Mexican Chicken Soup

You may have started to notice a certain theme with these recipe postings… there’s a whole lotta Mexican-style dishes! Even though I love a variety of food types and styles, Mexican is probably my absolute favorite. It’s so fun and full of flavor. Plus, spicy is my favorite too. 🙂

Even though it’s FINally spring and the weather is warming up a bit (yay!), there are sure to be a few chilly spring nights over the next few weeks, so this soup would be perfect to enjoy on a backyard patio with a view of the sunset and maaybe even a nice, cold Negra Modelo. 😉
