So Hot: Enchilada Soup

As prepared by Baked Bree,

Can you feel the weather starting to cool down?

Leaves on the ground? Pumpkin coffee drinks? Me too. All I want to eat right now is eat warm and comforting soups. I think even the process of making soup is comforting. I love standing over the stove and stirring and sipping on a glass of wine, listening to some music. It really does make me happy.

Unfortunately, my family does not feel the same way. I tell them that I am making soup, and there is a collective groan. “Ugh... soup again, mom?” When I sat this bowl of creamy deliciousness in front of them they were skeptical, but after one bite, they all looked up from their bowls and declared it the best soup I have ever made.

Good enough for me!
