I would say I can’t wait for the cold weather to get here so I can make that Crock-Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup, but we’re in the Houston, Tx. area, and if I sat around and waited for cold weather I might not ever make it! It’s on the menu this week no matter what!


Yay! Let us know how it comes out. We are sure you will love it.
