DG Clover Valley Crock Pot Recipe Challenge: Chicken Tortilla Soup

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


The crock pot can be like your best friend when it comes to creating easy, homecooked meals. It is super easy to use; generally you just throw everything together with very little prep, and it's very easy to make a meal out of just about anything you have in your pantry.  And if you live near a Dollar General, you can get all your crock pot ingredients in one place and save a lot of money at the same time!

I love using the crock pot to make soups and stews, so when I was asked to join the DG Clover Valley Crock Pot Recipe Challenged, I knew I wanted to make a soup.  I decided to make my Chicken Tortilla Soup, because it's great recipe for the winter time.  It's comfort food, and it's also a little spicy.  

My recipe is super easy, and I was able to get all the can goods in the Clover Valley brand available at Dollar General. Hope you will try the recipe!


Recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup:


2 Cans Clover Valley Chunk Chicken

1 Can Clover Valley Whole Kernel Corn (drained)

1 Can Clover Valley Black Beans (drained)

3 Teaspoons Chili Power (add more if desired)

Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Fritos or Tortilla Chips

Sour Cream

Directions: Drain one can of black beans and one can of whole kernel corn. Pour in to crock pot.

Add canned chicken. Do NOT drain the chicken, as the juice will serve as the broth for your soup. Use a spoon or fork to break up any large chunks of chicken, or if desired, break up the chicken before adding to the crock pot.

Add chili powder. Stir all ingredients. Add additional chili powder if you'd like an extra spicy soup. Heat crock pot on low for a couple of hours or on high for about an hour or until heated through. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

Serve over Fritos or tortilla chips. Top with cheese and sour cream if desired.

Not spicy enough for you?  Check your local Dollar General for canned tomatoes, peppers, and other ingredients, to make this recipe your own.
