Rainy chilly spring day in the Shenandoah Valley
Saturday was rainy in the Shenandoah Valley and, with the second day of the weekend offering up more rain, mist, and cool temperatures in the mid-50s, it seemed a good day to make up something warm and yummy for the family. What better day to cook up a big pot of Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup?
Punctuated with such tastebud-satisfying spices as chili, onion, and garlic powder along with black beans (extras that I add), chili beans, corn, tomatoes, and salsa, this easy-to-make tummy pleaser tastes better the longer the flavors meld. The pot, with enough for lunch and supper, sits on the stove and everyone helps themselves throughout the day. Add some tortilla chips and garden salad to be sure and fill the hungriest diner.
It's spring in the Shenandoah Valley....
