Being a wife, full-time mom, and student, and taking care of the house can turn into a busy day. I always want to make sure my husband has warm food by the time he arrives home. Now that I have a lot on my plate, sometimes I don’t have time to spend endless hours in the kitchen in order to make him a delicious meal. This is where my slow cooker/ “life savor” comes along. I have been following a paleo blog and on a journey to losing weight. One recipe that caught my eye was chicken enchilada soup.  When I made it this morning, it was simple and time-consuming. By the time I came home from school, there was an amazing aroma that was coming from my kitchen, so I had to make sure it tasted good (;

Also, I did not add 2 lbs of chicken, but instead just added four chicken breasts and also added half of a can of kidney beans. Let me know how you like it (:
