Mexican Chicken Soup

We have been talking about making a soup like this for a while. So, today I thought I would give it a try. The recipe came from what I had in the cabinet and what I thought would taste good in it. I am going to surprise my husband with it for dinner tonight.

1 pkg boneless skinless chicken breast, cut up into 1 inch cubes
1 can chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can enchilada sauce
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can black beans
1 onion, chopped
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix

---Garnish and Serve with (if desired)
grated cheese
sour cream
Frito's Scoops

Cut up chicken breast, put in crock pot add chicken broth and 1 cup water. Cook for about 1 hour or until chicken looks white. Add remaining ingredients. Cook on high several hours. Then, turn to low and simmer until time for dinner.

Creamy Crunchy Fudge

I have a habit of when I want to make something, I will look at several recipes and then come up with my own recipe. The other day when I was craving fudge, this was the recipe I ended up making and it was delicious.

1 can of condensed milk
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts

In a microwave safe bowl combine the condensed milk and chocolate chips. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove and stir until the chocolate chips are melted. Add the marshmallows and microwave 1 minute. Remove and stir until marshmallows are melted and combined completely. Stir in vanilla and chopped walnuts and stir until they are incorporated throughout the fudge. Spread into a wax paper lined 8 or 9 inch square pan. Chill until firm. Remove wax paper and cut in 1 inch squares. Store in the refrigerator.

**This fudge is delicious, rich, and creamy. The hardest thing about this recipe is waiting for it to chill. If you are in a big hurry you could put it in the freezer for five minutes to speed up the process. Of course if you don't like walnuts or can't eat them, you can leave them out and just have a creamy fudge.
