Dispensing Happiness

A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.-Elsa Schiapirelli

That's me, the magical good cook.

Borrowing from my friend Dexygus, I've created my own food blog.

Read of my exploits in the kitchen! Salivate over the descriptions of fabulous desserts and savory meals I've concocted!

No, seriously...go ahead. It'll make my day.

Souper Sundays: Chipotle Chicken Tortilla Soup


Another Sunday, another soup. Another chance to join up with Deb & Souper Sundays.

This soup was all for Matt. I think the name explains all.

I used this recipe, with a few changes. First, for the broth, I roasted the chicken beforehand, giving it a deeper & richer flavor. No cilantro, as I didn't want the soup to taste like dishwater.

I had some lime-infused rice from another dish, so substituted that for the plain or brown rice. Matt won't eat sweet potatoes, so white instead.

Skipped frying tortilla strips, to save time, and just used chips. And naturally, our avocados were in bad shape...

But he loved it. A spicy, warming, filling soup. And it made the house smell amazing.

Time to unpack your grass skirt, and gather your coconuts, because for our 42nd get-tether, it's Tiki, Two here at Blog Party!

Hope to see you there.

Your soup looks like a big, warm hug on a cold day.

Deb, he really did. Apparently, got spicier the day after.

I'll be there, so long as I'm able. Hate to miss it!
