Copycat Chick-fil-A Chicken Tortilla Soup

This Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup reminded me a lot of Chick-fil-A’s chicken tortilla soup, which is my favorite. I wait patiently every year for them to add it to the menu. I am SO excited to have a copycat recipe and be able to eat this soup anytime I want! This is super simple and tastes great! We ate this for dinner and lunch for the rest of the week. It tastes just as good, if not better, reheated.

How to Make Chicken Tortilla Soup

This soup is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. Simply place boneless skinless chicken breast in the bottom of the slow cooker. Add black beans, corn, Rotel tomatoes, chicken broth, navy beans, taco seasoning, whole kernel corn, and cream of chicken soup. Cover and cook on LOW. Shred chicken with two forks and return to the crock pot. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh cilantro and tortilla strips.

  1. Made this last night. I already had cooked chicken in the freezer so made it on the stove top. Delicious, best taco or tortilla soup I have made. This is a keeper for sure. Had another bowl for lunch today.
