    I love tortilla soup and yours looks great. I do like the chicken in there and the avocado on top. Thanks for the shout out. If you're looking for another version have you checked out Shirley from Gluten Free Easily? Here's the link http://glutenfreeeasily.com/tasty-tortilla-soup/

    This sounds like my kind of meal! Love to cook with the slow-cooker and love the ingredients. I'd probably have to add a little heat for me and my husband, but maybe just a few slices of jalapenos in each bowl. That way the kids still get a mild serving.

    I'm definitely going to try this. I use canned tomatoes all the time, but that's because I really dislike fresh tomatoes. I've heard of people putting their crock pot outside during the summer to keep the heat out of the kitchen, but I've never tried it. Maybe I will with this soup. Thanks for the recipe!

    Diane – Thanks for the link to Gluten Free Easily. I will have to drop in and check her version. :)

    Heather – I am sure you have many tricks up your sleeve for keeping the entire family happy with one meal. I love my CrockPot, too.

    Linda – So glad you like canned tomatoes too…simplicity has it's place in my life. If I had a screened-in porch I'd put my CrockPot out there.

    Jessie – Thanks! We are master jugglers, aren't we?

    Gina – Make it once and it becomes a "must!" Thanks for stopping by!!

    I love this "cool kitchen" series you've got going.

    I also love the sugar-free part. my sweet tooth is HUGE and I've been trying to cut back. I am looking forward to getting ideas from your blog.

    Oh man…we are thinking alike. I often feel like it's just too much to keep up with the insanity of life! Yes, I shop at 3 stores and sometimes 4 too! I found that ordering on Amazon really helped out with reducing the grocery store trips.

    That recipe looks easy and I love anything that gets made in the crockpot. :)

    Amy, I posted this in the comment section on my blog, but I'll add it here as well. The ingredients for the GF wraps featured on my blog do not have sugar listed. However, corn syrups solids and honey are on the ingredient list. The wraps are 31 grams of carbs for 1 tortilla. Take care.

    Brian – Thanks for the extra effort. Darn that corn syrup! It's not on my 'eat' list, nor is honey. They both make me a little crazy. Agave doesn't, though…my best guess is the impact to my blood sugar. I'm just going to have to enjoy you enjoying them. :)

    I see Diane already told you that we are on the same "wavelength." Your version of tortilla soup looks terrific. :-)

    I also found your personal story very inspiring. Sugar is more of a nemesis for me than gluten. I'll be back for more inspiration.

    Thanks,

    Shirley – Great minds think alike.

    Yes!! I agree completely. Sugar was such an issue for me for so long. I don't talk about it enough in my postings but I get so much feedback about sugar that maybe I should. Also, I eat everything I post. There's nothing here I wouldn't put in my mouth, which shows you can eat well and maintain a large weight loss over time.

    Reagan,

    So glad you can hear my 'voice.' After yesterday's class I am convinced that my writing needs some work, yet I have no desire to be overly loquacious and elitist. That's not me. (I had to look up the spelling of loquacious.)

    I will most certainly help you with your blog. I'll shoot you an e-mail with a link to the info I used to make some changes to my blog. If you want my help with anything else just let me know.

    I made this wonderful soup this weekend. I had never made Tortilla Soup before. The blend and amount of spices is perfect. I took the liberty of adding Petite French Green Beans and corn. I love the shredded chicken in this soup instead of chunks of chicken. Another winner Amy!

    Amy! I’m delighted that you linked up :). This recipe is perfect, just what the doctor ordered. I totally know what you mean about being picky when it come to choice ingredients, I have the same grocery store run going on…Makes food taste fabulous! Although sometimes the hubby helps find new new things because they just don’t care!

    I made this for soup for dinner yesterday. I’ve done many tortilla soups and this one is delicious! Along with the toppings suggested, I wound up serving it with left over short grain brown rice, pinto beans and corn tortillas. Yum. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi there! Great recipe! I made this today. I love cilantro and this was great. The only thing I will change next time is omit the cinnamon and use adobo seasoning or chili powder or something else instead. I guess I just don’t like cinnamon in savory recipes. Every time I’ve tried it, I haven’t really liked it. In this case, it really wasn’t bad, and I only put 1/16 t, so I think I’d be okay without it. But that’s personal preference. My husband LOVED it even with the cinnamon. :)

    Amy Reply:

    @Shannon, Thanks for your ideas, Shannon! I’m glad you liked the soup. I like the cinnamon because it brings out the sweetness in the tomatoes. But, not everyone has the same palate so you can always omit it and turn up the heat. Hugs!!

    I LOVE this recipe! I made it last week and I was in heaven! My husband loved it too; it was one of his favorite dishes that I have made in a while- so thank you! Definitely making it again soon. I loved the cinnamon in it. My only changes were that I didn’t have cilantro, so I omitted it, and I added some black beans to it just because. YUM!

    @Rochelle, Black beans would be fabulous!! Thanks so much for letting me know you liked this – and, yes, it’s a hubby pleaser. Joe loves it too! Hugs, Rochelle!

    This soup was fabulous and easy! My 5 yo daughter helped put it all together. For a different twist, I put a whole tortilla in the bowl and served the soup inside it. My husband said he felt like he was at a restaurant. Thanks for the inspiration!
