Healthy Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe!

Chicken Tortilla Soup in the crock pot for dinner tonight! So easy! If you are looking for a quick, no hassle, HEALTHY meal for dinner…try this recipe I got from my friend at Weight Watchers. It’s so yummy!

Healthy, easy, and yummy recipes are possible EVEN if you are on a budget!! I got all these ingredients while they were on sale and since all of it can be stockpiled (because they are either canned goods or can be frozen) this meal only cost me $4.00 to make and I’ll have enough for 2 meals for a family of 4. Remember…planning ahead is the  BEST way to save! Cheese and chicken freeze well and are great to have on hand for quick and easy meals! You DO NOT have to sacrifice healthy eating just because you are on a budget! I live on a budget everyday and I am a HUGE avid healty, clean eater!

Hi Denise,

No, actually I put the 4 1/2 breasts I had frozen in one chunk in the crock pot. The meat was super tender when it was done cooking!

Great question!

Have a great day!

Does the chicken need to be thawed before putting it in the crockpot?
