Sunday Sentiments, Shenans, and Clean Chicken Enchilada Soup

Quite the low key weekend up in here.

Weekend Workouts...

First of all, I posted this on my Advocare Runner FB page and clearly lots of you related.  Poor us.

Anyway, back to weekend workouts...

Friday-  5 miles on the tread at 5 a.m.   5 at 5.  Perfect. 

Saturday-  Body Pump and 25 minutes on the guillotine, followed by a whole lot of sitting on my bum in the lounge while socializing for approx 90 minutes.

Sunday-  8 miles on the tread.  Shoot me now.  Not really.  It was super therapeutic, actually.

 But yes, a super low key weekend up in here.  Allow me to show you thy ways....

Exhibit A...

I mean???

Who wants to do anything fun in this?   The answer is no one.

So I did what any sane person would do.

I drank a whole lotta hot tea and wore my favorite slippers.   Errrrday, baby.

We watched that quasi bootleg version of Frozen that I talked about a couple weeks ago.  OMG, it was so easy!   Clearly we're all going to jail but it was a fab five freddy of a night.   Loaded that baby right up on the Ipad and then watched it on the big screen via Apple TV.

There was some venturing out in the blizzard of 2014 last night for a birthday dinner.   However, I was home by 9:10, granny style.

Oh and we made snow ice cream.  Do you guys know about this?   If you've got kids and live in the polar vortex like me, you need to do this immediately.  Was a huge hit in these parts and super easy.

So today, because it was still basically "blizzard-ing," I knew I needed to bust out the crock pot.    The thought occurred  the second I woke up.

Chicken Enchilada Soup (oh yeah...)


1 bag chicken tenderloins (I used TJ's all natural)
1 chopped yellow onion
2 cans green chili's
1 can regular diced tomatoes
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1/2 bag frozen corn
1 can black beans
2 tbsp coconut oil
4 cloves minced garlic
2 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp oregano
sea salt (to taste)
ground pepper (to taste)

Oh Em Gee.  Throw that stuff in the crock on high for about 4 hours and it's #onlikeDK.    You could definitely make it stove top but for some reason, that seems like more work to me.  Don't judge.

Okay, so here's the deal, I was craving something crunchy and carby.  It couldn't be remedied. 

Enter these gluten free, delicious sweet potato tortilla chips.

These were amazing on top of said enchilada soup.  They were.

Oh and a giant scoop of the hottest salsa this side of the Mason-Dixon.

Oh Ma Word.

You guys need both of these items pretty much immediately.  

But yes, this soup is legit.  And it's clean.  And you need it on the menu this week.  #obvi.

Hope you all had an amazing weekend and I'll see you back here tomorrow for some shenans in one capacity or another.

Oh and ps-  Don't forget to enter the Cap City free entry giveaway!   We are on the countdown!   You do NOT wanna miss this race!  #facty.


  1. How many pounds is one bag of tenderloins from Trader Joes? I have chicken breast and chicken tenderloin.....just not a bag from trader joes and not sure how much to include. Thanks!

  2. can you get fresh (non frozen) chicken tenderloins and make the recipe the same?

  3. Just wondering if you can put the chicken in frozen or if you should thaw it first? Or even cook it and shred it first??

  4. Is there any chicken stock in this recipe? I don't see any liquid listed?

  5. I used 2 lbs chicken breasts and 4-6 cups of chicken bone broth.
