Pure Deliciousness Ahead. . .

So, I love cooking. It's one of my favorite things to do. I hate trying to decide what to make though. But, other than that, I love it. :) And adding my own flair to a recipe just makes it that much better. Who doesn't love to make a recipe theirs? So, I am sharing a new favorite of mine that I just created. Spicy Chicken Taco Soup. You will need-

2 Large Chicken Breasts
1/2 of an Onion (chopped)
1 Tsp Olive or Vegetable Oil
1 Can Black Beans
1 Can Pinto Beans
1 Can Kidney Beans
1 Can White Kidney Beans
1- 7 oz Can El Pato Tomato Sauce (Yellow Can)
1 Can Red Enchilada Sauce
Taco Seasoning

In a large frying pan, saute onions in oil until slightly browned. Dump into large pot. Add all the cans of beans and sauces to the pot. Turn heat to med-high and let boil for 20-25 minutes. While the soup is boiling, cook your chicken in a frying pan with some Taco Seasoning to flavor. Cook it until it is almost done (A little pink in the middle) and then cut it up into small pieces and throw into the pot. Add about 1 tsp of taco seasoning to the soup and, depending on how spicy you like things, lots of Tapatio! (We love spicy things in this household) Let simmer for another 10-15 minutes and then serve with sour cream, shredded cheese and cilantro. (The cilantro adds this amazing flavor to it, trust me. So good!) Another wonderful addition is cornbread and honey-butter! YUMMY! Dig in and enjoy!

Ash, very impressive. I love to make my own recipes too, but I could never tell you the amounts or ingredients that ended up in the finished product. I'm not as organized as you. This sounds really good.
