Hi, I hope you had a Happy New Year and a wonderful holiday season! I'm not really into New Year's resolutions, I'm more into trying to live the next day better than the last. It's not always perfect, but I try not to stress since tomorrow is another day! Hopefully! :) However even though I just said that since it's the start of a new year we at My Creative Time are making some changes...and we hope you like them!
Today we are adding a new segment called Cook-N-Craft, each month we will be a sharing a recipe with you. When I'm crafting all day (little secret...sometimes I make all my projects for the scheduled month in one day) I try to make something in the crock pot or takes time on the stove. When it's cold I usually make a soup.
For today's project, I die cut two hearts with wool felt and stitched together with thick thread. I added a few trinkets from the dollar store a gift card and a mini nail polish. When giving a gift card it really doesn't take long to add a few details to make it more personal.
Chicken Taco Soup
4 chicken breast
1 lg can diced tomatoes with chilies
1 can sliced olives (drained)
1 can corn
1 pkt taco seasoning
1 pkt ranch dressing
2-4 cups of water depending on how thick/thin you like
I did this soup on the stove, but you can easily do it in a crock pot.
Cook chicken then chop or shred depending on preference. Once chicken is cooked add both seasoning packets. Next add remaining ingredients. Stir. Last add water, 1 cup at a time until you get the consistency desired. I tend to add more since the chips soak up the juice.
Garnish with cheese, avocado, tortilla chips, and sour cream, or whatever you preferred.
