Recipe: Enchilada Soup

Happy New Year!

Some of you may have established health goals for 2019, some of you may be left feeling lackluster after a month plus of eating festive holiday fare, and some of you may be, like me, jokingly referring to yourself as “holiday hefty”. No matter what, this food-rainbow-enchilada-soup is both good and good for you.

Those of you who know me know I love enchiladas. They’re good all year round, but changing it up with a soup in wintertime is nice. This recipe has a delayed spice kick and it rules.
