Hardy Mexican Chicken Tortellini Soup

I’ve been working on making this my double up and meal prep week.

One of the things I have prepped in this savory soup that is perfect for a cold day.

Feeds 4 + some for storing adjust according to your family size

Let’s Start with what you will need.

1lb bag of Cheese Tortellini( I used Frozen this time)

1/4 cup of elbo macaroni (optional)

1 medium sized onion chopped (red if you have one, but I didnt this time and used white)

2 celery stock pieces choppped

2 cloves of garlic

1 pint of diced tomato or 4 tomatoes diced

2 box of chicken broth

1 whole Rotisserie chicken ( I literally by the already cooked ones to save me time and money)

1/4 cup chopped carrot stixx

1/2 cup of red,yellow, orange sweet bell pepper mini

2 heaping table spoons of Italian seasoning

1/4 cup of fresh cilantro chopped

1/2 Avacodo ( for topping)

1 tbs of chilli powder ( clean looking ingredients meaning you can read and understand what your eating)

1tbs of taco seasoing ( clean looking ingredients avoid msg)

1 can of tomato soup

1 tbs of black pepper

Mexican Cheese blend ( for topping)

2 cups of water

1/2 cup of orange juice

Combine all liquid incredients and HALF of each spice and herb in a pot

let that cook for 1 hour on low

Pull the breast meat and one leg meat off the chicken, throw it in the pot.

* If you threw the whole chicken in the freezer like I did this particular day just be sure to throw it in the fridge the night before and then put it in your soup as soon as you throw the herbs n such in.

The other part I pull off and use for other meals such as chicken salad or quesodillas, salad topping ( fry in a pan with a little oil peprika and lemon peper), etc

Put in your elbo macaroni and Tortellini

the last 20 min add in your chopped veggies and the rest of your herbs n spices, except the cilatro save that.

Cook

Serve with a toping of avacado and cheese

Put the rest in a freezer bag laying flat to save room

OR can that sucker up in a canning jars.

Optional toppings

sour cream

corn chips

Tortilla toasted

There you have it, you made supper and prepped for another night all in one pot.

Vinison Nacho Dip that’s Super Bowl Worthy

All right people Superbowl is coming and we need super simple, easy, food!

So I’ll share one of my lazy, feed a lot of people, and relax, ” mealsโ€.

This will also save your wallet especially if you already have a deer in the freezer from the season…

You will need

3lb of ground venison/bacon – we add the bacon with hickory liquid smoke in when processing- or just ground venison or beef. If you want the bacon taste…add a little bit of bacon grease.

15oz can of a Tri Bean Blend of kidney,pinto, and black beans ( Blend this)

1 half jar of tostitos nacho cheese dip

2TBS of sour cream

1/4 cup of old El Paso Taco Sauce

1 package of old El Paso Taco seasoning
Brown meat and drain off access liquid – I’m the person everyone hates who boils the blood out with water and sea salt, do this if you want to.

Rinse meat with cool water in a colander.

Transfer to crock pot

Combine meat, sour cream,cheese dip, sauce, seasoning, blended beans.

Cook on high for 2 hours in the crock pot

* I sometimes add a shredded cheese on top when done.

Serve as a dip or over nacho chips with lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and what ever else you like with nachoes.
