Happy Wednesday everyone! 

I have today's post, and one on Saturday from my sister, Shannon, then I'll be taking a week off from blogging for Christmas. I'm looking forward to getting in the kitchen, spending time with my family and relaxing. 

I'm taking 5 days off from my regular job too, which both are much needed! I hope you have a fabulous holiday!

I am absolutely in love with today's recipe! 

I whipped it up from ingredients in my fridge and pantry when I was too lazy to leave the house and go grocery shopping. 

I am such a homebody on the weekends, so it was nice to not venture out in this chilly MN weather. I ended up bringing leftovers to work the next day, and both my brother and sister loved this recipe too!

We love Mexican flavors, and this soup has all that and more. It's full of veggies and cheese. So fresh, but yet so comforting. Perfect for a cold day with some crusty bread or crackers!
