Phew! Going back to work after a few days off for the holidays is always tough, anyone else with me on that?! 😛
At least last night I had the perfect easy dinner to get me relaxed and ready for the work week:
Thanks to Fanantic Mom’s ability to know her daughter oh so well, my stocking this year included a delicious soup mix from Frontier Soups for an easy go-to meal!
All I had to do was add chicken, chicken stock and salsa. Bam.
Good thing I whipped up some homemade chicken stock just that morning too, I mean, what are the chances?! 😉
Homemade chicken stock seriously turns any meal from great to fan-freakin’-tastic. Trust me.
Next time you roast a chicken or cook a bone-in piece, just stash the bones in the freezer until you have a snowy Sunday morning to throw together some stock. Celery, onion, fresh thyme, black pepper and salt plus an hour or two and you’re good to go.
I used Whole Foods chicken breasts, which I cooked in said chicken stock before shredding and adding to the soup mix.
To serve I decided to try some homemade tortilla strips.
I can’t wait to bust out the new tortilla press soon… so soon!
Fresh corn tortillas definitely > than packaged 😉
Corn tortillas in a few tablespoons of vegetable oil.
One or two for garnish was all this needed. Plus some shredded cheese and sour cream (or Greek yogurt!) to top and dinner – served!
This soup mix was a hit. The Man and I both really really enjoyed it!
There were also some much needed greens to go with.
If you want to pick up this soup mix too, I’m pretty sure they sell it at Whole Foods. I know I’ll definitely be stashing one away in the cabinet for a fast and delicious go-to meal option 🙂
Now I’m off to relax and sit on my bootay – the Yoga for Buns download I did after work tonight totally kicked my you-know-what!!!
