Tonight, it was Homemade Chicken Tortilla Soup, topped with cheese, sour cream and crushed tortilla chips. It has been cooking in the crockpot for about 5 hours, so everything is well blended and tasty. Yum, Yum.

Ooh, got a recipe for that? It's been a while since I had good tortilla soup.

Well, much of this is due to taste. So, some of my measurements might be rather vague ....

* One Chicken Breast - grilled (or, get one of those pre cooked packaged chicken bags like Foster Farms) the southwest seasoned chicken works well. Cut into small pieces
* 2 cans of diced tomatoes - with green chilies
* 2 cans of chills beans
* 1 can of corn (drained)
* 1 tablespoon of minced garlic (more or less to taste)
* diced onion (to taste)
* chopped Cilantro (to taste)
* ground cumin (to taste, but don't over do it ...)
* some ground pepper
* 1/2 to 1 cup of water

I use a 6 qt crockpot. A large stew pot would work as well. The crockpot gives me a little more piece of mind, for me to walk away from my soup while it's cooking. I'd have to stay home to watch the stew pot on a stove. I put the onion, garlic, chicken, pepper, cumin, cilantro and corn in first. Let it warm some - stir. Then, tomatoes and beans. Add water as needed. Try to let it cook for several hours on medium. When served, I top my soup with crushed tortilla chips, cheese and sour cream. Again, this is all to taste - additional items can be added to change the flavor.

Enjoy.

I got gifted with about 7 or 8lbs of Brie cheese so I've been working my way through and thinking of different ways to eat it. Tonight for my 2nd meal (aka dinner) I took a wedge of brie, topped it with pitted dates cut in half, wrapped the entire thing in bacon and put it in a nonstick pan. Then I dusted it with some Montana Mex Sweet Salt (sugar with salt and orange peel and chiles etc). Baked for about 20-25 minutes until the bacon had crisped a bit and caramelized and the brie was runny. Ate it with a nice Harry & David Pear (chilled to maximize the contrast between hot and cold).

Smoked sausage, grilled onions and hot banana peppers over rice.
With a side of hash browns.
Left over apple pie as well.
Just what I had on hand I needed to use up.

Spaghetti with meat sauce.
I had several odd pieces of beef in the freezer, seasoned them, threw them in the slow cooker with onions and garlic for 3 hours, added tomato paste, cooked for 2 more hours, diced the meat, and cooked for an hour.

Next time, adding peppers and ground fennel seed.
