Recipe

Once it starts to get cold, I immediately start to think about soup recipes, cuddling up on the couch, and cozy winter clothes. Now sometimes that's hard to do in Los Angeles since it's been over ninety all week, but that doesn't stop me from cranking up the air conditioner and pretending I'm back East.

I always love the idea of using main dish recipes to inspire soups and stews and today's chicken fajita soup recipe is no different. All the classic chicken fajita ingredients in a delicious, slightly spicy tomato chicken broth. Black beans, pinto beans, or rice are all welcome additions to the soup as well. And don't skimp out on the toppings. Bring on the cheddar cheese, avocado, pico de gallo, and sour cream.
