Chicken Tortilla soup.

Last night, I was craving soup. It had been cold ALL day, so I wanted to make something warm and yummy. I usually make the same soups over and over again, but I wanted to make something new. I have always loved chicken tortilla soup! I don't care for the chicken tortilla soups from mexican restaurants, so i didn't really want anything with avocado, etc. I wanted a rich and hearty soup, but nothing with too many calories. Here is what I found: Chicken Tortilla Recipe. It's a great website and super simple! She actually used a slow cooker, but I decided last minute that I wanted to make it, so I just threw everything in a pot and let it cook! First, I boiled my chicken. I added different seasonings and let it boil until it was done. After I shredded the chicken, I threw the corn, chicken, chick stock, onion, and tomatoes in the pot. It calls for green pepper, but S does not like bell peppers, so I adjusted the recipe a little. I know it does not call for adobe peppers and green chilies, but we like spicy around here, so instead of using a green bell pepper, I used the chipotle peppers in adobe sauce and a 4oz can of green chilies. It was perfect! It also does not call for whipping cream, but I went ahead and added a small pinch of it. It was just the right amount! Last, I poured the soup into the bowls, topped with tortilla strips, and threw some monterey jack cheese on top! It was delicious! I totally suggest this soup recipe! If you want, you can totally prepare it in the slow cooker, but if you are like me and always wait till the last minute to prepare something, just throw it all in a pot and you're done! :) Enjoy!!

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.

A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've
done a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for me on

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to inform the reality on
the other hand I'll certainly come again again.
