Chickadilla Soup or Chicken Tortilla Soup

I had no idea what to throw together for dinner tonight and didn't want to go to the store AGAIN so I remembered a recipe I recently saved from a magazine.
It is a slow cooker soup and I had almost all the ingredients on hand in my pantry or fridge. I did make one substitution so we'll see how it turns out. I used Rotel zesty tomato and green chili sauce instead of the mild enchilada sauce the recipe had in its ingredient list.

The recipe was in a Kashi ad so I checked out their website www.kashi.com/family and they have a great recipe section!
