Slow Cooker Spicy Mexican Lime Chicken Soup

Guys, I’m going to seven weddings this summer.  Seven.  Not to mention all of the showers, bachelorettes, and now baby birthday parties I’ll be attending {and hosting}.  We’re going to be busy bees starting this spring and flying all the way through until the fall.  Like I look at the calendar and it’s September already and then it’s Halloween and then Thanksgiving and then Christmas again.  Not that I’m complaining…being busy can be a bummer, but being busy with all of that fun will be a total exhausting blast.

Anyway, what I was getting to before I started rambling was this:  Seven. Weddings.  Let me put that differently for you.  Seven opportunities {plus those showers and bachelorettes} to be in a cocktail dress with my legs and arms showing with tons of my friends instead of being curled up in yoga pants and fuzzy socks and a tunic with my baby.  So I need to get on the whole diet and exercise train.

But realllyyyy I hate diets.  And salads.  What I love is food that still tastes delicious and fresh and yummy but is lighter and fresher and healthier.  So I’m going to attempt to throw a couple of those together.  And share with you guys too, because, while many of you are still probably in the frozen tundra that is most of the country, summer will be here before you know it and those silly bathing suits will be back with it.

By the way, this is one of those super easy throw everything in the pot recipes that will have you done with dinner and on your way before the baby even wakes up.  Can’t get any better than that.
