Today appears like a soup day time, don’t you think that?
I’ve been ill with a chilly for the past few days, so soup has really been the thing desirable. That and it’s been snowing in Chicago once again, which means I don’t like to leave the house unless I’ll work out. I’m serious. There have been too many instances this Winter where I haven’t been able to feel my toes, even when they’re in shoes.
The upside to all of this is the fact that I’m going on the cruise next week with my Mother! We’re beyond thrilled to have a little mom and girl time together. Is it possible to believe we’ve actually never had a REAL vacation together?! Nope, not once. I’m so glad that I am able to bring my her, because you know, moms are indeed the best.
Wanna know what else is the perfect? SLOW COOKERS! Seriously can’t overcome throwing random things I find in the fridge into this big older pot that simmers all day. I haven’t tried to cook anything apart from soup, but I’m loving being able to place it and ignore it. Or nevertheless that saying will go.
This soup cured my chilly, made my apartment smell such as a little Mexican cafe, and was just about easy and simple thing I’ve available. I found a few things at Entire Foods that I desperately wished to throw in the magic pot: a cup jar of Muir Glen fire-roasted tomatoes , poblano peppers AND some really seedy yummy tortilla potato chips. You know the multi-grain everything type. Those would continue the surface of the soup, I chose. (Because this is a poultry tortilla soup in the end.)
But where are the potato chips?! You’ll see they’re not in any of the photos.
Umm well, I kinda ate them. Yeah most of them actually During the period of a few times of course. I just couldn’t stop! And when I noticed that they were said to be in my own photoshoot once I acquired done placing everything up, it had been already too late. Lesson learned: Chips usually do not below in my house, specifically the seedy, multi-grain salty crunchy kind.
Anyway, that is my undertake the vintage version of poultry tortilla soup. I added corn and quinoa, because hellooooo deliciousness within a dish. The Muir Glen tomatoes are great because they’re cooked over an open flame, then jarred not canned so you obtain pure tomato flavor. You can find them at Whole Foods!
We roasted poblano peppers within this formula because I love the flavor they bring to the soup broth, nevertheless, you can simply use canned green chiles instead and still get yourself a terrific sizzlin’ soup.
