Crockpot Healthy Tortilla Soup

Slow Cooker Light Tortilla Soup Healthy Crockpot Tortilla Soup Recipe

What better way to kick off September than with a flavor packed, healthy soup? I’m a crockpot advocate year round, but especially come fall/winter. I just picked up this one that automatically switches to the warming setting once the cooking timer is up and while that may not seem like a big deal, it helps so much for me! No more running back home to switch the settings manually. This is adulthood ladies. We topped our bowls of soup with cheese and avocado, naturally. The cheese melting is pure goodness.

    I love tortilla soup but the calories and sodium can definitely add up, so I appreciate this lightened version (and I love any excuse to use my crockpot!).

    yum! Put a crockpot on our registry since I’ve always meant to try it out and never have! I have a slight unreasonable fear of leaving it on all day!
