Spicy Chicken Taco Soup

I needed a recipe to use up the last of my chicken and the stellar stock that I made from it. I couldn’t find a recipe for chicken tortilla soup that was healthy enough or flavorful enough. So I just threw a bunch of things together and it turned out pretty well!

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cumin

Salt and pepper to taste

Chop up vegetables coarsely, add all ingredients to a saucepan or crockpot. Heat on stove until boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. If in slow cooker, cook on medium for    2-3 hours. Top with plain greek yogurt, shredded cheese, and crushed tortilla chips.

The whole time I was eating this I wished I could pair it with a frozen margarita, it just seemed like that would of been the best combination.

You can also add tomatoes, I just didn’t have any at home.

I couldn’t accurately add the nutrition information for this recipe because I don’t know what  my homemade stock facts would be. Sorry guys!

Whats your favorite Margarita recipe!?

Cheesy chicken Mexican wrap

I am very excited to make lunch today using the happy chicken and whole-wheat wraps I made yesterday. These are simple and delicious, and if you are missing an ingredient you can substitute a whole slew of other things.

                                                                            Ingredients:

                                                                Whole-Wheat Tortillas
                                                                Precooked Organic chicken
                                                                1/8 cup cheddar cheese (or whatever kind you prefer!)
                                                                banana and jalapeno peppersP1080840
3 tablespoons black beans
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt

Combine all of the ingredients on top of the tortilla. heat in frying pan or in the microwave. Add a dollop of Greek yogurt, and rolllll it up! (I think plain Greek yogurt tastes the same as sour cream and it is a much healthier and nutritious choice.)
