I am making this now as we speak...or should I say, as I type :) anyway, I just tried a piece of chicken from mine and OMG...so absolutely delicious!! The only thing with this recipe however, is it could just as easily be made in a large pot on the stove and be finished in an hour or two as opposed to the 6-8 hours in the slow cooker. I followed the recipe ALMOST exactly (but I may cook a bit of rice and add it to my bowl tomorrow). The few, small changes I made are as follows: using about 1-1/2 pounds of raw chicken breast, instead of using cooked, shredded chicken, I cut it into chunks (I'm not crazy about shredded chicken). I put it in water along with 4 bullion cubes instead of using canned chicken broth. I also made the enchilada sauce using the ten minute enchilada sauce recipe from this site (I like to make whatever I can from scratch instead of buying canned stuff) and chopped up 2 green chili peppers as opposed to can. I also omitted the salt. Other than those minor changes, I followed the recipe exactly. Well really, besides using already cooked chicken, I followed it exactly anyway, just with fresh stuff instead of canned. The only times I've ever had chicken tortilla soup were at Applebees (it comes frozen in a bag and it's good but nothing compared to real tortilla soup) and from a Mexican restaurant called Plaza Azteca. There, they make it per order (at least that's what I was told by a server once) and it was really good. This tastes better than that one but is
