Slow Cooker Sans Tortilla Soup

I love soup season. The delicious aroma of a slow-cooked soup when I come home is one of the most delicious and comforting smells in the world. It doesn’t matter what kind of day I had, because all is right when I step through the door and my home smells of dinner.

This soup is our go-to. Spicy, scrumptious tortilla soup. Which we have coined “sans tortilla soup” since we never actually put any tortillas in it. I am not a big fan of the added tortilla chip that gets all soggy in the soup. I do love the combination of flavors, spicy kicks of chili powder, green chiles, and enchilada sauce, with smoky cumin, slow-cooked chicken, and hearty diced tomatoes. Delicious!
