Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

It is officially hour 9 of the snowstorm hitting Boston today, and based on my view from my warm, 4th floor apartment, it looks as if a foot or more has collected on my poor car below. Luckily, we are well prepared to wait things out with ample groceries and our trusty crock pot!

I love tortilla soup, and with this cold weather it is the perfect comfort. After many, many attempts, I found my perfect balance. This recipe is perfect, because you can throw everything in the crock pot, let it sit, and go about your day while your delicious dinner cooks!
