  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 3 Roma tomatoes diced

  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1 cup chicken *shredded

  • Stir the heavy whipping cream into your soup mixture. 
  • Next, add and stir in the salt and pepper.
  • Place the lid on your slow cooker, and cook the soup on high for about 4 hours, or on low for about 6 to 8 hours.
