Gluten Free Chicken Tortilla Soup (Crockpot)
This is a crockpot recipe, because why not. I'm sure you can cook it on the stove too, if you had to...I have no directions for that though...
Recently becoming Gluten Free has been a learning experience to scan labels and ask a thousand questions. Making more meals at home these days, I was desperate to find a soup since (hello) it's soup season and going out to restaurants now is more of a hassle than a pleasure.
Anyway, I wont be one of those annoyingly long recipe blogs that scrolls for hours and hours before giving you the recipe. Also, bonus - I linked the exact items I used - which have already been vetted and researched to be GF.
2 Chicken Breasts - halved
1 Small Can Tomato Sauce
1 Can Petite Diced Tomatoes
2 Cans Diced Hatch Green Chiles
1 Can Corn
32oz Chicken Broth
4 Minced Garlic Cloves
1 Sweet Yellow Onion - diced
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Pepper
Add everything to the crockpot and cook on low for 5-6 hours (or on high for 3). Remove chicken breasts from crockpot and shred with forks. Place back into the crock pot.
To thicken soup at this stage:
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1 Cup Cold Water
Add 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch to 1 Cup Cold Water and whisk until smooth (no lumps). Slowly add to crockpot - stirring to mix thoroughly. Cook on same level for 1 hour.
Serve with Sliced Avocado, Lime Wedges, Corn Chips, and Cheese (optional)
