Crockpot Naked Tortilla Soup

Make this easy crockpot chicken tortilla soup. Gluten free, paleo, whole 30 compliant. Easy to make in the crockpot, slow cooker or insta pot.

I love Tortilla soup. It’s one of my most favorite things. But I hate black beans that seem to be in every single recipe ( i know, kill me) and it always takes me so long to make a tortilla soup. I love soup. But I hate it out the can.

C-Dub and I were doing whole 30 last month ( a big fail) and I wanted soup. I NEEDED Chicken tortilla soup…without the tortillas and without a whole lot of other things that make Whole 30 Whole 30.  And my naked tortilla soup was born.

I literally threw things into the pot and made this soup.

Easy crockpot naked tortilla soup


The good thing about this soup is that even though it’s whole 30 compliant and Paelo , and gluten free it’s GOOD and we are still eating it.

Oh and did I forget to mention that I made this in the crock pot on a weeknight?


This recipe is so easy to make you literally dump all the ingredients in the crock pot and set it based on how much time you have. For me that meant since I remembered I needed to cook dinner at 1, it went in for 4 hours on high.

By the time Pookah got done with homework and Cdub got home from work, dinner was ready!


Of course, I’m sharing the recipe!

    This sounds like a great soup to enjoy in the cooler months, even if you aren’t following Whole 30! I’d eat it anyways. I think I actually picked out the tortilla strips the last time I had this soup.

    Do I have a crockpot? Let me check, if not I am buying one just to make this asap. Tortilla soup is one of the only soups my kids love.

    I have never used chicken thighs before in a recipe, but I’ve heard that it produce more flavorful entrees. I’m too hard-headed…I want to make this, but with boneless skinless chicken breast.

    Yes, more crockpot recipes. I’ve been looking for a healthier version of tortilla soup as it’s one of my favorite comfort foods. You don’t need tortilla strips and cheese to make soup taste delicious.

    Tortilla soup is so good. I usually like to load mine with cheese, but this looks like a tasty version I can make without all the extra calories. And I can still get the cheese I crave just as a garnish.
