Crockpot Tortilla Soup. Healthy, spicy, fresh, and easy to make! Small Town Girl Blog

This is one of my favorite crock pot recipes. It’s based on a Guatemalan recipe I learned while working at a little cafe in Bellingham. The owner was from Guatemala as where the coffee beans and several soup recipes. This one is the best! It’s spicy, hearty, healthy, and ridiculously easy to make. I love making this in the fall when I have tomatoes, jalapenos and cilatro fresh from the garden 🙂
