Crockpot Tortilla Soup (and a Ninja Slow Cooker Giveaway!)

Tortilla Soup.psd

I admit that for a long time I was anti-crockpot. I blame the plethora of recipes featuring cans of “cream of” soups, blocks of cream cheese, and bags of cheese. I’m all for a quick meal and even the occasional semi-homemade meal, but those types of crockpot recipes were just not jiving with my belief system. Yes, I will make fried doughnuts with bacon, but I will not eat a crockpot meal like that. I pick my poison and if it’s going to be bad for me, it’s going to be awesomely delicious. That’s just one of my rules of life.

But lately I’ve been reconsidering the crockpot. It started when I wanted to make pulled pork and realized how glorious it would be to pop it in the slow cooker and wait. I started wondering why I didn’t own a crockpot and why I never ended putting one on our wedding registry. So, it felt lie fate that a couple days after I finally admitted I may want a crockpot, I was contacted by Ninja Cooking Systems. They told me about THEIR crockpot and I was suddenly psyched I never added one to the wedding registry. This one sounded like the best yet.

What’s so good about this so-called Ninja? Well, it’s more than just a slow cooker. Much more! But starting with the whole slow cooking thing, one thing that Ninja does is sear and brown meat and vegetables. Which is basically heaven because you don’t have to sear meat and brown onions on the stove before popping them in the slow cooker. You can also deglaze sauces with this option. You can do it all in the Ninja.

Seriously, you can also steam roast and BAKE. Yes, bake. Of course, if you steam roast meat, you’ll get an even cook and cut out a whole lot of cooking time while making your meal a bit healthier. But baked goods? I haven’t tried yet, but allegedly, you can make all kinds of healthier goodness, including mini cheesecakes to flan to banana lime coconut bread. I will obviously report back when I try. You can make one-pot meals in 30 minutes, even tossing in frozen meatballs and dry pasta. It’s like this Ninja is actually… A Ninja.

This tortilla soup actually isn’t the first recipe I made in my Ninja. I randomly made a batch of mussels the first night I had this beauty in my possession. Why? Well, there was a mussels recipe in the little recipe guide and they looked glorious and I’ve never made mussels myself before. So I figured if I could find a good deal at the grocery store, I’d whip some up. Well, little did I know mussels are $3.99 for two pounds. Holy best deal on Earth. I snagged them and made mussels right when I got home. Now, I know you don’t need a crockpot to make mussels, but I’ll post about them soon, so you can see how I used them to break in my new Ninja πŸ™‚

But I’ve also been wanting to make tortilla soup for a while and when I spotted this recipe in the book, I decided to jump on it… with lots of adaptations, of course, including the addition of fresh jalapeΓ±os and elimination of the bottles of enchilada sauce. The result was a soup that I’d definitely make again!

Crock Pot Tortilla Soup (serves about 8)
Print this recipe!

  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 lb. chicken breasts
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 T minced garlic
  • 1 jalapeΓ±o, chopped (plus 1 chopped for garnish)
  • 1/4 C fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2 C low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 can black beans, undrained
  • 2 C frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 T tomato paste
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 T ground cumin
  • 1-2 ripe avocados
  • Flour tortillas
  • Canola oil
  • Shredded cheddar for topping

Tortilla Soup Ingredients.jpg

Sear chicken before beginning. I did this in my Ninja with olive oil (if you don’t have a Ninja yet, do it in a sautΓ© pan). First, add olive oil to Ninja pot and set to stovetop medium. Heat oil, season chicken with salt and pepper, and place in pot. Cook uncovered for about 5 minutes, until chicken is lightly browned on both sides.

Then you can start adding your other ingredients. This is where things got really easy. I put every ingredient from the onion all the way down to the cumin into the pot.

Tortilla Soup Veggies.jpg

And then I set it to slow cook on high for 2 hours and went away and did my regular Sunday business.

When I returned, my kitchen smelled delightful and this beauty was simmering away.

Take the chicken out of the pot and remove to cutting board. Using two forks, shred the chicken and then stir it back into the pot.

Tortilla Soup Done.jpg

When my soup was almost done, I decided to whip up some tortilla strips. I cut flour tortillas into strips.

And put them in a pot with about 1/4 inch of canola oil simmering away.

After about a minute, I removed them. And snuck a few bites in. SO awesome. I love my baked tortilla chips, but making these fried ones was so easy and they’re so delicious.

Tortilla Soup Tortilla Strips Fried.jpg

I served up my tortilla soup with the fried tortilla strips on top, along with diced avocado and jalapeΓ±o as garnish. Plus I sprinkled in a little Cabot Light Sharp Cheddar on top.

How easy was all of that?? Seriously! Answer me!

A meal that literally took minutes was done and ready to be dug into.

Tortilla Soup 1.jpg

I’d say my first crockpot meal was most definitely deemed a success. And I may officially be a convert. I still won’t be caught throwing a bunch of pre-made foods into my slow cooker, but I felt like this recipe was a good variety of some canned and fresh goods.

Tortilla Soup 3.jpg

And it was incredibly fast and easy, not requiring a whole lot of stirring or any complicated instructions. When I get a new appliance, I absolutely cannot stand when I need to read the accompanying promotional material 18 times before I can figure out how to turn it on. User friendly is the name of the game.

Tortilla Soup 9.jpg

It made for a super rich and flavorful soup with perfectly cooked chicken. I can’t get over how little time I put into a meal that packed such flavor. Tortilla soup is the new 10-minute prep meal.

The only criticism I really have about the Ninja is that the timer doesn’t buzz or make any noise when it runs out. I don’t know about you; but a timer is a bit useless to be if i have to keep checking it. But, of course, I always have my oven timer and my iPhone for that, so I’m not too heartbroken about it.

Tortilla Soup 7.jpg

While I don’t see myself becoming an every day crockpot cooker (I’m honestly not sure I could deal with ingredients like this first thing in the morning, so I won’t likely be whipping up meals in the pot before heading to work), I will most likely be using the Ninja Cooking System quite often. I’m already dreaming up the pulled pork and beef brisket I’m planning to make and will most definitely be reporting back on my findings.

  55. samantha says:

    winter is coming….so i’d obviously make white chicken chili. warms you RIGHT up.

  56. Monique says:

    Girl, you know how much I love my slow cooker. This gadget would come in handy for sure!
    Looks like the vessel is removable for wash, right? I would sear the chicken at night and place all the ingredients in the vessel, seal it and refrigerate it the night before. in the morning, i plug the sucker in and start it before i leave for work. Come home to dinner already cooked. πŸ™‚ I have heard about this baby and really really think it would make a great additon to my collection of appliances!

  57. Valerie says:

    WOW! I didn’t even know such a spectacular kitchen appliance even existed! If I got this I would probably attempt a good, hearty chili. And I’m sure my boyfriend would make his famous pulled pork!

  58. Beverly says:

    I would try my hand at roasting a whole chicken in that bad boy.

    I’ve been working on a crockpot Paella and the problem with many of the recipes is that the chicken has to be browned first (seems like lots of extra pans and work), but with this slow cooker I bet it would be a breeze!

    I have always been incredibly skeptical of slow cookers. Soups were one of my biggest failures when I first started cooking and my roommate’s crock pot is enormous, taking up the entire counter for hours and hours at a time for cream of whatever chicken. But a slow cooker that I can BAKE with? I think it would be tied between trying my hand at lentil sloppy joes and cupcakes. I’d feel a lot better about eating 3 caramel mocha cupcakes in a day if they had 1/2 the butter.

  131. Scott W says:

    Probably a corned beef. My current slow cooker is only a 3 quart and I have to cut one up to cook it in there.

    I’d make pulled pork or chicken in the ninja — our current crock pot does the job but I love that the ninja sears meat, that’s my most dreaded step when perusing crock-pot recipes (that I have to dirty a pan to brown meat first). Can’t wait to hear about the mussels!

    I have been interested in how well the Ninja cooker really works from an independent source. When I get one, I would first either do a pork roast or chicken, carrots, celery & broth (I’m pretty simple when cooking).

  195. Karen says:

    My favorite is the Taco Soup, but since this bad boy does so much I would have to try a big roast with potatoes, carrots and onions. I am dying to try the browning, and then cooking, and then making a gravy ALL IN ONE POT!!! Otherwise, pulled pork for pork tacos and BBQ would be the bomb!

    My mom makes the most amazing cheddar chowder. She makes it on the stove, but I’d like to see if I could figure out a way to make in a crockpot. I can’t think of a more delicious meal to having waiting for me at home after work!

    I’d bake my little heart out with that thing…cupcakes, pumpkin bread, & a pumpkin English muffin recipe I’ve been meaning to try.

  211. Taylor says:

    Hi! I read through and am hoping I didnt just miss it but how long do you leave the soup on for after you put the chicken back in?

  212. Sues says:

    @Taylor- Not long! You just need to stir it in and make sure it’s hot. I just looked back at the original recipe from Ninja and it says, “Using 2 forks, shred chicken, Return chicken to pot and stir. Top soup with tortillas before serving.” I hope that helps!

    I would make Shrimp Taco Soup! Pick me, pick me!
