I am still here! I have been MIA but wanted to share an easy, quick, low-carb soup with you.... Green Enchilada Chicken Soup from Seeking Good Eats Two of my girls are home this week and it is cold and rainy in Nebraska. My friend Susan shared this recipe with me. We loved it. We put tortilla chips in the bottom of the bowl and we all topped with green onion, cilantro and avocado. Next time, I would love to top with some Cotija cheese. YUM! Thank you Seeking Good Eats! We will be making this again!
