It's also the time where we can dust off our slow cookers, throw in a bunch of satisfying ingredients and slow cook to our heart's content.
This slow cooker chicken tortilla soup is perfect for when you want a warming, hearty meal that's packed with flavour. Using chicken, black beans, veggies, Mexican spices and cheese as the base, the stew is then topped with crispy tortilla chips, sour cream, avocado and fresh herbs.
To bulk out this meal even more (making it perfect for leftovers), serve with brown rice.
