Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yummy, yummy, YUMMY! This literally took me 5 minutes to prepare...and the crock pot did the rest! It's not exactly an "eat and prepare in 30 minutes", but I still labeled this as a 30-minute meal because it is so easy! The chicken is so tender, it literally falls apart when you put a fork in it. Our favorite thing about this was the tortillas. We bought uncooked tortillas, cut them into strips, and baked them at 350 for a couple of minutes. They stayed crispy for just long enough once you put them in the soup, and added a great taste to it. Even if you don't have uncooked tortillas, just using chips, etc. this soup is so flavorful and yummy!

4 Large Chicken Breasts (frozen)
1 clove garlic (or 2 tsp. garlic powder)
1/2 onion
2 Tbs. Butter
2 14 oz. cans chicken broth
1 pkg. chicken gravy
1 14 oz. can tomatoes
1 cup salsa
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. salt

To serve:
sour cream
tortilla strips

Combine all ingredients and cook in crock pot for 7-10 hours on low, or 4 hours on high. Take chicken out and shred, then put back into soup prior to serving. Serve with sour cream, tortilla strips, and cheese.

Where do you find the uncooked tortillas at?

Jamie-I have gotten lucky a couple of times at nice grocery stores, never at wal mart or target. But, I always buy them at costco. They are delicious!
