I love winter because winter means soup.

24 Jul

Here in the House of Frog, we are big lovers of Tex-Mex. Tacos, burritos, nachos, fajitas, quesadillas: you name it, we never met a Mex recipe that we didn’t like. I’ve even been known to make my own tortillas. But our hands-down favourite is chicken enchiladas. We have them at least once a month.

I use Old El Paso’s enchilada kit and slow-cook the chicken in the crock-pot, and then come dinner-time it’s a simple matter of assemble, bake and fling together some salad.

Anyway, last month I did them up as usual, and the next day when I looked at the leftover chicken, I thought “Nah, I don’t really want this as-is…” So I threw in a tin of beans, some chicken stock, and a couple of handfuls of frozen corn niblets.

Soup! Tangy with tomatoes, zingy with capsicum, chunky and filling with beans and corn and chicken and mushrooms. What’s not to love?

I did it on purpose this time, making extra chicken so
I’ll have enough for several days worth of lunches.

Happy happy joy joy.

    We are having Sunday Soup days because it’s a fantastic way of getting vegies into Tyler who sees a vege and won’t eat it. Give him a thick pureed soup and some bread on the other hand….gobble, gobble, gobble 🙂
