Another Chilly Day in April

Today the high was 44 and I was chilled to the bone (again).  I really wanted to warm up so made this recipe called Tracy's soup. We had this soup at Tracy and her husband's cabin about a year ago.  It was a huge hit and luckily she shared (hence the name)!  It is quick, easy and really delicious - John gave it 4.5 stars! 


Start by dicing the veggies and chicken



Saute these in a large pot




Next is to add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer for 20 minutes



Squeeze in the lime juice


And then discard (this reminded me of a venus fly trap!)


Chop some cilantro to your liking


Toppings could include crushed tortilla chips and cheddar cheese

Dinner is served!


Let's hope tomorrow we get that 65 degree weather they are talking about!!
