Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Chicken Tortilla Soup may be one of my husband's FAVORITE meals.  Any time I ask him what he is craving, you can bet he is going to say this (and he's not a soup person, so that says a lot).  I have a traditional stove top version of this recipe I will link [HERE], but the other day I wanted to try and make this more of a dump and go crockpot version and WOW was it delicious!  

A bowl of the finished Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe topped with tortilla strips, sour cream, and cheese with the title above.
