Slow-Cooker Pork Tortilla Chip Soup

Not your mama's slow cooker pork tortilla chip soup. Whatever that means.

Ingredients

2
tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2
pound pork tenderloin, trimmed of excess fat and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1
white onion, diced
3
cloves garlic, minced
2
teaspoon chili powder
2
tablespoons cumin
1
(14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes with green pepper
1
(4 oz) can Old El Paso™ diced green chiles
4
cups chicken broth
1
cup frozen corn
1
cup crushed tortilla chips
1
cup chopped cilantro (for garnish)
1
jalapeño, diced (for garnish)
2
cups (or less) shredded cheddar cheese (for garnish)
1
pinch coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

  • 1 Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high. Add the pork, season with a pinch of salt and sear on all sides, until browned. It won't be cooked through, but that's okay. Remove meat and set aside.
  • 2 Back in the pan, add the onions; sauté until they start to soften, 5 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin and chili powder, and sauté another minute.
  • 3 Transfer onion mixture and pork to a slow cooker. Add the tomatoes through the tortilla chips. Toss in a small pinch of salt and pepper. Cook on high for 4 hours.
  • 4 Ladle the soup and serve garnished with cilantro, cheese and fresh jalapeno slices.

Slow Cooker Pork Tortilla Chip Soup

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

Leeeeet's talk about the slow cooker.


Everyone agrees. We all love it. It's our BFF. It hung the moon. Saved the day. All that. And it's true! So I guess we don't really need to talk about it then, huh?

In that case, let's talk about what we could put IN the slow cooker that will make ya beam. See stars. Fall in lurve. Reach for new dreams. All that.

Well, A: It's a Mexican-style soup. The end.
B: With pork
C: And veggies. And tortilla chips.
D: And a LOT of peppery hotness that make your face rain. In the good way.
E: I don't have an E, actually. Want me to just start? Okay.

The Slow Cooker Pork Tortilla Chip Soup!

 

Ingredients for Slow Cooker Pork Tortilla Chip Soup

Grab some pork, corn, Old El Paso diced green chiles, tomatoes, chips, cilantro, broth, an onion, some garlic and spices!

 

Now, let me just stop already and tell you something I should have done. But didn't. But should have. And you should too. But you don't have to. I don't want to be bossy.

Okay, before you sauté these veggies, get your pork chunks nice and seared in the pan. They won't be cooked all the way through, but that's okay. Just a nice sear all over to lock in that flava. I forgot because my hair was on fire.

 

Sautéing veggies and spices

Okay now, get your veggies all sautéed up with the spices. Oh mama.

 

Most ingredients in pot, with chips on top

Now, transfer it, along with the pork and everything else (sans cilantro, cheese and fresh jalapeno!) into the slow cooker. I was going to show you everything in the pot, but once I poured the broth in, everything went bye-bye.

 

Spooning up ingredients that sunk to the bottom

Okay, here's my spoon trying to show you the goods underneath. Sorry.

 

Slow Cooker Pork Tortilla Chip Soup, ready to eat

And theeeen, after about four hours of falling in love, this is what ya get! A yummy, spicy soup dolloped with cheese and sour cream and cilantro and more jalapenos. Ugh, so good.
