    This was really good soup! But it was way too spicy! I had to mix some white rice into it after cooking to make it so we could eat it. Any advice on how to tone it down without changing it too much? I’m not sure if it was the rotel or the salsa verde that made it so hot.

  6. I haven’t done much slow cooker cooking because of raw chicken… I was reading some of your other recipes too and want to give some of them a try. Just to clarify, I put raw chicken in the crock pot for all the recipes, even with the other ingredients and it’s fine? -Crock pot newbie!

  7. I love anything close to Tortilla Chicken Soup. This recipe looks great. Pinning!

    This recipe was AMAZING. It smelled and tasted sooooo good!! I dropped a small spoonful of sour cream on mine and my hubby sprinkled some cheese on his. I’m a bit of a tortilla chip addict, so I ate some of it with a spoon and scooped up some of the chicken with chips and ate it that way :)

  9. LOVED this! We also added some shredded cheese, avacado and sour cream and a bit of cilantro before serving.
