at night. When it’s that time of the year, the last thing I want to do is spend an hour cooking dinner! I depend on easy, quick, and filling meals instead. The easiest & tastiest one I’ve made this winter is this yummy tortilla soup recipe!

This easy slow cooker tortilla soup is perfect for a cold winter evening.


For this recipe, I made it super easy by picking up a pack of Spicy Tortilla Soup Mix from Cost Plus World Market. While I was there, I picked up a few other yummy items to make the soup an entire dinner.

If you’ve never used their soup mixes before, I highly recommend them! They are such a quick way to start dinner and it saves our family so much time in prepping ingredients!

I added in black beans, corn, and a pound of chicken. The fifth ingredient in the tortilla soup recipe is chicken broth. In most recipes that call for water, I’ll substitute in chicken broth to give a richer flavor. If you’d prefer a less broth-y soup, you could definitely add in some pasta and grains, too!

Do I sound like a cook? Nope, just someone who has learned a few way to make semi homemade taste amazing.

Right before serving, I shredded the chicken right in the slow cooker. Since it had been cooking for all day, the meat shredded quickly.

When it was dinner time, the only work I needed to do was ladle out the soup into our bowls.  To serve with dinner, I set out some freshly grated cheddar cheese, avocado, sour cream, and crispy chips & salsa.

Don’t you love these cute bowls and towels? I picked them up while shopping, too. White dinnerware is my favorite since it makes just about any dinner I make look good. And lord knows I need all the help I can get these days. 🙂


The best part to this dinner? The kids asked for seconds! I am always thrilled when they are willing to try something new and love it.
