Crock Pot Tortilla Soup

Last night I made one of my absolute favorite crock pot recipes, tortilla soup. I love this recipe not only because it is so delicious, but also because I almost always have these ingredients in my pantry and its very easy to throw together. No surprise, this recipe is also from my Southern Living Slow Cooker cookbook. The soup definitely looks better garnished but tonight, we were hungry and I was in a rush to take the picture!
