the BEST vegetable soup!!!

it's still hot here. definitely NOT soup weather, but i was in the mood to cook (doesn't happen often!!!) and in the mood for mexican chicken vegetable soup. it's my own recipe & i cook like my mom, so there are no measurements. ya just throw stuff in til it looks & tastes the way ya want it.
it's got: chicken, carrots, onions, celery, potatoes, tomatoes, 1.5 jalepenos (because that's how many were in the fridge!), some homemade salsa (whatever was left after i ran out of chips! - about a cup or so), green beans & corn, salt & pepper.

it's soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good!!!! like a bazillion times better than the gumbo i made a few months ago! i think i'll leave the lou-si-ana cookin' to amwacs & i'll stick with the texas cookin'!!! however, based on some of the conversations we've had, i'm afraid of what kind of critters meat he'd put in his cookin'!!!!!
got it all ready for a couple weeks' worth of lunches & dinners. just waiting for it to cool so i can put it in the freezer/fridge. had a bowl for dinner tonight & can't wait til lunch tomorrow!

but like i said, it's NOT soup weather &
BURNIN' UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
