Rotating Head ~ Affordable Acts ~ Chicken Tortilla Soup

Good 23º yes, everything is frozen again morning. The sun will come up over the mountain about 8:50 and thaw us out and warm us up.

PICTURE of the day...........

... and from Vince 'The Gov' Govanatori (LASD ret) ....
Obama's Affordable Veterinary Act:
"And, if you like your testicles, you can keep them."
And along that same vein... this from "1030 Dude" Voors (LASD ret)
WARNING: After a recent wave of identity thefts, the FBI estimates there are over 500 fake Obamacare websites set up for the sole purpose of stealing your personal information. So protect yourself and remember: the real one is the one that doesn't work.


I made a chicken tortilla soup that came out fabulous!
Ingredients: rotisserie chicken, onion, garlic head, bell peppers or small sweet peppers, butter, Rotel tomatoes with chilis, chopped green chilis, diced fire roasted tomatoes, white beans, pinto beans, chicken stock, 1 Lawrys Taco seasoning packet, chicken stock (1½ cartons), 10 corn tortillas, tortilla chips, about 8 oz. grated cheese, ½ - 1 cup whipping cream.  

Sauté the garlic, onion, and peppers in butter (1 cube) until tender. Drain the tomatoes, chilis, beans, and Rotel. Shred chicken. Cut tortillas into small pieces. Add all ingredients to crockpot ...except cheese, tortilla chips, and cream. Turn on low for about 5 hours.

Before ready to eat, add in cheese and cream. Cook for another 10 minutes. Ladle into bowls, top with crushed tortilla chips and some shredded cheese.
I didn't put crushed chips on mine, just more cheese. AWEOSMELY GOOD!!!!

Now if it so moves you, you can also add diced celery and carrots and 1 t. garlic powder instead of the fresh garlic.
