Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

This soup is a classic soup we enjoy every fall/winter. 
Pre-cooked soup

It's hearty, easy to prepare, and delicious! 

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup (recipe adapted from All Recipes)
Makes 8 servings

1 pound chicken, cooked and shredded
1 15 oz can whole peeled tomatoes, mashed
1 10 oz can enchilada sauce
1 can drained black beans
1 medium onion, chopped
1 4oz can shopped green chile peppers
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp cajun pepper
2 cups water
1 14.5 oz can chicken broth
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 10oz package frozen corn
1 bay leaf
*We've added 1 can of garbanzo beans to some batches, they're a great addition

Place chicken, tomatoes, enchilada sauce, onion, green chiles, and garlic into slow cooker. Pour in water and chicken broth, and season with cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, cajun pepper, and bay leaf. Stir in corn. Cover, and cook on low setting for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. When ready to eat, sprinkle broken tortilla chips on top of the soup if desired.

These photos are from my most recent batch - they're on my phone in bad lighting so look a bit weird. But trust me, this soup is delicious. 

I've also been having fun with Instagram and trying out the camera on my new iPhone!

 Pearls. Some of my faves. 

 We've seen a few of these dreary cloudy days lately..

I'm still loving the Bon Iver Pandora station - I listen to it when I get home from work.

I've been having fun adding some fall inspiration around our home - I'll share them soon. I'm also excited that a very good friend is coming to visit this weekend! She called me just last week and came up with this plan to visit and I was thrilled. I don't get to see nearly enough of my friends these days! Just a note too that if you're looking for a house in Des Moines, I know of a great place for sale! Check it out, here is the website with details:

Happy Mid-week! We're on the downhill slide. Here's today's Pinspiration:
