sopa picante picante

It has been very rainy and cold here in Waco and after a full day of classes and errands I decided to make the most of what I had laying around for dinner (in addition to a few store bought extras). I filled my crockpot full of vegetables and chicken to simmer away all afternoon into something yummy and Autumn-like.

3 chicken breasts - butterflied and cut into strips
4 zucchini - halved lengthwise and sliced into half-moons
5 roma tomatoes - quartered
4-6 cloves of garlic - minced
2 cups of corn - fresh or canned
6 or so cups of chicken broth
salt and pepper to tatse
plenty of olive oil
chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
** this last ingredient is now where this soup gets its name. I thought adding a little kick would give my soup some boldness and depth - BUT the amount I added WHEWW took it over the edge. I think I added the whole small jar (chopped) and about half of the sauce. In the future I would recommend adding 2-3 if not less.

Just add all the ingredient into the crockpot and cook on high for about 2 and half hours.

Love and miss you all

No Matter What

Psalm 16:5
      LORD, You are my portion
        and my cup of blessing;
                 You hold my future.

"Lord, in all the chaos, crisis, all the threat and doubt, You caused my life to work out. Instead of me falling apart, the lines of my life have fallen together. Truly I can say that You have given me a delightful inheritance.

No matter what life hands us, the favor God has on us, his children, turns our destruction into divine destiny, one trusting step at a time. When all is said and done, we will see that the "portion" God assigned was good, right, rich and full of purpose..."
Have a wonderful day...lisa
