Earlier this year, as we began planning our trip to Europe, the first thing we did was purchase Rick Steves: Europe through the Back Door book. 

It was incredibly helpful in choosing sights and getting lots of travel and packing advice.




One thing I missed the most food-wise while in Europe for a month was Mexican food! The first night we got home, I tried a new recipe: Slow Cooker Creamy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Soup (Recipe Runner)

We really enjoyed it! I made a few additions, including 1 chopped chipotle in adobo (about 1-2 T.), which gave it a soft smokey flavor with just the tiniest bit of spice. I also toasted up some soft burrito shells that needed to be used up, then threw them in at the end right before serving, creating a nice thickened texture.
