Dear Family & Friends

Welcome to our website! Thank you for visiting, we hope that you'll find all the information you need about us here. Please come back often, as we will be updating regularly!
It's hard to believe that we've been married for over 2 years now. We have been so busy planning our future, the time has just flown by. But we've been having a lot of fun with it, and thought we would set up this site to let family and friends keep up to date with our lives. Near or far or where ever you are you will know what we been up to.

For those of you who haven't yet heard our engagement story (there is probably not many of you left, as we love to tell it!), please visit "Our Engagement" to hear how Cody popped the question! If you want to learn a bit about how we met and came to be the fabulous couple you know and love, please visit "Our Story".

Slow Cooker Green Chile Enchilada Soup

Here is what you are gonna need:
  • 32 oz chicken both or 4 bouillon cubes
  • 24 oz whole chicken breasts or shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 2 cans of Green Chili enchilada sauce
  • 4 oz can of diced green chilies or fresh
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 2 tbsp of ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp of chile powder
  • 1 tsp of onion powder
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 cup of frozen corn (defrosted)
  • 1 block of cream cheese (cut up into a few pieces)
  • 3/4 cup of rice
  • salt and pepper to taste (depending on the sodium level of your broth, you may need more salt.)
  • table spoon of corn starch (only if needed)
  1. In your slow cooker, mix together the broth, green enchilada sauce, green chilies, water, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and cumin.
  2. Add the chicken breasts to the crock pot and cook on low for 7 hours or add shredded chicken, rice and cream cheese in the crockpot and cook for 4-5 hours stirring every now and then.
  3. (Whole Chicken Breast) At the 7 hour mark, remove the chicken to another dish. Shred the chicken and put back in your slow cooker. Add the rice, corn and cream cheese to the soup mixture and replace the lid. Cook for another 30 minutes and stir the soup, making sure to get the cream cheese mixed in. You may need to cook just a bit longer to ensure the cream cheese is melted completely.
  4. At this point, you can judge to consistency of your soup. If you would like it thicker, mix a table spoon of corn starch with about 1/8 cup of water and then mix into the soup, after 10 to 20 minutes the soup should thicken considerably.
