This chicken tortilla soup is comforting, tangy and easy to make if you have a slow cooker or crock pot. Although it is not necessarily authentic, it is delicious and perfect if you will be out of the house for a few hours.
Feel free to use whatever chicken parts you have, I used thighs because I had them. You could also definitely make it without a slow cooker or stretch the recipe out with some white beans.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe(serves 6)
Combine all ingredients up to and including the oregano in the slow cooker or crock pot and stir. Add chicken and water and stir. Place and low and cook for 6-8 hours (or 3-4 on high, I used a combination.) Remove chicken to a plate. Stir in corn. Shred chicken and stir back into the soup. Taste and correct for seasoning. Cook for another 10 minutes. Serve hot with optional toppings.
