Chicken Tortilla Soup
I used to get tortilla soup all the time from a local Mexican restaurant but one day I got some near closing time and it was a big disappointment It was like they gave me the entire bottom of the pot that was sitting all day long with every ingredient soggy.
I was very upset. That night I told myself I would match their tortilla soup with my own. I would set up a table outside their restaurant serving small cups of my own soup and compare it to theirs.
The neighborhood would love mine. They would put me on their shoulders, parading me down the streets while chanting “tortilla soup, tortilla soup!”. Well one of those things came true, I came up with a tortilla soup recipe that is better than theirs. *High Fives*

Avocados filled with Corn Salad make the perfect party appetizer! These are easy to make! I love this Corn Salad Avocado Party Appetizer recipe!
Avocado, you beautiful thing. Want to know a surprising fact? I had my first avocado in my 20’s. As a kid we would never have them in the house and I never tasted guacamole. Then I slowly started to eat them as a sliced topping on my favorite tortilla soup. Now today, I’m licking clean (TMI?) the guacamole bowl. So yeah, I love you avocado, I’m sorry it took me so long to realize this.
With Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner I’m starting to think about parties. I love a good potluck where all your friends gather together and bring all types of food to enjoy. So I got to thinking about avocados…what could I do besides the usual guacamole? And what I could do fun with them? Then one afternoon it hit me, Avocado Sailboats! And even better they’re filled with my favorite Mexican Corn Salad.
The Best Avocado Appetizer!
These are simple to make. You can easily make a few dozen of these Avocado Sailboats in less than 15 minutes. I love that they’re full of fresh ingredients unlike some other fried finger foods that might make its way to the table. I hope you give these a try!
You’ll need 12 avocados which will make 24 sailboats. If you want to scale it up or down, then do the math accordingly. Or you can just follow the recipe exactly and if you have leftover salsa eat it with a spoon, it’s that good.

Mason Jar Salad Recipes
I’m obessed with Mason Jar Lunches! They are just the perfect lunch time choice because you get to pack lunch. Also, since you’re packing lunch it’s a economical choice. Plus.. they look pretty cute!
Mason jars work great because it’s a vertical layered lunch. Instead of mixing it together like a salad, you stack it together. This allows you to keep some vegetables inside more crunchier instead of wilting at the touch of a salad dressing. I also love how quick it is to make a Mason Jar lunch. I can make the entire weeks worth in 30 minutes. Because you are packing all the ingredients together in the jar you are keeping the vegetables fresher longer.

These Triple Chocolate Avocado Peanut Butter Brownie Bites are delicious! The recipe uses 1 whole avocado which is a healthy alternative to oils. Because they’re bite size they are perfect for parties or guilt free snacking!
Oh friends, have I got a treat for you. These Triple Chocolate Avocado Peanut Butter Brownie Bites are something real special. Remember when you were young and got that first kiss and you got all those butterflies in your stomach? Well that is the feeling I got when eating the first bite. Oh brownie bites, I have a big crush on you, I wrote my landline phone number on your hand, please call me and we can hang out at the arcade Friday night.
These are triple chocolate because I have been craving chocolate real bad. There’s chocolate chips that melt inside the brownie bites which will turn into chocolate lava when you take a first bite (butterflies!), there’s cocoa powder and then there’s chocolate peanut butter. Triple the chocolate, triple the fun, that’s my motto in life.
The real star of these brownie bites is… are you ready? Avocado. Yup, that’s right. One whole avocado is baked inside of these making these chocolate treats creamy, fudgy and beyond delicious.
I love baking with avocado because it means no oils are needed, we’re like bbbfs (best baking buds forever). Avocados have naturally good fats, over 75% of the fat in a avocado is unsaturated. That means it’s a great food substitute for a more nutrient-dense dessert. Avocados can be used in sweet, savory or snack dishes and what makes it even better is they are cholesterol-free, sodium-free and less than 1 gram of sugar per 1 oz serving. Don’t you just want to grab a avocado and eat it right now?
Now grab some of these brownie bites and get a room.
You can either sprinkle these brownie bites with powdered sugar or holiday festive sprinkles – the choice is yours!
And wait till you see how creamy and fudgy they are in the middle. You’ll just fall in love.

This soup is delicious. It’s easy to make with a few canned goods. It doesn’t take much time, minus some simmering here and there. Please give this soup a chance.
