Mexico Soup

     Had a wonderful day!  I went to our public market which is fairly large here.  I thought to myself you should get some lettuce cheap as a treat for annabelle (one of rabbits has a wound we are treating).  Also thought that I should get some fresh veggies for myself.  We walked the whole market even saw some really sketchy meat and fish stalls.  What do I end up leaving with … a pair of mittens yup mittens.  I couldn’t help myself they were so cute and my fingers were so cold.  I went totally unprepared and did not bring gloves or hat, I did however bring a giant bag to put all my loot in …I mean my mittens that I am actually just going to wear.
I also went to Jo-ann Fabrics which is very dangerous for as a quilter.  I got some really cute things to wrap presents in, as well as a few things for me.  I decided to make soup tonight since it cold out and Jeff isn’t home.  A nice warm hearty soup sounded good. Picture PictureHearty Mexico Soup
Ingredients:
1 medium onion
1 T minced garlic
2 T butter
4 cups chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes
shredded chicken
1 bunch of cilantro
1 lime
2 t black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon oregano
shredded cheese
avocado

In a medium pot melt butter and saute onion and garlic until translucent.  Add chicken broth and canned tomatoes.  Add shredded Chicken (you can use a rotisserie chicken).  Simmer for 15 minutes.  Add chopped cilantro and juice of lime.  Season to taste the above amounts are really more of suggestions :).  I usually put some cheese in mine as well as diced avocado and enjoy!

​I hope you are enjoying the weekend!
