On My Hearth: Southwestern Slow Cooker Chicken and Potato Soup

I'm getting back on track as far as my healthy eating goes as well, cuttin' out the cookies and jumpin' on the veggie bandwagon! It's a bit nippy here at the Ormond house, perfect soup weather. We're going shopping this morning and then visiting some friends this afternoon so it'll be lovely to come home and find this hearty, savory dinner waiting for us!

The bread-eaters in the family will be eating Baked Tortilla Chips along with the soup.
