How is it even possible that October is almost over?! Eeek, Thanksgiving and Christmas are literally around the corner. Has anyone started Christmas shopping yet? Ok, I need to stop right there. Not even going there yet! Ha.

I really do love developing new simple weeknight dinner recipes. It’s so easy to get in a rut making the same dinners week after week. I hope that I can bring some new ideas into your kitchen.

I had this big pot of soup waiting for the boys after school this week and they devoured it…so did their friends 🙂 You won’t have a sink full of dishes either, just the one pot. Yippee!

Hope you enjoy friends, be sure to let me know how you liked it!

    Mmm have to try this version. Here at homebi make what we call “sopita” and I fry the dry noodles in oil add the veggies and continue sautéing then add in the rest of ingredients. Also sometimes a can of tomato sauce to give it the red look. Soon good. But I will try this way also because I’m always up to trying new ideas! Thanks!

    Did you read my mind today? It’s so cold and rainy and I am in dire need of hot, steamy, chicken noodle soup. I love the Mexican twist. Friday-Night-Mexican-Night every week 😉

    Nothing beats an easy one pot meal especially when it’s chicken noodle soup.

    This is such a delicious and easy weeknight meal- we HAVE to try this!!

    I hope this isn’t a dumb question but what kind of noodles are those, and where do I find them?

  15. 15

    I’m going to make double batch. One to eat right away and one to freeze, so when someone in the house is sick I’ll have it ready!

    Lynne says:

    Sounds really good and I love your recipes – what kind of noodles are used? Thanks Jenny

    Elisabeth S says:

    When you say “thin noodle”, can you give an example? I am having a hard time imagining this soup with angel hair pasta noodles. They seem like they wouldn’t soften up enough to give the right texture for chicken noodle soup.

    Priscilla says:

    I was wondering about the thin noodles, what brand?

  23. 23
    Lynne says:

    This looks so good – but what kind of noodles are used?

    DD says:

    I cannot wait to make this amazing looking soup. What kind of noodles do you use? Also you mention a chili was used but it is not in the directions.

    Fran Eaks says:

    I’ve been meaning to make this for a while–I finally made it tonight. Easy, fast, and delicious. Don’t put the lime juice and cilantro in until the end. very good.

    Barbara says:

    This is one of my favorite soups. I use linguine noodles, broken in half, and plenty of them.

    Michelle says:

    I’ve made this recipe before and it is delicious, but calling it a one pot recipe is deceptive. Two of the ingredients have to be cooked ahead of time.
