Slow Cooker Vegan Creamy Tortilla Soup

Slow Cooker Vegan Creamy Tortilla Soup- a hearty and delicious plant-based take on Tortilla Soup that takes minutes to prep!

Slow Cooker Vegan Creamy Tortilla Soup

This soup is one of my cold-weather favorites! The addition of coconut milk really separates this from traditional tortilla soup. It has a wonderful creamy texture that enhances the flavors. I added red lentils to kick the protein up a notch. Baked, sliced corn tortillas add just the right amount of crisp.

I’m not a fan of anything spicy, but if you are, you can add 1 jalapeño and/or 1/2 teaspoon chili powder to the recipe.
