Brrr....it's getting cold outside!

I love cold weather, mostly because I love comfort food.  Who wants to eat warm, cozy food when it's a 100 degrees outside?  So many of my favorite foods are winter-weather food.

I could eat soup pretty much every day.  I LOVE soups of all kinds.

Here is a recipe I plan on trying to make tonight.  It sounds amazing.



Chicken-Lime-Tortilla Soup

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 lb chicken breast, boneless and skinless
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • Juice of 3 limes

  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

  • 1 cup Mexican cheese (shredded)
  • 1 tsp. minced garlie
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Tortilla strips
Directions:
  • Simmer chicken stock, tomato, Worcestershire, and lime juices with the jalapeno, cilantro for 45 minutes.
