I have a.. soup! Mexican Chicken soup

Ég elska að malla súpur þegar veðrið er voðalega Októberískt.. já það er orð. Kalt, dimmt, vindur og rigning. Ekkert betra en að malla góða súpu já og svo er það eitthvað svo húsmæðralegt eitthvað. Ég allavegana fæ svo mikið egó og montið rýkur upp þegar ég malla eina góða. Skemmir ekki fyrir að gera auka og eiga svo í frystinum, sérstaklega fyrir mig sem tek alltaf með mér nesti í vinnuna – já og svo egóið þegar maður er spurður hvaða súpu maður sé með í vinnunni “Ég henti þessari fram úr erminni um daginn!”

Leiðbeiningar og hvað þarf í þessa er hérna fyrir neðan á ensku – ef það er eitthvað að vefjast fyrir ykkur endilega skellið í komment hérna fyrir neðan, ég elska komment.

When this season hits, the wet – not too cold  but still cold season, I love having soups for dinner! Making soup makes the house smell amazing and it gives me that feeling I am a superhousewife regardless of the time and effort it takes. It is relatively easy making a good soup, just don’t tell anyone that and the superhousewife label is yours!

Mexican Chicken soup is one of my favourites – a bit of a kick to it and very healthy.

I got the recipe originally online but I have made some changes to suit my taste – here goes:

You need

3 chicken breasts

1 red pepper

4 carrots

1 leek

5 cloves of garlic

1 onion

chili flakes or 1 red chili

1 tin of tomatoes

tomato puree

1 chicken stock cube

Double cream (I use at least 200mg)

Cream cheese ( I use small tub of philadelphia)

3 2,5 liters of water

Chilli heatwave Dorites, sour cream and grated cheese for later.

Heat oil in a big pot and put all the fresh vegetables and let them simmer in the oil. Add chicken stock cube, tin of tomatoes and garlic. Cut the chicken into fine little pieces and fry on a pan for 5 minutes, add salt and pepper and chilli flakes or fresh chilli. When almost cooked through add the chicken to the pot of vegetables simmering away. Lastly add the cream cheese and double cream and that is it!

The longer you let it cook over a small heat the better it gets, I usually give it about 2 hours.

When you are ready to eat it top it off with sour cream, grated cheese and the Doritos – this is a must!
