The Food I Eat

People ask me all the time "what do you eat?!?!?" Here is the answer

holy crap this tastes good! January 7, 2013

ohhhhhhh YUM!  Mexican chicken soup!

*adapted from Paleo slow cooking by Chrissy Gower*

Mexican Chicken Soup

1 medium onion

4 celery stalks chopped

2 TBS olive oil

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 Jalapeno pepper, diced

16 ounces of chicken broth

2 cans of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies

2 jars Kroger brand Chipotle Enchilada sauce

1 1/2 tsp cumin

1 1/2 tsp chili powder

1 can full fat coconut milk

– Saute’ onion, celery and carrots in oil over medium heat until onions are translucent and place in bottom of crock pot

– Place trimmed and rinsed chicken breasts on top of veggies

– mix all remaining ingredients together in separate bowl and pour over top.

– Turn crock pot on low and cook for 7-8 hours

If you want to get crafty to shred your chicken then remove chicken with a spoon and place in your stand up mixers bowl.  ‘mix’ for 30 seconds……and viola your chicken is shredded!

before I 'mixed' it

before I ‘mixed’ itafter! perfectly shredded chicken!

after! perfectly shredded chicken!

Then I just put it back in the crock pot and served it…….to myself at 10:00pm because we ate dinner at 5:00pm so I could take my daughter roller skating at 6:00pm and I was HUNGRY.

Here is a photo of my soup with a piece of cilantro on top so it would look pretty for you all:

I mentioned Kroger brand Chipolte enchilada sauce because it is the only one that I could find at Kroger that doesn’t have all the added corn syrup and general crap that the others have.  I have found that for canned stuff 99% of the time the Kroger brand or the Organic Kroger brand is the only ones that I can actually eat.
