Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup (EASY RECIPE)

 Okay, so admittedly there are no tortillas in this soup. But that is truly the name of it. Call it whatever the heck you feel like calling it.

3 frozen chicken breasts
2 (15 oz) cans of blackbeans, drained
2 (15 oz) cans of stewed tomatoes
1 cup medium salsa (I used Pace Picante, but I bet it  would be awesome with fresher stuff)
1 can corn, drained
1 can tomato sauce
I also rinsed the corn and beans to get a little less sodium in there. You won't miss it at all.

Throw everything into your crockpot and cook on low until chicken is done (recipe says 8 hours, but my crockpot cooks fast)
When chicken is done, scoop it out and shred it.
(Tip: Put it in a medium bowl and mix with a hand mixer. Its shredded perfect in literally 5 seconds)

 Put shredded chicken back in the crockpot for a half hour or so.
Serves.....a whole lotta people. I would guess 6 -7 adults.

Top with Tortilla (there they are) chips, cheese and sour cream.
