Crockpot Crushed Tomato and Chicken Soup

This was supposed to be Chicken Tortilla Soup.

Then I added my own spin on it and was too hungry to bother with the fried corn tortilla pieces.

I ate two bowls of this before dinner was even ready. Have I mentioned I am so ready for fall?

This soup is fantastic  and will be perfect for the cooler months. Add it to your weekly menu!

soup recipes


  • 32 oz box chicken broth
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can of Rotel
  • 1 can of water (use Rotel can)
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced  (or a couple spoonfuls of the jarred stuff)
  • 1/8  t  chili powder
  • 1/2  t  cumin
  • 1 pkg Sazon (Latin seasoning that comes in a box on the Latin aisle made by Goya)
  • 1  t  Adobo (Latin seasoning salt on the Latin aisle made by Goya)
  • shredded cheese for topping, optional

Pour the chicken broth into the crockpot.

Add the can of crushed tomatoes.

Add the can of Rotel.

Use the empty Rotel can to add one can of water.

Add one packet of Sazon.

We love this stuff and use it in all of our Puerto Rican dishes!

Add the Adobo.

This is simply a Latin seasoning salt that goes great in many recipes!

Add the chili powder.

Add the cumin.

And the garlic.

Finally, add the chicken.

(This is simply a rotisserie chicken that I cut up. I used 2 cups of the chicken for this recipe and froze the other two cups for a later recipe.)

Pop the lid on the crockpot and cook this on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.

Look at how yummy this is.

Try to refrain from eating a bowl before it is ready.

Make that two bowls.

So good!

Serve it up and top with shredded cheese!

I was inspired by this Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe over on Eat at Home.

    If we were neighbors I would have been over eating this with you! lol We love mexican/tex-mex food. I’ve never used Sazon or Adobo seasonings. I”m familiar with the Brand Goya & names but this isn’t something my two local stores carry. I’ll have to check around our area for these. Do you know if MSG is in either one? I try and stay away from seasonings with that ingredient.

    Hi Crystal,
    It is sure that time of the year to get our Slow Cookers and Crock Pot’s out. This is a great recipe and I love the addition of the Rol Tel to kick it up a little. Hope you are having a great weekend and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
