Chicken-Corn Tortilla Soup
Using bone-in chicken thighs in this soup ensures the meat stays moist over the long cooking time. Not only are chicken thighs inherently juicier than breast meat, but cooking chicken on the bone also helps it stay succulent.
Tip: Anaheim chiles are bright, fresh and peppery. They bring a little bit of heat to the table, but not too much. If you want more fire, use jalapeños instead.
To make ahead: Chop onion, peppers and garlic and combine. Combine broth, water, tomatoes and spices. Refrigerate in separate containers for up to 1 day.
Equipment: 5- to 6-quart slow cooker
