: All I know is, if you don't figure out this something, you'll just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if it's a work of art, or a taco, or a pair of socks! Just create something... new, and there it is, and it's you, out in the world, outside of you, and you can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and you know a little more about... you. A little bit more than anyone else does... Does that make any sense at all?" Quote from PS I LOVE YOU

Recipe- Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

I haven't posted a recipe in a long time, but I thought I would share an amazingly easy recipe that is souper good! I love Chicken Tortilla Soup, and I loved how all of them taste a little different. I have made this soup for many people and each of them have liked it. I hope you do too!

What you will need:

2 to 3 frozen chicken breasts
1 can of black beans
1 can of rotel or diced tomatoes with green chilis
1/2 onion chopped
1 cup corn
2 cups of water
1 cube of chicken bullion
1 tsp chili powder( or I used Mexican seasoning)
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic salt

Topping choices:

Shredded cheese
Sour cream
Chopped green onions
Fried tortilla strips


Add all items to the crock pot, make sure to use a crockpot bag for easy cleanup. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. You might have to take the chicken out and shred it then add it back to the soup. Then if you want take corn tortillas and cut them into small strips and fry them in a little bit of hot oil until lightly brown. Drain the grease off and cool them down then put them on top of the hot soup, chow down.

P.S. I am accomplishing an adventure this week so stay tuned. Click here to see my list of adventures and see if you can guess which one I will be accomplishing this week!
