Chicken Tortilla Soup

Is there anything more comforting than a warm bowl of soup? I had a little bit of a sore throat and head cold recently and all I wanted was spicy, hot soup to ease my pain. Now don't be scared off, this soup isn't very spicy on it's own, but if you have had dinner with me you know I had extra hot sauce to almost everything.

I've never had a Mexican street taco, like from the streets of Mexico, but I have been to … [Read more...]

And if your stores are open like mine are there is still time to run out and get any ingredients you may need. I couldn't believe the grocery store was open regular hours today. They could at least close a few hours early to allow their employees time at their family BBQ's and … [Read more...]
