A few weeks ago we had our good friends over for dinner to celebrate the holiday season. When I invited them over I knew that I had to find a meal that was easy to prepare on a work night but also that was gluten-free. This is a new venture for me and I wanted to make sure I did it right and boy I am glad I did. The recipe that I made was so good that we had it again for dinner last night.

2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
15 ounce canned black beans, rinsed and drained

This soup serves between 8-10 adults. It is a great meal to make on the weekend for lunch left overs. Also, what a great recipe this has been to get my kids to eat veggies and black beans! YES mom wins. I loved that with the addition of gluten-free chips and tortillas we were able to enjoy a great meal with our friends without the worry of making her sick. Accomplished and I found a great new recipe that we love!

We eat a lot of soup in the winter at our house. It is so comforting when the weather is cold. Your tortilla soup looks amazing!

Aren't crockpots just lifesavers?! I love using mine on those busy weeknights and well on the weekends too! Tortilla soup is one of my favorites and your recipe looks amazing! Can't wait to try it!

Looks like a real hearty soup my family would enjoy. My kids are not fussy about eating veggies, and I know this Chicken Tortilla soup will be requested frequently. I would probably choose to top this soup with shredded cheese. Yummy!

Your version looks super yummy. I've never made it in a crock pot. I like the idea it would be so much easier to start it and get some errands run.
Lisa Codina says
I love any recipe that is Tex-Mex inspired! I don't eat chicken but this would be fine with just veggies. Also, I'm not a huge fan of crock pots so I would just make this in my Creuset.

I was just trying to figure out what I was going to make for dinner tomorrow night since we have a basketball game. This Chicken Tortilla Soup is perfect and will save us from eating fast food. Sounds perfect for a cold day!
