Every year that we lived in Arizona, October just about killed me.

Autumn has always been my favorite season, so it’s no surprise I look forward to it at all year, but in Arizona where, the summer stretches on into early November, I just was DYING for a real fall.

Additionally, school started in July in Arizona, so by the time school has been rolling along for a month, you really feel like there should be pumpkins and fall leaves and a cool breeze.

And when it’s still regularly hitting 108 degrees all through October? You just start to get very desperate.

I started making this slow cooker chicken tortilla soup our second year in Arizona when I just needed to pretend it was fall for at least a few hours.

Now, even knowing that true cold is just around the corner, I’m soaking up every second of a legit autumn, from the spectacular autumn leaves to the crisp air and, of course, a good crockpot tortilla soup.

Consider this delicious and ridiculously easy crockpot recipe my official love letter to fall, whether it’s 100 degrees or 30 degrees outside.
