I don't claim to be any sort of craftista, but here you will find everything from recipes to jewelry, all do it yourself and always EASY!!! P.S if anyone has projects you'd like me to try please leave me a comment about it.

Tortilla Soup

Ok Brit this is for you.... but just so you know it is out the order I make up in my mind and it is really throwing me off. haha ok anyway. This is one of my favorite recipes. It is super simple and EVERYONE loves it, I get a lot of requests and compliments. I always make it in the hopes it will last a day or two, but everyone always eats it right up that night. Here you go.

2-3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 (4oz) cans chopped mild green chilies (drained)
3 cloves minced garlic
1 lrg yellow onion diced
2 (15oz) cans petite diced tomatoes including juice
1 cup chicken broth
1 tsp cumin
2-3 limes
1 Can black beans rinsed and drained
1 can or freezer bag of corn
4-6 corn tortillas (corn or flour) cut into 1/4 inch strips
garnish: avocados, Monterey cheese, fresh cilantro.

Place chicken in crock pot. In a medium bowl mix chilies, garlic, onion, tomatoes, chicken broth, cumin, and juice of one lime. Pour over chicken. Cook on high 4 hours, or low 6 hours. (or in my case while you go to church) When meat is fully cooked shred chicken, add extra broth if needed. Add black beans and corn. Continue to cook 10-15 minutes until corn and beans are warm.
Next you can add all your tortihttp://www.blogger.com/post-create.g?blogID=3390096373622891134lla strips to the soup BUT I prefer to add them to each individual bowl because they will get soggy and yucky if you have left overs. Then garnish each bowl, or allow those eating it to have a buffet of sliced avocado, cheese, fresh cilantro and extra limes.
