"Never eat more than you can lift. " - Miss Piggy

We FINALLY had our second dinner club! Of course I forgot to take pictures. There were only five of us able to attend last month. The theme was "Cinco de Mayo"!

Dishes included chili dip, Chicken Tortilla Soup, enchiladas, and spicy salsa & guacamole. All were washed down with margaritas of course! All the food was delicious, although I didn't like my dish that much. :( The enchiladas were a little too beany for me. Is that even a word? If not, it is now!

We all voted again and the winning dish by an unanimous vote was.....

CHICKEN TORTILLA SOUP!!!! (Congratulations mom!)

She said she got this recipe from a teacher she works with at school. It was delicious! Unfortunately, my daughter didn't like it, so I will have to wait until she moves out in order to make it. Only 9 more years to go!

If you like Mexican food, and you can't have dairy, this is a perfect recipe for you! You can make it as spicy as you want with your salsa. Enjoy it!! And hope you had a wonderful Cinco de Mayo!!

Chicken Tortilla Soup
(This dish can bee made on the stove or in a slow cooker!)

1 can of refried beans
1 16oz. can of chicken broth
2 cups of salsa (my mom used mild, but you choose your spiciness)
3-4 chicken breasts cut up into bite size cubes
1 can of black beans, drained & rinsed
1 15oz. can of whole kernel corn including liquid

If you are cooking on the stove, bring all ingredients to a boil. In a slow cooker, mix all ingredients and cook on auto for 4 hours.

Serve topped with grated cheddar cheese and sour cream!
