Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Variation:
Some people rather cook their chicken before putting it into the crock pot, so that they can cut it into cubes.

You can use green enchilada sauce instead of red. It’s really a matter of preference. If you are using the green sauce, you can skip the chili powder.

I also used canned whole kernel corn once, but put it in at toward the end of cooking so the corn wouldn’t be too mushy--it worked fine.

Also, you can make your own tortilla strips, but it's really just a matter of preference and ease. I prefer to use store bought chips.

My father has Type II diabetes and says that this soup, when served for dinner, doesn't make his sugar whack out.
