The first thing I did when I came home from work was check the mail box, and I was happy to see this envelope in my mailbox!
Kristina from Stonyfield Farm sent me coupons to try their yogurt! I haven’t tried their Greek yogurt, so I am excited to taste it. Thanks Kristina!
This morning before I left for work, I was in a rush, and really wanted to make my Chicken Tortilla Soup, but didn’t have time to put everything in my crock pot, so I decided to just put the chicken in (1 had 2 big chicken breasts that were frozen) and 4 cups of chicken stock and set it to low and went to work.
I figured when I got home, I would just finish it the way I normally do, but what I decided to do tonight was kind of clean out my veggie drawer and add some extra veggies. This is the recipe I usually make.
I took the chicken breasts out of the crock pot and set them aside. I took the chicken broth out of the crock pot and put half in my blender (Do this in 2 batches because you want to have enough room to mix it all up). I added 1 green pepper, 1 jalapeno pepper, 1 small onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 small zucchini, 2 roma tomatoes, 1 (14) oz. can of diced tomatoes and 1 small can of tomato sauce. Blend until smooth, and transfer to a big pot. Then I added 1 tsp. of cumin, 1 tsp. of chili powder, and 2 tsp. of worchestire sauce. The chicken pretty much just shreds in your hands, so I added the shredded chicken to the soup. Next add 1 can of corn with the liquid. And that’s basically it! I let it cook for about 25 minutes on low. You can serve it with crushed tortillas on top, or just scoop it up like my daughter did in this picture!
With the soup, I made an avocado tomatillo salsa my sister made last week. All you need is a few ingredients: 2 avocado’s with the flesh scooped out, 4 tomatillos, 2 cloves of garlic and the juice of 1 lime. I put everything in my magic bullet and chopped it up. I’m not sure if my sister had a more chunky version, mine was smooth, but mighty tasty! I think it was the lime flavor that I liked the most!
The best part of this is I will have this for lunch tomorrow at work! I actually added 1/4 cup of black beans to my soup after I dished it up. You could probably even put a dollop of the avocado salsa in the soup too!
I love when dinners come out so good!
