Food Friday: Chicken Tortilla Soup

My mom made tortilla soup while I was in Phoenix.  She had gotten the base from a craft fair.  And I thought, I can make that at home. So I went in search of a recipe.  My sister told about one she used in the crock pot, that it stated to not be afraid of all the ingredients and it used enchilada sauce.  I found it here.

And everyone was right.  The ingredient list is long but not horrible (my turkey chili recipe has a longer list) and it all just gets mixed together in the crockpot.  Set it on low for 8 hours and we were done!

I did crush up tortilla chips and added them in during the last hour to thicken up the soup a bit.  But it would have been fine without it as well.

In another raging case of lazy, I bought a rotisserie chicken at Costco and used that in the soup.  It was delicious and the recipe will definitely become a winter-time favorite around here.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
