The Yankee and I love to have snacky suppers every so often; just some crackers, some cheese, maybe some salami or dried fruit or nuts. Browsing through How to Cook Everything today I came across a recipe for crackers. Did y’all have any idea how fast it is to make crackers? I certainly did not. [...]
Oh I wish I could make this look as good as it tasted!
My fabulous friend Lissa makes this so often that she doesn’t even look at the recipe anymore. That’s the sign of a good supper! She told me how to make it while The Kiddo and I were visiting last fall, and I [...]
Another classic Southern comfort food dish. Ahh…. so fabulous.
I learned to make this dish when I was just out of college and had a job that was more handling customers than washing diapers. For the record, I’ll take Cheerios over conference calls any day. This was one of those “oh I use some [...]
This, like a lot of my recipes, is cobbled together from so many different recipes and word of mouth that I’m not even sure where it started. It involves my Mama’s concoction of spices, though, so it’s awesome. And spicy. Feel free to tone down the spices and add more later if it looks [...]
January is the perfect time for a pot of tortilla soup! My friend Rachel gave me this recipe after I devoured admired a pot of it at her house. And it’s so easy to make!
Print Tortilla Soup
2 cans black beans 1 can corn 1 can diced tomatoes
1 can Ro-Tel
3 chicken breasts, boiled and shredded
Chicken broth from boiling the chicken
1 packet taco seasoning
1 packet dry ranch seasoning
Shredded cheese — cheddar, colby, jack or some combination thereof
Boil the chicken in plenty of water till it’s cooked through
Shred the chicken and set aside the resulting broth
Stir together beans, corn, tomatoes, Rotel, spices and chicken in a pot
Add in chicken broth till it’s as soupy as you like it
Simmer for at least 30 minutes, then serve with Fritos and cheese on top
You can play with these ingredients at will. It’s not exact at all! Like more beans? More corn? Run with it. Also easy to make with bags of frozen veggies if you’re making a bigger pot. Speaking of which, this soup freezes beautifully. I make gigantic batches and freeze supper-sized portions for easy weeknight meals. Also great with cornbread!
