The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Quick & Easy Tortilla Soup

Quick & Easy Tortilla Soup

Looking for a quick and easy weeknight dinner that's super tasty? This will be perfect for you! I was tired after work and literally threw this together last minute for dinner last week, using ingredients I already had on hand. I really didn't expect it to turn out so good, because I had always made tortilla soup that take a little longer and little more love to make. This could be on your table in 20-30 minutes (sorry I didn't time it) and it's pretty hands off (I undecorated my Christmas tree while making it).  Also, I'm fully admitting there was a lack of measuring and paying attention with this recipe since I was taking my tree down, but the flavors will all blend together well despite how much of each you put in. Adjust ingredients according to your preferences and taste as you go!

Also, I highly recommended topping your tortilla soup with avocado. I was devastated when I peeled my avocado and realized the one I purchased at the store was rotten. So I just sulked for a bit and then enjoyed my soup.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup white wine
1 14.5 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 14.5 oz. can Rotel
2-3 cups cooked chicken (shredded or cut into pieces)
3 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons chipotle chile powder (adjust according to heat preference)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 bag frozen corn
1 can black beans, drained
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
tortilla chips, broken into pieces
cheddar cheese, shredded

Heat olive oil in large stove top pan (I used my dutch oven) over medium high heat. 

Add onions and garlic to pan and cook for abuot 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in wine and let simmer for about 2 more minutes. 

Add in crushed tomatoes, Rotel, chicken, chicken broth, chipotle chile powder and cumin. Reduce heat to medium and let cook for about 7 minutes. Add in corn, black beans, worcestershire and pepper and let cook for about 10-15 more minutes (or until heated through). If you haven't already tasted the soup, taste and adjust seasoning as needed.

Garnish with tortilla chips, cheese (or sour cream), and avocado and enjoy!
