I crave this soup year around but it is absolutely the best when I use the tomatillos right out of the garden! The recipe was lost for several years so when I found it I had to get it recorded so I would not be without it again! The plants are looking good so I am getting ready to make the soup soon!

In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients except for chips and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or high for 3 1/2 hours.
