Santa Fe Chicken Fajita Soup

"I found this recipe on Its so yummy. Perfect for a cold night. It calls for fat free cream cheese and light Velvetta but ive always used regular. So you can fix it anyway you want to. I also cut down on the marinating cause I have a 4 yr old and if I go the entire 30 min its too hot for her. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!"

  1. Made for the Fall PAC 2012 Orphanage tag game. I cut the recipe in half for DH and I and we took this down to sit at the ocean....wonderful but rich. I did use homemade chicken broth and cut the cream cheese and light Velveeta cheese down (I might do so a little more) but it is a delicious soup and one I will make again.


Ok I guess its about time to fill this out.:) Im 26 yrs old,been married to the greatest guy ever for 5 yrs now,and we have a 3 yr old little girl. I was born with a medical condition called TAR syndrome. All it means is that I only have 1 bone in each lower arm.(the long bone) Which makes them shorter than average. I could get it fixed but I really dont see the point. Ive lived 26 yrs with them being this way. I really dont know if I could function with longer arms. :) If you have any questions..just ask. I love this site. Ive been telling everyone about it. Ive really been cooking more because of finding zaar. I love to read almost anything,scrapbook,making mosaics(just getting started) and photography. I really havent had a whole lot of time for any of these things but Im going to make a effort to slow down and start doing my stuff again. Im also am getting into 4 wheeling with my family.
