I promise, I do eat at home usually, it's just lately that I seem to be at other homes a lot. But my friend cooked some really yummy soup, recipe below. I made dessert again. (It is the easiest thing for me to prepare and transport since I usually travel the farthest to family and friend events. You know, living in North Salt Lake - we are just out in the boonies.)
1 T vegetable oil
1 onion, minced
1 jalapeno chile, stemmed, seeded and minced
1 T chili powder
2 garlic cloves, minced
8 c chicken broth (I added 2 more cups)
1lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 T fresh lime juice
3 tomatoes, chopped
2 avocados, cut
1. Heat the oil, add the onion, jalapeno, chili powder and garlic. Cook until the onion is softened. Stir in the broth and bring to a simmer. Add the chicken and simmer, partially uncovered, until no longer pink, about 15 min.
2. Remove the chicken and let cool. Continue to simmer the broth for 10 min. Meanwhile, shred the chicken in bite-sized pieces.3. Remove the broth from the heat and stir in the lime juice. Divide portions of the chips, chicken, tomatoes and avocados among individual bowls. Ladle the broth over each bowl and sprinkle with cilantro. Cheese would also be yummy.
Pumpkin Bars (I found this recipe on this food blog. It is like pumpkin bread but even more moist - ick, I don't like that word.)
