Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

I love my slow cooker! You put everything in the pot in the morning and your house smells wonderful all day. These meals are especially great when everyone wants to eat at different times. This soup is the perfect spicy dinner to warm you up now that the days are getting cooler. I made a double batch and froze a couple 1 quart freezer bags for when someone feels a cold coming on.
 
Ingredients:
1 lb uncooked chicken breasts
2 15oz canned corn
2 10oz Rotel diced tomatoes with peppers
6 cups lower sodium chicken broth

1 1/2 T onion powder
1 T minced garlic
1/2 T chili powder
Monterey Jack
crushed tortilla chips or bagged tortilla strips

You can put the first 7 items into the slow cooker directly but I like putting the 2 cans of Rotel in the blender with some of the chicken broth to puree and make a smoother soup. Cook on low 7-8 hours. Remove chicken breasts and shred with two forks on a cutting board then return to pot. Ladle soup into bowls and top with cheese and tortilla strips.
