Chicken Tortilla Soup

Last night I knew my husband would be coming home from a week-long business trip. I knew that I wanted to have a ┬áhome cooked meal for him… as being on the road can be rough. Eating out all week… or sometimes in his case not eating at all is not healthy.

I went to my recipe collection and wanted something easy and healthy! I choose this delicious recipe! I didn’t even have all the ingredients in my pantry and had to make a quick stop at the grocery store… but that is okay… because this recipe truly was perfect for us for dinner.

My husband came home with a cold…. especially a sore throat. He told me this was perfect on his sore throat. THE NEAT THING was I through this all together around 5 o’clockish and then we had dinner at 6:30. Yes… last-minute I know… but it was fantastic. It was so easy to dump all the ingredients into the crock-pot and then finish up what I needed to. This recipe became a new family favorite. It was so easy to prepare.

Here is the recipe…

Please don’t forget to add the lime juice [if you are a fan of lime.] It truly makes the soup!

I absolutely loved the flavor and texture of this soup.

Crock Pot Beef Stew

Crock Pot Beef Stew

This Crock Pot Beef Stew hit our dinner table this week. It was a very simple meal and I had prepared it the morning. By dinner time… it made the house smell delicious.

This is my mama’s recipe.
I am happy to share it with you.

Crock Pot Beef Stew

By Carrie Perrins

1 pkg. stew meat- browned
3 cans French onion soup
3 cans cream of celery soup
potatoes- peeled and cubed
baby carrots-a small bag
salt and pepper to taste

Put all ingredients into a crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours.
* You can use as many potatoes as you would like. I usually do about 6 small to medium potatoes. For the carrots you can use canned, fresh, or just the baby carrots like I did. Whatever you have on hand or what you prefer works.

I love how easy this recipe is. I usually buy several of the canned goods and store them on my pantry shelf. That way when I am out of ideas I can throw this in the crock pot.
I have even made this and took it camping before. It was wonderful.
This really is the only beef stew that I have ever made.
Thanks mama for the great recipe!

I hope you enjoy it!
Carrie
