It is winter. Cold, wet, mercurial weather in Hampton Roads, Virginia.
I am SAD. I mean I am afflicted by SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). Not to the point of despair or inability to function normally. It's just that I begin to act like a bear. I eat more, sleep more and generally just want to do nothing much.
Today is a typical winter day here: wet and dreary. The perfect treatment of course is to cook. So on goes the crock pot with one of my favorites. Chicken Tortilla Soup.
Chicken Tortilla Soup (adapted from Becky Harder's recipe in Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly)
1. Combine everything in slow cooker except chips, cheese and sour cream.
2. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
3. Just before serving, cut (or shred) chicken into bite sized pieces.
4. Top as desired and enjoy.
I especially love that you can open and dump, turn on and walk away. Eight hours later, dinner's ready. If you use baked tortilla chips and low fat/low sodium ingredients, it's really good for you and your family.
