Crock-Pot Chicken Tortillas (also with a low-fat version)
After making this it will become one of your favorite crock-pot recipes. The low-fat version is just as delicious.
1- 3 pound chicken fryer, whole
2 carrots, sliced
2 onions, sliced
2 celery stalks whole, sliced
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp coarse black pepper
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tsp basil
1 10 ounce can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup tomatoes and chilies (canned or fresh)
2 Tbs. quick tapioca
7 tortillas, broken into pieces
1 medium onion
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Put carrots, onions, and celery in the crock-pot. Add the chicken, whole. Put in salt, pepper, and chicken broth. Sprinkle basil on top. Cover and cook until done. If you cook on low, cook for about 7 to 10 hours. If you cook on high you will need to add about 1/2 cup of water and cook for about 2.5 - 3.5 hours. When done, remove chicken and vegetables.
Put vegetables in a bowl. Cover and place in refrigerator. These can be used as a side dish.
Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Mix well with soup, tomatoes, chilies, and tapioca. Line the bottom of the crock-pot with tortilla pieces. Add about 1/3 of the chicken soup mixture. Sprinkle with onion and cheese. Repeat the layers of tortillas, chicken soup mixture, onions and cheese. You should have 3 layers. Cover and cook on low for about 6-8 hours. If using high cook for 3 hours.
