Congratulations Liz:) Please email me at email@example.com and I will get the wonderful ‘Simple Suppers: Easy Comfort Food Your Whole Family Will Love’ cookbook out to you asap!
Now on to a favorite simple supper at my house~ Southwest Chicken Tortellini Chowder. This soup comes together quickly and has the best flavor! My whole family loves it, even my husband, who is not a soup lover like me:) If I have cilantro, then I sprinkle it on top before serving, but you don’t need to. I love zucchini squash and almost always have one in the fridge, but you could do any vegetable you like. I try to keep cheese tortellini in the freezer for a quick dinner if needed–but everything else in this soup I almost always have on hand. I really LOVE this recipe and hope you enjoy it too:)
