Baja Chicken Soup: Slow Cooker

One of life's simple wonders is the power of a hearty soup on a cold, snowy day. More than just heart-warming, the aromas and flavors warm the whole house. That's what I really like about this recipe for Baja Chicken Soup. It will kill the chill and, to borrow a phrase from middle school, warm your form. A glance at the ingredients might suggest this soup brings the heat on several levels. I can tell you I am not a big fan of spicy hot, but this recipe is the perfect balance. It is spicy delicious and really a breeze to make. You can make it on the stove top, but I opted for a slow cooker version this time. Enjoy.
