Chicken Taco Soup and about that break I just took...

So, I took a break. An unintentional one but one that was needed. I can tell you how work has gotten crazy now that summer is over and boss lady is still out on maternity. Oh, and that she still doesn't know that I'm preggers. "Hello! Welcome back, boss lady! Do you happen to notice the small beach ball I'm hiding under my shirt now?!" Can't wait for that conversation in a couple weeks...

Or how I believe that the second trimester energy boost thing is a big fat lie. I don't think I've slept this much since I was a teenager. I've always been a good sleeper but goodness I'm taking sleeping to a new level right now!

Or how I'm stressed because we are figuring out jobs, money and childcare all at once. My dream is to be a stay-at-home mom and the cost of childcare just might give me my dream! $1300 a month... I don't even want to describe the panic that came over me when I saw that price tag. Prayers are something we covet right now from everyone. Prayers to trust and to not stress about tomorrow. Prayers to believe that He will always provide.

Or how I have finally started cooking again. My hubs just yelled out a big, "AMEN!" to that... Guess I've been slacking a little ;)

So that brings me to this. My first venture back into cooking and wouldn't you know ... it's a crockpot recipe :) Just the way I planned it!

HOORAY! It's fall!! Fall means soups and all things warm and cuddly. Get ready for soup recipes, y'all. This little girl L-O-V-E-S a good homemade soup. So without further ado, I present to you....

Chicken Taco Soup (Crockpot Style)

2-3 chicken breasts (uncooked)
1 medium sized onion, diced
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 can of chicken stock
1 can of rotel
1 can of corn kernels
1 can of chili beans
1 can of black beans
1 can (8 oz) of tomato sauce

Add everything but the chicken to your crockpot. Once you have everything in there place your chicken in the mixture until it is just barely covered. Cover your soup and cook on low for 5 hours. After 5 hours take out your chicken and shred it. Place all of your chicken back in your crockpot and continue cooking for another 2 hours. Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream and whatever your little heart desires!
