food: fajita soup

for some reason, vancouver regressed back into winter this week.
its been cold and rainy and miserable outside… which can only mean one thing; soup!

making soup is one of the easiest things on the planet… since you literally just dump stuff into a pot and make it go.

although, there is a slight order that must be followed.

we had fajitas for dinner the other day… and had loads of peppers, onions and chicken breast fajita seasoned left over in the fridge.
so, we invented fajita soup!

we sauteed some carrots & celery in bacon fat (yes, see what i did there?) and then added the leftover fajita stuff, some sliced cherry tomatoes and some extra spices; cumin, s&p, chipotle ect.  and a habenero.
we made it extra spicy because i’ve been sick with a cold and spicy soup will cure what ails you.

then we added some good quality chicken stock, frozen corn & chopped local kale.  and simmered until we couldn’t stand the delightful smell any longer.

we topped it with chopped cilantro, green onions and a dollop of creme fraiche that we made in our cheese making class.
(there’s no picture of the finished bowl because i was too hungry – sorry)
