If you are a fan of Chicken Tortilla Soup you have to try this recipe out. I don’t eat meat that often, but when I do it’s in this Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe. I actually pulled this out of my old blog and reworked it recently. I’ve included the options to make this dairy-free and vegan as well. Have you tried jackfruit yet? If you’re wanting to you can omit the chicken or try jackfruit instead. I’ve been subbing a lot of meat options for jackfruit lately and haven’t missed meat at all.

The beauty of this Chicken Tortilla Soup is that it’s a crock-pot recipe. I love the crock-pot recipes because it allows time for all the spices and ingredients to combine into an amazing entity of deliciousness. Plus it is healthy, fresh, and nutrient-dense. Enjoy!
