Tasty Tuesday: Chicken Enchilada Soup

We recently had this soup and I had Joel take some of the soup out before adding the corn tortillas, making it effectively low carb! Yeah for my tummy! I added some diced avocados to the soup and it was even more amazing than the traditional way that we eat it.

The original recipe we started with was Hot Chicken Enchilada Soup from Cooks.com. We were looking for something similar to the enchilada soup that Chili's serves. It's better in my opinion.


1 doz. corn tortillas

1 onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbsp. oil

1 (14 1/2 oz.) can beef broth

1 (10 oz.) can chicken broth

1 (10 oz.) can cream of chicken soup (undiluted)

1 (6 3/4 oz.) baked fuego chicken*

1 1/2 c. water 

2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. chile powder (spicy not the soup stuff)

1/8 tsp.pepper

2 c. Cheddar cheese, grated

Paprika
Cut 6 tortillas into 1/2 inch strips and set aside. Cut remaining tortillas into thin strips and fry in hot oil until crisp, salt to taste. Set aside.
Saute onion and garlic in oil in Dutch oven. Add next 9 ingredients, bring to boil. Cover; reduce heat and simmer 1 hour. Add tortilla strips and cheese. Simmer, uncovered 10 minutes. Sprinkle with paprika and serve with chips. Makes 8 cups.


*Baked Fuego Chicken is boneless skinless chicken breast rubbed with Fuego seasoning and then baked until done in a 350 degree oven

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…
