I made this on the stove as my slow cooker was already occupied and otherwise followed directions as given. My husband loved the soup; I thought it was a little bland and needed a little more flavor. I might try using low sodium chicken broth next time to give it a little body. It was tasty, however, and so I definitely will make it again. I cut flour tortillas into thin strips and baked them in the oven about 10 minutes until they were just starting to get a little brown and were crispy. They are a healthier topping than tortilla chips or corn chips.
