    Chicken Tortilla Gumbo

    This Chicken Tortilla Gumbo was a completely delicious surprise! When I first made it, I never thought it would be something that I would post here – but we loved it so much, I just had to share! The birth of this recipe is a funny story actually… A few weeks back Jake and I went to the grocery store together. Now you might not think this is a big deal, but Jake NEVER comes to the grocery store with me! So I was excited. It was a cold wintery Sunday and he had suggested that I make Chicken Tortilla Soup for dinner – great! Problem was, we got to…

    Chicken Enchiladas

    A friend of mine recently made chicken enchiladas at a pre-Halloween party gathering – Oh. Em. Gee. I didn’t realize how much I LOVE Chicken Enchiladas! I also didn’t realize how easy they are to make! Double win! Like many of my recipes, this one has a few options to make the recipe more or less complex. Chicken – In the recipe, I suggest to cook raw chicken in a crockpot for a few hours with salsa and other seasonings. This is SUPER easy, but time consuming.

    One Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

    Its official – I’ve got the fever. No, I am not sick. But I have got SOUP FEVER! Sorry that is so lame, I know – but it’s true! I am love love loving soup right now. After enjoying a nice hot bowl of my Crockpot Turkey, White Bean, Bacon Chili two weekends ago, and then ANOTHER amazing bowl of Butternut Squash Soup this past weekend – you’d think I’d be sick of soup already! But no, all I want is more soup! This week I’m thinking I’d still like something which makes additional cheese consumption appropriate. However, I want the recipe to be light – not too heavy. Nothing with cream. Something packed…
