I made this soup for the first time a few years ago, and Blake loved it, so I make chicken Tostitos soup quite often in the cold (6) months here.

How to Make Chicken Tostito Soup

I always try to have different colored peppers in my freezer, so, I dice orange and red peppers, as well as one medium onion.

Chicken Tostito Soup

I make this in my large slow cooker. Starting with 3-4 chicken breasts in the bottom. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of chili powder and garlic powder, and 2 tsp of cumin over the chicken breast.

You can also bake your chicken first with the seasonings on it. Instead of laying the baked chicken in your slower, first shred it, as we will be shredding it later. Then continue on with the next steps.

Add a full jar of salsa, which is roughly two cups. I make it with Roasted Red Pepper now, it has a great taste going with the peppers that you added, it is medium so it has a little heat, making you even warmer inside. Fill the jar halfway with chicken stock, put the lid on, give it a shake and add it to your slow cooker.

Add either a cup of frozen corn or a can of corn.

Add two handfuls of Tostitos. I normally use the small rounds but these taste great too. I don’t break them up, just stir them in. They will break down as it’s cooking, thickening it up.

About 30 minutes before serving, take out the chicken, shred it, and then replace it in the slow cooker, stirring. If you would like your soup thicker, more stew-like, add another handful or two of Tostitos.

How delicious does this look? Looks pretty damn good, doesn’t it? Well, it tastes even better!
