Fall means soup!

So, I may have gotten a wee bit lazy with my recipes which is why I haven't posted! But, I will share two with you now in a couple posts. Aren't I the best? :) All of my recent recipes I found somewhere on Pinterest. Can I get a woop woop for that amazing, addicting site? I am super excited to share these last couple of delicious, healthy recipes with you. I must confess, however, that plans changed a bit and we ended up having left overs on Saturday night after a long but awesome day with out super close friends at the waterpark. So here's what we had Saturday Night:

Chicken Enchilada Soup.

It's fall in my book and I will wait no longer to break out the soup recipes!

What's in it:
3 cups chicken stock
2 skinless, chicken breasts (I used 1.3 lbs total between the two)
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ancho chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
4-6 jalapeno peppers, minced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 large onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups frozen corn
1/2 cup tomato paste
8 oz cotija cheese, crumbled
8 oz pepperjack cheese, divided
1 cup cilantro, chopped
Tortilla chips

How I made it:
Here's the deal. Yes, it's fall...ish. Which means I can get away with anything having to do with fall, maybe even a pair of boots, but let's be real, I live in Arizona, so slaving over a hot stove, when it's still 100 out, is not how I want to spend my evenings. So I decided to take a risk and throw every ingredient into the crock pot, I know, I know, I live on the edge. But really, I even threw in a frozen peice of chicken. I let it cook while we were at youth so probably 2:30-9:30. And it was perfect. I left out the cheese (fatty) and the tortilla chips (too many carbs) but my husband and I both thought it was delicious. In fact, my husband got creative and added some sour cream to it today as his left over lunch and it was yummmmyyy.

With love,
